Residents in the Eastern Accra will have their water supply interrupted between September 14 and September 20, 2020, according to a statement issued by the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL).
This has become necessary for the company to replace two kilometres of weak transmission pipe-lines from Kpong to Tema.
Areas that will be affected by the interruption include Afienya, Apollonia, Gbetsele, Ashaiman, Katamanso, Kakasunanka, AdjeiKojo, East Legon, Trassaco, and all the communities in Tema (Community 1 to 25).
The others are Free Zones enclave, Tema Industrial Area, Dawhenya, Prampram, Spintex Road, Batsonaa, Coca Cola, Kasapreko, Manet, Lashibi, Klagon, Sakumono, and surrounding communities.
The full statement reads;
“The Management of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), wishes to inform the general public, that there will be an interruption of water supply to the eastern part of the Greater Accra Region from Monday the 14th to Saturday the 20th of September, 2020,” the statement said.
“GWCL Engineers will be replacing close to 2 kilometres of a weak session of the main 42-inch diameter transmission pipe-line from Kpong to Tema, which is causing GWCL to lose several volumes of water on daily basis and consequently having a serious impact on the volumes available for consumption”.
Meanwhile, the GWCL says it has put in place measures including the provision of free water reservoirs to serve the affected areas.
Additionally, “essential service providers like the hospitals and schools will also be served with water tankers”.
