Damaged pipelines fixed, water supply to parts of Accra restored
The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has resumed the supply water to some parts of Accra following the completion of repair works on its damaged pipelines.
Water supply to some areas in the capital was disrupted on Thursday after the Weija Treatment Plant was shut down.
The Company said the plant had to go off to enable it to determine the extent of damage to some major pipelines around the Obetsebi Lamptey interchange.
But a day after the suspension, a message from the company indicated that repair works have been successfully completed and that full operations are expected to resume by close of day today, Friday.
“We are happy to inform you that the repair work which was carried out during the night and has been completed successfully. Water production has resumed at the Weija Treatment Plant. As you may well know, it will take a little longer for all to get water especially those on higher grounds but the system should be fully charged for all to get water from midday to close of work today. We remain at your service.”
A few weeks ago, the company suspended water supply to Dodowa, Adentan, Madina and other communities in parts of Accra over power challenges.
The Ghana Water Company said it could not pump or supply water from the Dodowa Booster station which serves the North-Eastern part of Accra, as a result of the destruction of some electrical cables that feed the station.
