Dawhenya flood not emanating only from spilt dam – GIDA

Source The Ghana Report

The Ghana Irrigation Development Authority (GIDA) has denied that the flooding in the area is solely caused by the spillage from the Dawhenya Dam.

Several homes in Dawhenya in the Greater Accra Region flooded on November 27, 2023, displacing 100s of people.

Residents blamed the flooding solely on spillage from the irrigation in the area.

However, a statement issued on Thursday, November 30, 2023, by GIDA said there was another water source in the area that contributed to the flooding.

“The perception that the flood is emanating only from the spilled water from the dam is not factual and can never be. The flow from the second basin is a major contributor to the flow in the downstream channel as was observed by the GIDA team and the Member of Parliament Hon. Samuel Nartey George who visited the dam site on Tuesday 28th November 2023.

“It is important to note that anytime it rains simultaneously in the two watersheds, when the two rivers have the same time of concentration (TC), the flow level rises in the outfall channel. It has been established that this phenomenon has a three (3) year re-occurrence interval. The indigenes are aware of but continue to build on the watercourse downstream,” the statement said.
