Beginning this month, customers of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) should expect an erratic flow of water as the company says it has been forced to ration water supply.
A statement signed by the Head of Communications Stanley Martey said the company is faced with water supply challenges due to the onset of the dry season.
The company has therefore urged individuals to find efficient ways of using water and storing enough water in the interim.
“With the onset of the dry season, the entire country is expected to experience challenges with water supply because of the depletion of raw water from the various water bodies.
“As a result, consumers may encounter erratic flow of water in some parts of the country, especially the Greater Accra, Ashanti, Central, Western and Northern Regions,” the statement revealed.
However, the management of the GWCL wishes to assure the consuming public that it has put in place measures to ameliorate the situation.
It further called on the general public to be part of the solution, hence, consumers are advised to strictly to the following conservation measures listed below.
- Cease indiscriminate watering of lawns with treater water
- Moderate the use of treated water for car washing by resorting to the use of buckets, instead of hosing
- Shut all taps when not in use
- Repair all leakages in your homes, like overflowing reservoirs and dripping taps and valves (the little drops of water also swell up your water bills)
- Report all burst pipes and leakages immediately to the nearest GWCL district offices, customer service centres and fault offices.
- Report all persons engaged in illegal connections, by-passes and all malpractices against GWCL.
Also, you can send google GPS locations, pictures and videos of the burst and leakages to GWCL WhatsApp lines 0555123393 or 0555155524.
The public can call 0207385089 or 0207385090.
