GWCL Shuts Down Nawuni Water Plant Over Bagre Dam Spillage

Management of Ghana Water Company Limited, (GWCL), has temporarily shut down the Nawuni water plant that supplies the Northern region with water due to the spillage of the Bagre dam.

A statement by the Management of Ghana Water Company Limited, (GWCL), sighted by DGN Online read “Management of Ghana Water Company Limited, (GWCL), Northern Region, Tamale, regrets to announce for the information of the public and its cherished customers in the Tamale Metropolis and its environs that reference a communication received on the Spillage of the Bagre and Kompienga Dams, it may be compelled to Temporary Shut-Down Production for the Protection of its Equipment and Installations.”

According to GWCL Standard Operating Procedure, the maximum level of the Intake Dam should not exceed 36 feet but as of this morning, Tuesday, September 20, 2022, the level of the In-take Dam stood at 30.40 feet in addition to the Bagre Dam spillage.

“Management would like the public and its cherished customers to understand that any operation beyond the maximum operating feet puts the Water Facility in jeopardy which could lead to the entire collapse and destruction of its equipment and installations,” it said.

“Management would therefore want to assure the public and its cherished customers that water supply would continue once the river level is within its Standard Operating levels.”
