The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) says government’s payment of water bills for all Ghanaians as part of the COVID-19 interventions will end today (Tuesday, June 30 2020).
The GWCL in a statement dated June 29, 2020, said the directive to serve ‘free water’ will end in the month of June.
The month of June marks the end of the Governments directive to the Ghana Water Company Limited to serve Ghanaians with water for free as part of measures to curb the rapid spread of the covid-19 pandemic. Customers of GWCL must please note, that from hence, the payment of water bills will be the responsibility of the customer.
The statement said vendors could resume their normal business after the last meter readings in June.
It further indicated that customers who were disconnected but reconnected to enable them enjoy the free water during the three months period, must as a matter of urgency pay their arrears to remain connected.
Below is the full statement:
President Akufo-Addo in April 2020, announced that the government would absorb the water bills for all Ghanaians for the months of April, May and June as part of measures to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is against this backdrop that the GWCL started the free water delivery and is, therefore, reminding all Ghanaians that the directive will end today.
