The Ghana Water Company Limited, GWCL office in the Eastern Region has started rationing water to consumers in thirty communities in and around Koforidua, the regional capital.
The decision follows the implementation of a water demand programme by the country`s water management body to promote efficient and equitable use of potable water.
Management of the Company said rationing water during the period would help serve customers in the affected communities better and address the increasing demand for drinkable water by customers.
The GWCL in a statement indicated that the water distribution will be done within three days’ intervals.
Management of the Company expressed regret for the inconvenience the decision might cause consumers and advised residents to store water always.
It also urged everyone to use treated water judiciously.
