Water supply to Western parts of Accra interrupted as Ghana Water Company replaces faulty valves

More than 25 areas and their surrounding communities in the Western part of Accra, have had their water supply interrupted from Monday, September 13, and will last till Friday, September 17, 2021.

The 4-day interruption in water supply is to enable the Ghana Water Company to replace faulty valves on the main 900 millimetre transmission pipelines, which impedes water flow and causes serious challenges in the distribution lines.

In a statement, the Ghana Water Company said there are some leakages also within the supply area, causing the company to lose volumes of water daily and consequently having a serious impact on the volumes available for consumption.

According to the Ghana Water Company, its engineers would also take advantage of the four days’ shutdown to install some electromagnetic meters at the Weija Treatment Plant to help the company’s drive to reduce Non-Revenue Water.
