Accra will face a water shortfall while the GWCL repairs a faulty pipeline.

As it replaces a transmission pipeline in Tema, the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has warned consumers in the Greater Accra Region, especially those in the eastern sections, to expect a water supply disruption.
Water supply will be disrupted when GWCL engineers replace the 200-meter 42-inch transmission pipeline from Kpong to Tema, near the Gbetsele Junction, according to a press release issued on Monday, April 19.

According to GWCL, the situation is forcing it to drain many amounts of water every day, putting a strain on the amount of water available for use.

On Thursday, April 22nd, the job will begin and finish on Monday, April 26th.
“As a result, management is urging Accra residents, especially those in the eastern part of the city, to stockpile adequate water for consumption during the shutdown.”

However, the company claims that safeguards have been placed in order to ensure that the effect will be minimal.
It says the free Covid-19 reservoirs provided by the government will still be filled with water to enable consumers to fetch for free while hospitals and schools will also be served.

It said the necessary equipment and logistics, as well as personnel required to execute the project, have been secured and so it will be completed as expected, barring any unexpected situations.
