THE GHANA Water Company Limited (GWCL) has apologised to customers in and around Adabraka in Accra over intermittent flow of water in the community.
A statement signed by Mr Stanley Martey, Head of Communications and Public Relations, GWCL and copied to the DAILY HERITAGE yesterday, said “the management of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) wishes to inform its cherished customers in and around Adabraka that it is aware of the current intermittent flow of water in the community and that “we are working around the clock to restore regular flow with maximum pressures as it used to exist.”
“In the meantime, Management has deployed over 30 tankers to the community to serve consumers at vantage points to ameliorate the situation.”
Mr Martey said the challenge is as a result of construction of unauthorised structures on GWCL pipe-lines and valves, causing blockage and consistent burst of the lines, thus causing low pressures and erratic flow in some areas.
“Please be assured that the GWCL engineers are in control of the situation and are working assiduously to restore flow in the community.
“Management of the GWCL apologises to consumers for the inconvenience caused by the situation and assures the general public that there is no reason to panic as the two major treatment plants (Weija and Kpong Treatment plants) that serve Greater Accra are fully operational and that the current challenge is only peculiar to the Adabraka area.
“Management wishes also to advise the general public and prospective developers to desist from building on pipe-lines, GWCL valves and government demarcated areas for the utilities, to forestall similar situation occurring in the future. The cooperation of the general public is greatly appreciated.”
