The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) says it has put in place a system to ensure the regular supply of water to essential facilities in the country during the coronavirus outbreak.

Due to the variance in the increasing demand and the volumes that GWCL is able to supply, the strategic water supply-demand Management Plan will ensure that essential service providers and facilities are constantly checked on and supplied with water.

GWCL, however, “wishes to emphasize that, it is essential for these institutions to store water and will again advise these institutions and the general public who do not have adequate storage facilities to do so.

“This will ensure that they have enough water so that in the event of interrupted water supply, which could be due to power challenges, emergency repair works etc. they can still be served from their storage tanks.”
