The Ghana Water Company says it has put in place measures across the country to ensure constant water supply to essential service providers and critical facilities.

These facilities, the water company said in a press release,  include hospitals, clinics, airports, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) and hotels.

This is to “ensure that these facilities are adequately served to enable them to store to meet their 24/7 water demand,” the Ghana Water Company explained in the release.

The utility company said a strategic water supply-demand management plan has been rolled in acknowledgement of the importance of water supply in combating the coronavirus pandemic in Ghana.

GWCL also said it was essential for these institutions to store water and also urged the public to have adequate water storage facilities.

‘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,” the Ghana Water Company emphasised in the release.
