The Ghana Water Company (GWCL) says its engineers are working diligently to ensure water supply is restored to consumers in Tema and the eastern part of Accra.

In a statement, the Company said the current interruption of water supply in those areas is due to “some serious leakages detected along the main 42 inch transmission pipe-line from the Kpong Treatment Plant to the Tema Booster Station and along the motor-way to the Okponglo Booster Station.”

This, the Company says, has resulted in the low pressures and intermittent flow being experienced by consumers.

The affected communities include; Tema Industrial area, Tema Harbour, all communities in Tema, Tema General Hospital, Sakumono, Batsonaa, Spintex, Coca Cola area, Adjiringano, parts of East Legon and other surrounding communities.

“Management of GWCL, therefore, wishes to inform members of the general public as well as institutions or organisations within the affected areas to bear with the situation, while engineers work around the clock to rectify the situation.

“Management of GWCL wishes to assure the general public that GWCL engineers are working assiduously to rectify the situation and water supply will be restored soon as repair works are completed.”

“Management of GWCL regrets the inconvenience caused to the consuming public”, the statement added.
