GWCL apologises to Sekondi-Takoradi residents

Management of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has apologised to residents of Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis for its inability to supply water to the metropolis since the evening of Tuesday, June 14, 2022. 

It explained that, the situation was dueto problems with power supply to both Daboase and Inchaban Water Treatment Plants, adding that the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) explained that three of their pylons fell last Tuesday evening, during the heavy downpour.

A release signed by Communications Manager, Western and Central regions, Nana Yaw BarimaBarnie, further said  the ECG  was currently supplying power to Takoradi from Central Region.

However, due to the long distance involved, there is significant drop in the voltage for which reason GWCL equipment, which required stable and normal voltage, are unable to start, it said, adding that, even though, residents have power in their homes, the GWCL plants could not operate due to the low voltage level.

The release said that, since the incident occurred, the company had not been able to produce water from the two plants which were the main sources of water supply to the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.

Repairs were expected to have been completed on Saturday, “barring any unforeseen challenges,” ECG assured.
