The Management of Ghana Water Limited (GWL) has announced a scheduled shutdown of one of the Plants in Kpong, serving the Krobo-Somanya area, from the 14th to 15th of February, 2024.

This temporary closure is necessary to facilitate the installation of a new interconnection pipeline and foot valves at the Kpong Water Treatment Plant (WTP), aimed at enhancing its capacity by approximately 3 million gallons per day (mgd), equivalent to 13,600m3.

While acknowledging the inconvenience this may cause, GWL assures the public that its team of engineers will work diligently within the estimated time frame to restore water supply to the affected communities.

This measure aligns with GWL’s commitment to significantly improve water supply capacity from Kpong to parts of the Eastern and Greater Accra Regions, addressing the growing water demands of the population.

Affected communities, including Somanya, the entire Krobo area, and surrounding areas, are urged to bear with GWL during this temporary shutdown period.

Additionally, Management advises all essential service providers, particularly hospitals and schools in the area, to ensure they have adequate water storage arrangements for the duration of the shutdown.

Alternative arrangements have been made to mitigate the impact of the shutdown, and consumers are encouraged to communicate with their community leaders, assemblymen, and unit committee members in case of emergencies.
