Residents in the Tema Metropolitan Assembly affected by the cut in the water supply are pleading with the management of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) to restore their water as they are hit with water shortage.
Registering their dissatisfaction with the situation, they indicated that due to the shortage of water they are compelled to purchase bags of sachet water for various domestic use.
The demands for bags of sachet water have caused an increase in its price, they indicated.
The concerned residents, therefore, said they would be grateful if the management of the Ghana Water Company Limited supplies them with water for a day in order to refill their empty tanks.
It comes after the GWCL announced last week that there will be an interruption in water supply to some parts of the Greater Accra Region from Thursday, April 22, to Monday, April 26.
They said in a statement the affected areas in the eastern part of the capital include Afienya, Apollonia, Gbetsele, Ashiaman, all communities in Tema (Community 1 to 25), Prampram, East Legon Trasaco, Adjei Kojo, Free Zones enclave, Coca Cola, among others.
The water supply cut was to enable “engineers to replace two hundred meters of a weak session of the main 42-inch transmission pipeline from Kpong to Tema, around Gbetsele junction.”
