Bringing people together to improve communication of research findings
Contractors working on water expansion projects in Ghana are working feverishly to complete the projects on schedule to enhance water supply throughout the country. Currently 22 major water projects being undertaken by the government are at various stages of completion. Some have been completed while others are about 90percent complete.
The Communications Manager of the Ghana Water Company Stanley Martey said this when the Company took the Parliamentary Press Corps round some Parliament approved project sites at the Kpong Water Works in the Eastern region. He mentioned the Water Supply projects at Kpong, Wa, Teshie-Nungua, Manpong, Kwahu-Ridge among others as some of the ongoing projects. Mr. Martey said the Kpong South and North ATMA Rural Water projects which will be completed in November this year will bring to an end the water challenges in Accra and its environs.
The Communications Manager of the Ghana Water Company Stanley Martey stated that presently the Company is not breaking even. This, he explained is due to illegal connections and leakages on pipelines.
The Site Engineer of the China Gezhouba Group one of the international companies working on the projects, Fredrick Akuffo-Boafo said the company is constructing a new water treatment plant, laying new transmission main pipelines from Kpong through Dodowa to Accra, improving works on distribution lines, constructing reservoirs and providing dedicated power supply lines to ensure interrupted power supply to the treatment plant among others.
