Water in Ho after Fortnight of Shortage

Residents of Ho, the Volta Regional capital are heaving a deep sigh of relief after water has begun flowing through their pipes signaling an end to about two weeks of water shortage in the township.

The water situation occasioned by broken down pipeline affected majority of residents who could not store enough water before the unexpected shortage forcing them to go for water from all unhygienic sources for use with others travelling long distances to neighbouring districts in search of water.

It was therefore like answered prayers when Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) by Wednesday, August 28, resumed water production and pumping to customers in Ho in fulfillment of a promise made by the company to ensure water got to the people on the said date.

On August 18, 2019 the company’s main transmission pipeline from the Kpeve Treatment Plant that serves the entire Ho Township gave way as a result of high tides and levels of the river at Akrofu in the Ho West District.

It took the sector Minister, GWCL in collaboration with other sectors to carry out repair works on the broken down transmission pipeline for a sustainable solution to the problem leading to the resumption of water supply to the Ho municipality.

Though the repair works on the pipeline at Akrofu to restore water to the people got completed, it started on a tragic note when one staff of the company was found dead in the process.

According to reports, three of the GWCL staff who were trying to fix the problem, jumped from the bridge into the river with only two coming back. It took the community members to organise a search party to retrieve the body of the missing person.
