Ghana Water Limited Restores Power to Ashanti Region Treatment Plants Amid Water Shortages

Ghana Water Limited (GWL) has successfully restored power to its water treatment plants in the Ashanti region following recent challenges with erratic electricity supply. The company experienced intermittent water supply issues in some parts of the Greater Kumasi Metropolis due to unstable power to key treatment plants and booster stations.

The Barekese and Owabi Treatment Plants, along with the Achiase Booster stations, were affected by the inconsistent power supply, resulting in water shortfalls in the Greater Kumasi Metropolis. These facilities play a crucial role in distributing water to a significant portion of households in the region.

In response to the situation, the Public Relations Officer of GWL-Ashanti, Ebenezer Padi Narh, confirmed that power has been restored to the treatment plants following discussions with the Electricity Company. The resolution aims to address the challenges faced by residents and businesses in the area, who have been coping with water scarcity in recent weeks.

Households and businesses, including palm oil processing hubs and hair salons, have struggled with limited water availability, impacting their daily activities and productivity. Some residents expressed the need for a sustainable solution to the perennial water shortages, emphasizing the impact on their businesses and quality of life.

The successful restoration of power to the treatment plants is expected to alleviate the water shortages in the affected areas, providing relief to residents and businesses that heavily rely on a consistent water supply for various activities.
