- Government will be introducing new prepaid water meters in 2018
- These meters will be installed in dense populations like Accra
Ghanaians will be using prepaid water meters in 2018. This is according to the minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Joseph Kofi Adah.
Speaking to Joy FM on the midday news, the minister revealed that 80,000 prepaid units will be installed across densely populated areas in Accra, Kumasi as well as the Volta Regions among others.
The issue of using prepaid water meters attracted grave opposition when it was first brought up in the Mahama administration as Ghanaians complained about the effect it would have on the poor and marginalised.
But according to the minister, the installation of these meters will ensure the proper streamline of water distribution and usage in the country.
