This is to allow for repair works and replacement of some parts of a damaged transmission pipeline between Tema and Kpong.
The exercise is expected to take place from Thursday, April 22, 2021 to Monday, April 26, 2021.

Consumers of water in Afienya, Apallonia, Gbetsele, Ashaiman, Katamanso, Kakasunanka, Adjei Kojo, East Legon, and Trasaco have however, been advised to store enough water for the five days the tap will not be running.

The GWCL has however stated that the government’s COVID-19 free water reservoirs will be filled with water tankers to enable consumers fetch for free within this period.
