Bui Dam To Be Spilled Monday

The Bui Power Authority, managers of the Bui Dam has served notice the dam will be spilled from Monday, December 14 to 16.

According to the Authority the dam has experienced maximum inflow of water and intends to carry out testing of the spill gate.

The Authority is however certain the discharge will not affect the inflows needed for the operations of the Bui Generating Station in the next year.

Mumbilla Salifu, External and Community Relations Manager further assured the public that all water discharged from the dam would flow into the Volta Lake to enhance power generation in the Akosombo dam as well as the Kpong Generation Station.

He said the water to be discharged during the test, is expected to remain below the river levels normally experienced in the rainy seasons prior to the construction of the dam.

According to Mr Salifu the authority would work closely with the National Disaster Management Organisation, the District and Municipal assemblies and Security agencies to sensitise communities living downstream from the dam to Buipe.
