The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) on Tuesday started pumping water from the Kpong Treatment Plant through its 42 inches’ diameter pipelines after completion of repair works. The company assured residents of Tema and its environs who had lived without water flowing through their taps during the replacement of 120 metres of its aged steel pipe from Thursday April 22, to Sunday April 25, that the water was safe.
The water was pumped through one of its pump, but had to cut it due to some interruptions it encountered at the Tema Regional Communication Manager of GWCL, Mr Sampson Ampah. He said the water had to be pumped gradually to avoid bursting of the line due to the inactivity and dryness of the lines. He added that the company had to ensure that all customers were served, the normal water rationing was not being used, to enable them pump water to residents.
