Parts of Accra will from Thursday 22 April 2021 experience interruption in water supply, the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has announced.
The exercise which will last for five days is to enable engineers from the GWCL to replace some weak transmission pipelines from Kpong to Tema.
A statement issued and signed by the GWCL advised consumers to store enough water ahead of the shutdown to lessen the impact on their activities.
