Joseph Kofi Adda The Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources is going head to head with officials of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), denying reports of water rationing in parts of Ghana.
Due to the dry season, environmental degradation and pollution of water bodies by illegal miners. GWCL began rationing water late January in most parts of the country. These activities have derailed its efforts at extracting enough water for treatment, accounting for the inadequate supply of water to consumers.
According to Mr Stanley Martey, The Head of Communications at the GWCL. Only 40% of plant treatment capacity is being used in the western regions due to the water level in the River Pra being very low. The western region is apparently being effected the most by water rationing.
