Ghana Water Company shuts down desalination plant


In its bid to resolve the challenges with the Accra Desalination Plant that serves Teshie, Nungua and surrounding communities, the Management of GWCL took a decision to put the plant out of operation beginning 1st January, 2018.

Management has as a result made alternative arrangements to serve the supply area from the Accra and Tema Booster Stations.

Hence, from the 1st of January, 2018, Teshie, Nungua and surrounding communities, served by the Desalination Plant, will be served on Wednesdays and on weekends (Fridays to Sundays) from the alternative sources mentioned above.

Affected Areas include, Teshie, Nungua, Sakumuno. Laashibi, Communities 16, 17, and 18, Adogorno, Baatsonaa, Coastal Estates, Greda Estates, Regimanuel Estates, all on the Spintex Road, and surrounding Communities.

In recent times, the GWCL has encountered some challenges with the Management of the Plant, as a result, water flow to the service area has been erratic. Management is taking the right steps in resolving the issues and will request of customers and the general public to bear with the company in these times.

Management of GWCL regrets any inconvenience that this arrangement may cause to our cherished customers. It’s for a good purpose. We are very grateful and appreciate the support of all.
