Residents of Ho Municipality and surrounding communities can now have a sigh of relief as water supply has been restored, following the completion of works on the main transmission lines from Kpeve by the Ghana Water Company Limited.
Water supply was abruptly cut off to Ho and its environs on August 18, 2019, when the main transmission pipeline from Kpeve Treatment Plant developed faults making it unable to transmit water through.
In a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of Ghana Water Company Limited, Mr. Stanley Martey stated that “the challenge with the water situation is completed and water production and pumping has begun”.
Residents in Ho Municipality have been without potable water for past 10 days, as a result of the damage caused to the main pipeline that conveys water from the production point at Kpeve.
The Ghana Water Company Limited had explained that the damage was occasioned by the washing away of two concrete pillars holding the pipeline at river Tsawe near Akrofu.
Many residents had to resort to fetching water from almost dried up streams, wells and boreholes that are constantly running out because of the pressure on them since the Municipality did not have a tanker system.
