The project executed between June 2011 and May this year was funded by the Chinese EXIM Bank at the cost of 273 million U.S. dollars as phase one of the Water Supply Expansion Project to help bridge the existing supply gap to the capital and its surroundings.
Queues of yellow gallons and the site of people, young and old especially females crisscrossing the city of Accra in search of water was the reality of Ghana’s capital with a 60 percent deficit in water supply.
“In times past we had challenges within Accra-Tema Metropolis in terms of water and we all know there was a big gap between demand and supply; 60 million gallons of water in terms of the difference,” Stanley Martey, Communications Manager for GWCL told journalists on tour of the brand new facility on Wednesday.
He added, “Now with this project on board and other projects that have come on board we’ve been able to bridge the gap to the extent that now we have exceeded the demand by over 2 million gallons of water.” Enditem
