ACCRA, (Xinhua) --
Water supply in Ghana’s capital and other parts
of the country has been hit by effects of ongoing drought in the
country, state-run water utility company, Ghana Water Company
Limited (GWCL) has told consumers.
In a release late
Thursday, the company explained that it has been experiencing
some challenges with water supply in Accra and most parts of the
country since the beginning of the dry season.
The dry season in
Ghana starts from November to the end of April with attendant
reduction in volumes of water in water basins, bush fires and
lower generation levels of hydro-electric power.
“We are sorry to
inform the consuming public that, the situation has led to
intermittent water supply in most Cities and Towns in the
country,” added the release signed by Stanley Martey, Head of
Communications for GWCL.
