Weija Dam Shut Down

MANAGEMENT OF Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has announced that there would be interruption in water supply to the western and central parts of Accra from Friday, 16 May to Saturday, 17May, 2014.

This is as a result of a planned shutdown of the Weija Treatment plant, the company has stated.
