Oforikrom (Ash), Oct
05, GNA – A team of engineers of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) is
working around the clock to fix the water crisis that has hit parts of the
Oforikrom Municipality.

Areas including
Susuanso, Bomso, Kentinkrono, Ayeduase and Kotei-Deduako have been struggling
with recurring water shortage for some time now.

Mr. Sampson Ampah, the
Ashanti Regional Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Company, told
journalists in Oforikrom, that everything was being done to restore
uninterrupted water flow to the affected places.

The engineers were
working to repair damaged pillars that anchored the water pipelines at Bomso
and Susuanso.

These pillars got
destroyed by heavy rainfall, making it difficult to supply water to the
residents.

Mr. Ampah said as part
of contingency measures to bring some relief to the people, the company had
deployed water tanks.

“We are sorry for the
inconvenience this development has brought to our valued customers”, he said,
adding that, the technical people were working hard to fix things.

He advised the
residents to refrain from dumping refuse into the Susuan River and other water
bodies in the municipality.

“Such practices tend
to block the waterways, putting undue pressure on the pillars anchoring the
GWCL’s pipelines, which eventually disrupts the water supply system.”
