Aqua Vitens promises to solve Accra’s water problem
The Management of Aqua Vitens Rand Limited (AVRL), operator of the urban water system on behalf of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), on Friday said it was making efforts to improve the water situation in Accra.
A statement signed by Mr. Stanley Martey, External Communications Manager, said the efforts were with particular reference to hard hit areas such as Adenta, Teshie and Burma Camp.
It said measures being undertaken are that all hydrants or tanker filling points would be shut down, all huge commercial reservoirs within the affected communities would be shut down, and all connections on dedicated mains would be disconnected.
The statement said the objective was to allow water to flow by gravity to homes within the communities.
“This will enable the distribution team of AVRL to assess the extent of flow and allow customers to receive water directly from the supply system, it added.
The management said it would appreciate feedback from customers in the affected areas via its Toll free lines, 0800 40 000 for Vodafone lines only, and 021 211260 for other networks.
“All are kindly urged to cooperate with AVRL and GWCL to serve you better,” it added.
