On Monday the 17th of October, 2016 the people of Kpando in the Volta Region witnessed an inauguration of a newly completed water supply expansion project.
The original water system was based on underground systems using boreholes and its maximum production capacity was 130,000 gallons a day which was unable to meet the current demands.
However, the new system, which will pump 1.5 million gallons a day, draws water from the Volta Lake at Tokor to the treatment plant at Kpando. The project’s life span extends to 2025. It was built at the cost of about $13 million and will serve Kpando, Sovie, Anfoega, Nkonya Ahenkro, and other surrounding communities. To ensure effective distribution of the volume of water a day, 110 km of pipe lines has been laid to various communities while 50 stand pipes has been constructed. The Ghana Water Company is managing the project.
Health officials have warned of an imminent epidemic if nothing drastic is done immediately. But why would all these happening now if you know your own source of water is treated by Tovila Water Solutions.
More than 40% of Ghana’s 25 million people lack access to save water. Tovila Water Solutions could provide reliable, affordable and save water to communities in need.
This has become necessary as settlements spread within the area, making it difficult to adequately provide potable water to the target population.
“For us to be able to serve our people adequately, we are liaising with the assembly to talk to the GWCL to give us bulk water so that we can distribute and pay outright,” the Board Chairman of the scheme, Mr. Benjamin Banitsi, told the Daily Graphic.
He was speaking at a public hearing to account to the people on the activities of the scheme in the area at Abokobi.
The annual public hearing created the platform for the scheme to educate the people on their rights and responsibility as well as the activities of the scheme over the year.
Mr. Banitsi said because of the increasing population of the area, the demand for water had outstripped supply, “and that is why we are liaising with the GWCL to complement what we are doing here.”
He said from January 2014 to December 2015, the scheme connected water to 202 houses to bring the total connection to 1,468.
Irregular power supply
Mr. Banitsi explained that irregular power supply from the national grid had led to high cost of operation as the scheme was compelled to buy diesel to power its generator to pump water.
Giving statistics, he said during the year under review, the scheme spent GH¢47,892.00 on diesel alone to be able to pump water continuously
He thanked the people in the area for their patience and assured that the scheme was committed to providing potable water to them.
Mr. Banitsi said, the scheme was not only concentrating on the provision of potable water.
The System Manager of the scheme, Mr. Jerry Yao Ayimah, who presented the annual report at the forum, said one major challenge to the provision of potable water apart from the high cost of electricity was damage to pipelines by estate developers.
He said the only way out of the situation was to relocate pipelines from private plots to avoid interruption of water supply as a result of the damages.
Over the past 20 years, research has been done by senior scientist across the world on natural resources management and aquatic system management in particular.
In Ghana alone, more than 1.4 million acres of grasslands were converted to cropland, industrial, and mining sites. Within this landscape are surface waters that include lakes and rivers between 2008 and 2015
However, lot of things come into play, not just land use. Accra alone, goes through cycles of drought, drainage system and flooding that affect water availability and aquatic production. This can have a more dramatic effect than climate change. The “clean water” as said provided to citizen cannot be consume and they therefore sustain on processed water only.
In some part of the world, they hope to use long-term data from water quality assessments to evaluate relationships between beneficial water uses and land use patterns. Those beneficial water uses include fish and wildlife propagation, recreation and stock watering sources, in addition to more specific uses such as domestic water supply.
