THE ACCRA WEST REGION

Background

The Accra West Region covers the following Districts and Municipal Assemblies in Greater Accra, and a section of the Awutu Senya District of the Central Region.

The Region shares boundaries with the Accra East Region and Central Region of GWCL and is bordered on the South by the sea.

The Region stretches from the Kwame Nkrumah Circle and encompasses the western section of Accra along the coast to Kasoa and up to Ofankor, along the Accra – Nsawam road

The Region is made up of Eight (8) Districts, namely Accra-West, North West I, Odorkor, Sowutuom, Dansoman, North West II, Bortianor and Kasoa.

The Region include major Communities such as Korle-Bu, Chorkor, Russia, Kaneshie, Mamprobi, Bubuashie, Odorkor Dansoman, Darkuman, Kwashieman, Abeka Lapaz, Sowutuom, Mallam, McCarthy Hill, Weija, Bortianor and Kasoa.

 

Water Supply in Accra West Region

Water supply currently does not cover the entire Region.  This is because the existing water distribution network is currently not expanding fast enough to match-up with the rapid expansion of then new communities, especially in both the Kasoa and Anyaa – Ablekuma areas.

 

The current water supply coverage for the Region is about 55%, and the current total customer strength for the Region is about 96,000.  There are plans underway to embark on sustained pipelines extension projects with support from GWCL Head Office and from the Municipal Assemblies.

This will increase coverage, raise the customer strength and improve revenue generation.

 

Source of Supply

The major source of water is the Weija Treatment Plant with average production of 120,000m3/day.

Water demand within the Accra West Region is mostly for domestic purposes. There are however a number of low-scale business units, shops, hotels, restaurants and educational institutions scattered across the Region.  The few factories located within the Industrial Area are not major water consumers.
