Source of water supply to the region

Apart from Ada District which has its own source of water supply from the Keseve treatment Plant, all the other 8 districts receive a greater proportion of its water from the Kpong Head Works and a little from the Teshie Nungua Desalination plant.

 

Kpong Treatment Plant

The High-Lift Pumping Station of the New Works from Kpong delivers the treated water to the Tema Terminal Reservoir.

From the Tema Terminal Reservoir the water is pumped from the Tema Booster Station located at Mile 18, through a 22.5 km long, 800 mm dia. (32”) steel main round parallel to the Accra-Tema Motorway, to the Accra Terminal Reservoir, located at Okponglo (South of Legon).

The Tema Booster has a capacity of about 99,000 m3/day (22 MGD) when operated with three units in series, but 1995 average flow was only 80,000 m3/day.

 

Teshie Nungua Desalination

Another source of water supply to the region is the Teshie Nungua Desalination Project which is being implemented through a Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (BOOT) arrangement by Befesa Aqua of Spain which serves the Sakumono and Baatsona communities in the Tema region.

 

The Tema region is noted for its innovation abilities and is currently piloting the e- billing system to be used by GWCL for future billings in the country.
