Products and Services

The Region provides water service through a pipe network. The total length of pipe network is about 1,400 kilometres which only covers about 50% of the area.

Water Supply and Distribution

Currently, the Region is being supplied with water from three main sources as follows:-

  • Kpong Headworks (China Gezhouba)
  • Kpong New Works through Tema
  • Weija Headworks

Due to inadequate distribution network, about 50% of the populace is with our services. Major distribution improvement works is however being undertaken to improve water supply to Achimota, Ofankor and its environs that has been without water for the past twenty five (25) years.
