THE ACCRA WEST REGION

Background

Accra West Region is one of the three operational regions of Ghana Water Company Limited in the Greater Accra Region, with the other two being Accra East and Tema Regions. Accra West Region stretches from the Kwame Nkrumah Circle and encompasses the western section of Accra, along the coast to Kasoa. It is bounded on the North-East by the main Accra-Kumasi highway, up to Sarpeiman.

The Region is made up of ten (10) Districts, namely Mamprobi, Dansoman, Odorkor, Kaneshie/Awudome, Darkuman/Gbawe, Sowutuom, Weija, Bortianor, Nyanyarno and Kasoa. The major communities in the Region include Korle-Bu, Kaneshie, Awudome Estates, Avenor, Mamprobi, Chorkor, Russia, Bubuashie, Odorkor Dansoman, Darkuman, Kwashieman, Abeka Lapaz, Sowutuom, Mallam, McCarthy Hill, Weija, Bortianor, Nyanyarno 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 not enough to match-up with the rapid expansion of the new communities, especially in the Kasoa, Anyaa and Ablekuma areas.

The supply coverage for the Region is just about 55%, and the current total customer strength for the Region is about 105,717.  There are plans underway to embark on sustained pipeline extension projects with support from GWCL Head Office.

The GAMA Project is also helping to expand the supply network and improve distribution in some low-income communities in the Region.

 

Source of Supply

The major source of water to the Region is from the Weija Treatment Plant with average production of 120,000 cubic meters/day and additional supply from the Nsawam Water Treatment Plant.

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.
