ON-GOING PROJECTS

Kumawu, Kwahu Ridge, Konongo Water Supply Projects

These three separate projects entail the rehabilitation and expansion of the water supply systems at Kumawu, Konongo and the Kwahu Ridge.

The Kumawu Water Project involves the construction of an intake pumping station, a new 3.5 million gallon per day water treatment plant, storage reservoirs, transmission and distribution mains and booster stations. The project will benefit Kumawu, Besoro, Abotanso and settlements along the transmission pipelines.

The Konongo Project involves the construction of a weir and two clarifiers, the rehabilitation and expansion of the existing 295,000 gallons per day water treatment plant, storage reservoirs, transmission and distribution mains and booster stations. The total plant capacity after rehabilitation and expansion works will be 3.6 million gallons a day and this is estimated to serve about 190,000 inhabitants of Konongo, Agogo, Odumase, Domeabra, Hwidiem and others.

Under the Kwahu Ridge project, a new intake with electro-mechanical equipment will be constructed at Asempaneye and the existing Kotoso Water Treatment Plant will also be rehabilitated and expanded from 1 million gallons a day to 3.5 million gallons a day. Other works include rehabilitation of the Nkawkaw borehole system, distribution improvement on the Kwahu Ridge and within Nkawkaw and development of borehole systems and storages at Abene, Suminakese, Akwasiho, Hweehwee and Afi. Other beneficiary communities include Abetifi, Asakraka, Aduamoa, Atibie, Bepong, Bokuruwa, Tafo, Mpraeso, Nkwatia, Nteso, Obo, Obomeng, Pepease, Tweneduase and Kotoso. The contract has been assigned to Messrs Tahal Consulting Engineers.

 

Subsequent Year Investment Programme under the Urban Water Project

As a follow up to the First Year Investment Programme, a Subsequent Year Investment Programme (SYIP) is being undertaken to improve, on a prioritised basis, the physical conditions and capacities of twenty urban water systems in the country. These systems include those in Agona, New Edubiase, Berekum, Breman Asikuma, Dunkwa Offin, Akim Ofoase, Asamankese, Akim Oda and Suhum.  Others are the sytems in Peki, Nkonya Ahenkro, Kpando, Sovie Digbe, Anfoega, Prestea, Bogoso, Elubo, Axim, Aboso, Tamale, Bawku, Navrongo, Wa and Accra.

With the exception of Peki and Tamale systems which entail distribution improvement and extension works, all the SYIP systems involve source improvement and development, provision of storage, transmission and distribution pipelines. In addition, the groundwater-based systems will be upgraded and in some cases provided with new boreholes.

Furthermore, World Bank and the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) have contributed 5 million and 7 million dollars respectively into a Repair and Replacement Fund for the implementation of other improvement works. The NDF contribution is meant to support rehabilitation of water supply dams and weirs, improve dam safety and reliability of water sources as well as other dam related activities and studies. Specific dams and weirs that are to be covered under this programme include the Abesim, Tanoso, Mampong, Koforidua, Hohoe Weirs, as well as the Axim, Inchaban, Brimsu, Kwanyaku, Tafo, Weija, Owabi, Barekese, Damongo and Vea Dams.  The project, estimated to cost GH¢11,931,616.95, is ongoing.

Wa Water Supply Project

The project, estimated to cost 39.40 euros, entails the construction of a 3.3 million gallons daily treatment plant with an intake on the Black Volta. The project also involves the construction of storage tanks, 35 kilometre long transmission lines, 55 distribution lines and the provision of a dedicated electricity source.

Communities to benefit under the project include Wa Metropolitan Area, University for Development Studies Campus, Jamgoasi, Kong, Guo, Pase, Dorimon, Boro, Siriyiri, Bamaho, Boli, Buro, Chaira, Kolongo and Kperisi.  The project is being undertaken by Kolon Engineering of Korea and it is expected to be completed in June 2016.

Sekyere Hemang-Sekondi/Takoradi-Aboadze Thermal Plant Water Interconnection Project

Under the project, the Sekyere-Hemang Treatment Plant will be interconnected with the Inchaban Headworks in Sekondi-Takoradi from where treated water will be transmitted to Aboadze. After completion, the project will allow the transfer of 2.2 million gallons of water a day from Sekyere Hemang Treatment Plant to Sekondi-Takoradi and the Aboadze Thermal Plant to help solve the water problem at the Thermal Plant and the Metropolis as a whole.

 

Upper East Water Supply Project

The project involves the construction of a water intake, treatment plant, a pumping station and a water reservoir. Other works to be undertaken are the construction of transmission mains and rehabilitation of the existing water treatment plant at Vea. The raw water source for the project is the Tono Irrigation Reservoir which is capable of meeting future demand beyond 2030. When completed, the project will add 2 million gallons of water daily to the supply system for the benefit of Bolgatanga, Zuarungu, Navrongo, Paga and Bongo areas in the Upper East Region. The project is being implemented with funding from ORIO of Netherlands.

 

INVESTMENT REQUIREMENT FOR THE URBAN WATER SECTOR

At present, the sources of sector funding for development projects are primarily from external support agencies amounting to about $35 million per year, Government’s annual budgetary votes of about $2 million a year and internally generated funds mainly through water sales totalling about $3 million a year.

The average inflows from these sources over the past years amount to just about 40% of the level required to achieve the Millennium Development Goal of 85% coverage. Analysis, however, indicates that if the desired coverage levels are to be achieved over time, about US$100 million per year has to be invested in sector infrastructure development.

In a Strategic Investment Plan prepared to allow for systematic development of all urban water supply systems in the country, it is estimated that about $2billion will have to be invested in water production to help increase current urban coverage to 100% country-wide by 2025.
