The Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources; MSWR, Cecilia Abena Dapaah on Tuesday, February 21, 2022, visited the Nsawam Water Treatment Plant in the Eastern Region.

The purpose of her visit was to inspect the Densu River which serves as the raw water source for the Nsawam Water Treatment Plant and to further investigate ongoing human activities in the buffer zones.

Ms Dapaah was accompanied by officials of the Ministry and Staff of the GWCL, including the Managing Director of Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), Ing. Dr. Clifford Abdallah Braimah.

The Sector Minister was taken on a tour of the plant where she was briefed on the current levels of the raw water source.

Due to the dry season, the Densu River had gone down below the minimum abstraction level. The minimum abstraction level of the plant is 2.3 meters but as at February 13, 2022, the level was at 1.3 meters, as a result the plant had to be shut down for lack of water. With recent rains upstream, water levels had increased to 2.3 meters, which was enough for operational activities of the plant.
