Residents of Beposo cry for potable water

The chiefs and people of Beposo in the Sekyere Central District, have appealed to the Ghana Water Company (GWC) to restore water supply to the community.

Water supply to the community, which is the district capital, has been erratic for some time now due to the inability of the GWC Bolster Station at Asante Mampong, to pump adequate water to the area.

Currently, the inhabitants get water supply once every month and this even lasts for a few minutes, making it difficult for the majority of them to get water for their daily activities.

The residents told the Ghana News Agency that, the situation was terrible especially during the outbreak of the coronavirus and the need to wash their hands regularly as part of measures to prevent further spread of the virus in the country.

The Ghana News Agency investigations at the GWC Bolster Station at Asante Mampong indicated that the pumping machines are now very weak and that had forced the company to ration water supply to the various catchment areas.

A source at the Bolster station told the GNA that, the problem had come about as a result of technical problems facing the electricity transformer at the station.

He said the station required a new transformer to help improve water supply in the area.
