He said the AccraWest Region of GWCL started operations in Amasaman in September, 2018 with as few as 20 kilometers of pipelines and a customer strength as minimal as 21.
Mr Boateng said with proper and quality service delivery, it has expanded its distribution network to 176,937km, covering the major communities in the municipality and customer base increase of over 4,000.
The Accra West Regional Commercial Manager, Mr Charles Adza-Yaw giving account on some interventions GWCL introduced to help the municipality said, the district benefited from some three projects namely; the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area Water and Sanitation Project, the Water Works Programme and the Water for Life Projects.
He said these projects were focused on low income groups across the district providing household connections at very affordable rate.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr Clement Wilkinson, in a speech read on his behalf commended GWCL for their effort and service towards the municipality and assured of the assembly’s continuous support to ensure residents enjoyed social amenities that would make lives comfortable for them.
He also appealed to the people to be judicious in the use of water and ensure that they seek permit for any developmental project, pay their bills on time and report people who do illegal connections to the company.
