The Ghana Water Company Limited(GWCL) has disclosed the timeline for the free water supply mentioned in the budget review…
The free supply of water is to be rolled out for 3 months, ending in September, meaning July is included even though it was announced on the 23rd of July.
Landlords as well as those who sell water have been entreated to allow tenants use water for free for the months of July, August and September.
“All metered stand-pipes on category 643 shall be used to serve citizens for free. Vendors are expected to still control the services to the public as usual. This is to ensure the prudent use of water.”
Tho the water is to be free, people who still owes the GWCL have been exempted from the free water and are expected to report to GWCL officers to negotiate how they’ll pay their outstanding bills.
“Customers in arrears must negotiate with the District Offices and or Regional Offices for flexible terms of payment to enable them settle their arrears, then they can be reconnected to enable them enjoy the free water services.”
This comes after the President gave free water and electricity supply in April after the lockdown was implemented and the hardships it brought.
