The rippling effect of the Bagre Dam spillage could cause the Ghana Water Company Limited in Tamale to pause working for a while.
Management explained that this move is meant to safeguard its equipment and installations.
The company further indicated that this aligns with the standard operating procedure as the dam intake has exceeded its required level.
“Any operation beyond the maximum operating feet puts the water facility in jeopardy, which could lead to the entire collapse and destruction of its equipment and installations,” the release added.
The GWCL announced and assured customers that when such action is taken by the company, it will return after the water has reached the required limit.
The Bagre dam spillage from Burkina Faso always affects some parts of the Northern Region every year
Unfortunately, most low-lying communities are counting their losses due to this spillage.
Currently, about 35 communities along the White Volta in the Bawku Municipality, Bawku West, Garu, Binduri, Nabdam and Talensi districts are the areas that bear the brunt mostly from this spillage.
