Weija Dam Spillways Opened

Four out of the five spillways of the Weija Dam have been opened. The opening of the spillways is a result of the rising levels of water in the dam.
Prior to the opening of the spillways, the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) and the Weija-Gbawe Municipal Assembly (WGMA) alerted residents along the spillways of the dam to move to higher grounds.
On a visit to the dam on Monday, 1st June 2020 by the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Weija-Gbawe Municipal Assembly, Hon Patrick Kwesi Brako Kumor and his team, the manager of the dam, Mr. Augustine Atibre, who met the team, said the level of the dam had risen so rapidly within forty-eight (48) hours.
Due to the sharp rise, the company opened four out of the five gates to allow the excess water spill out.
He said the spillways would be closed as soon as the water levels normalize.
Hon Patrick Kumor (MCE), asked the management of the GWCL to be mindful of residents living along the spillways.
He said, inasmuch as the dam needed to be operational, the welfare of the people should be taken into consideration in order not to displace too many people.
