Ghana Regulator Orders Water Company to Keep Accra Plant Open

Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Ghana’s utilities regulator suspended the nation’s water company from shutting down a water treatment plant next week for maintenance, which would have reduced the supply to Accra, the capital, by almost half.

The Public Utilities Regulatory Commission ordered Ghana Water Co. to suspend the shutdown of Kpong water plant Feb. 24 to Feb. 28, state-owned Ghana News Agency said.

The company must provide the regulator with a plan that includes deadlines for maintenance and the impact on users before going forward with work on the Weija and Kpong plants.
