Weija dam to spill water soon; residents warned
According to the company, the spillage has been necessitated by the onset of the rains which have kept the level of the dam rising.
“Management is thus informing individuals, institutions, organisations and companies with properties on the downstream side of the Dam to note that the opening of the spillway gates may cause massive flooding along the lower course of the Densu River and it is essential for property owners and residents in the area to take immediate precautionary measures to protect life and property,” a statement from the company said.The GWCL said apart from Weija, communities such as Tetegu, Oblogo, Pambros Salt, Lower McCarthy Hill, Bojo Beach, Ada Kopey and surrounding ones will also be affected. It said that enough measures have been put in place to “enable good flow of excess water”. The company however stressed that it “cannot guarantee the safety of people living in such areas”.
“It is therefore better and safer to heed to this precautionary information to safeguard lives and property,” GWCL added.
