The Ghana Water Company Limited has announced that they will soon begin a house-to-house audit throughout the nation in order to cut losses and enhance the provision of potable water to Ghanaians.
Speaking to the press, Water and Sanitation Minister Cecilia Abena Dapaah disclosed that there will soon be an unannounced date for the auditing of various houses connected to the water supply chain.
She explained that those found culpable will be dealt with according to law.
According to her, they will not leave out houses that have signage of ‘beware of wild dogs’ to deter from auditing them.
“We will not be afraid of those who put beware of wild dogs on their doors, we will go in there find out just a to crosscheck. I know most Ghanaians are honest but the bad nut among us must be exposed. Even the date is a secret date we don’t want people to look at the schedule and disconnect and connect when we are off.”
She believes that this effort will help address the revenue losses and improve the supply of water.
“It will be a constant and sustainable way of making sure we reduce our non-revenue losses with regard to illegal connections and deny other citizens water.”
