In a statement signed by its Chief Manager, PR, and Communication, Stanley Martey, it said "There are some leakages also within the supply area, causing GWCL to lose several volumes of water daily and consequently having a serious impact on the volumes available for consumption"

The statement further added that the Engineers will also take advantage of the shutdown to install some electromagnetic meters at the Weija Treatment Plant which will help in the company's drive to reduce non-revenue water.
