The State of Daboase Water Treatment Plant - Western Region

The Daboase Water Plant is the major treatment plant that supply portable water to the people of Sekondi-Takoradi and its environs. The plant gets its source from the River Pra at Daboase and has the capacity of producing 6 million gallons of water per day (MGD).

Due to illegal mining (Galamsey) activities on the River Pra, the Treatment Plant does not get raw water from the Pra anymore except during the raining season. The raw water is now taking from Bosomase, a community close to Daboase. The Plant now produces only 3.5MGD which is not sufficient for the Twin City looking at their present population. The beneficiary communities are now facing consistent water shortages.

 A recent working visit to the site by the Deputy Minister of Water Resources, works and Housing Samuel Yaw Adusei observed that Chemicals like mercury and cyanide used for the Galamsey operations has increased the cost of production of treated water by the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) for the people of Sekondi-Takoradi.

For instance, previously the Company was using 30 bags of alum to produce 6Million gallons per day (MDG) but now the 3.5MGD uses 75 bags of alum.

The Ministry is to put in place a tasked force which consists of the Regional and District security team to help mitigate the problem.
