It has emerged that, the current accute water shortage that has hit the Ho muncipality was caused by the explosion of an electricity transformer serving the Ghana Water treatment plant at Kpeve in the South Dayi district.
The incident which occurred few days ago has caused a halt in the treatment and supply of potable water to many areas, including the Ho Municipality.
A notice from the utility provider, GWCL earlier in the week on the incident, fell short of any timeline for the possible replacement of the burnt transformer for supply of water to be restored.
This, has left many residents stranded, as they struggle for water to undertake their daily chores.
Voltaonlinegh.com checks on Thursday, however revealed that, engineers of GWCL and the Power Distribution Services (PDS) were installing a new transformer to restore power supply to the treatment plant as soon as possible.
A source at GWCL told Voltaonlinegh.com that, the power challenge affected the operations in the last few days but assured that, they were working around the clock to begin water production as soon as the installation of the new transformer was completed.
