Teshie Nungua Water Desalination Project

Teshie-Nungua, Accra

The Teshie-Nungua Desalination Water Project, the first ever project of its kind in West Africa, has been completed and commissioned by President Mahama.
It currently supplies 13.2 million gallons of water per day to about half a million people in the following areas - Teshie, Nungua, the Teshie Military barracks, Batsoona, Sakumono and parts of La-Dadekotopon.

Other Important Water Projects:

  1. KPONG WATER SUPPLY EXPANSION PROJECT PHASE 1
  2. KPONG INTAKE REHABILITATION PROJECT
  3. ACCRA-TEMA METROPOLITAN AREA (ATMA) WATER SUPPLY PROJECT
  4. TESHIE-NUNGUA DESALINATION WATER PROJECT

These four projects have added 65.7 million gallons of water per day to the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA) water supply system. With the previous shortfall of 63 million gallons per day, this has ensured that supply outstrips demand by 2.7 million gallons. The US$ 48 million project will ensure the replacement of weak and over aged pipelines in Accra and Tema and also the laying of new pipelines to new settlements in GAMA . It will also allow utilisation of water from all the water supply expansion projects completed so far.
