The Ministry of Water Resources Works and Housing has constituted a committee to review the Management contract between Ghana Water Company Limited, GWCL, and Aqua Vitens Rand Limited, AVRL.  

The review exercise was prompted by the problems hindering water delivery and the implementation of the eighty million-dollar World Bank sponsored water project between GWCL and AVRL.

The sector Minister, Albert Abongo, who dropped the hint said the findings of the committee would inform government about the steps to take, to improve the serious challenges with water delivery, especially in the urban areas, where the utility is critical for industrial growth and improved standard of living.

He said the misunderstanding between the AVRL and the GWCL about their respective responsibilities in regard to water operations, Revenue Management and Maintenance of systems is having a debilitating effect on water.  Mr, Abongo said government is not pleased with the performance of the expatriate management.
