Under the second phase, she said that they are constructing nine kilometers of transmission lines to Zuarungu in the Bolgatanga East District and its environs, and there is also an upgrade of the water connection to Bongo with 53 kilometers of distribution lines, an elevated reservoir at Zuarungu with a capacity of 400 cubic meters and the installation of water connections to 4,800 houses.

Rehabilitation of the Vea Water Treatment Plant

For the Vea Water Treatment Plant, the project coordinator said that work will begin in October 2021, after the opening of the Tono Plant.

She explained this decision was made because if the rehabilitation works of the said facility had started earlier then the people of Bolgatanga would have less water for the entirety of the project.
