Ghana Water Company discovers encroachment within catchment of Owabi Dam

Ghana Water Company Limited has discovered new encroachment within the catchment of the Owabi Dam in the Atwima Nwabiagya district of Ashanti.

A visit to Sene-Bokankye, which is one of the catchment communities of the Dam, revealed human activities such as illegal felling of trees, sand winning, farming as well as estate development which are at various stages of development, all having a negative impact on the Owabi Ramsar Site.

This came to light, during a working visit to the Owabi and Barekese areas by the Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Elizabeth Agyemang.
