The Volta River Authority is undertaking controlled spillage at the Akosombo and Kpong Dams effective today, September 15, 2023.

According to the Deputy Chief Executive, E&O, Ing. Edward Obeng-Kenzo, "The decision to spill follows the observed consistent rise in the lake level due to high inflows."

He added that, VRA is fully aware of the heavy rains being experienced across the country leading to some levels of flooding and high water levels in some communities. He said, it is for this reason VRA is undertaking this controlled spillage to mitigate any adverse impacts.
