Ghana Water Limited denies procuring ‘One Drop’ water treatment product

The Ghana Water Limited (GWL) has dismissed reports of importing a new water treatment product called ‘One Drop’.

The claim was made by Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam Nartey George,

Sam George alleged that the government, together with GWCL, has procured a water treatment product, ‘One Drop’, for use by the company instead of traditional chlorine.

However, the GWCL in a statement issued on February 2, 2023 said, “Per GWL’s Standard Operating Procedures, any decision regarding the adoption of new water treatment technologies or products is made through a comprehensive evaluation process, in consultation with relevant stakeholders and regulatory agencies like the Food and Drugs Authority, Ghana Standards Authority, the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission and communicated transparently to the public.”

It further indicated that “By GWL’s internal procedures, management reserves the right to act on a positive evaluation report by writing to either the Public Procurement Agency (PPA) for sole sourcing or to advertise for competitive tendering processes. No contract has been awarded by GWL for the supply of the “One Drop” disinfectant for water treatment.”

The company therefore denied the allegation, stating that it currently uses chlorine-based disinfectants for water treatment, including Chlorine Gas, Calcium Hypochlorite granules, and Chlorine Tablets.

GWL called on all stakeholders, including the MP, to refrain from disseminating rumors against the company.
