MUDOR TREATMENT PLANT

How It Works

Accra’s Central Business District and portions of Labone and Osu and ministries are served by a Sewer Network System. In the early 2000s the Mudor Waste Water Treatment Plant was commissioned to treat this waste which was pumped from five pumping stations (Ministries, Osu/ Labonie, State house, Korlebu and the Central Accra pumping stations). A few years after commissioning the plant became dysfunctional.
Sewage Systems together with its Chinese contractors have rehabilitated the plant. Prior to the rehabilitation works on the plant, the contents of the sewer system were pumped out to sea via an outfall pipe.
As a result of the expansion of the sewer network under the Accra Sewerage improvement project Sewerage Systems Ghana Limited has expanded the capacity of the plant from 16,000m3/d to 18,000 m3.
