28 districts to be affected by Bagre Dam spillage

The National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) has announced that the ongoing Bagre Dam spillage is expected to directly affect 28 districts across seven regions.

The spillage would affect the five Northern Regions, the northern parts of the Oti Region, and the Afram Plains of the Eastern Region, according to NADMO.

The Bagre dam is spilled from neighbouring Burkina Faso on an annual basis to prevent the dam’s banks from breaking.

“The consequences of this spillage downstream in Ghana is the possible overflow of the banks of the White and Black Volta,” NADMO noted in the statement.

NADMO has once again urged all communities along the banks of these rivers to relocate to higher ground and Safe Havens identified in the affected regions.

NADMO will set up camp in Walewale, North-East Region, in collaboration with the Marine Police and the Ghana Army’s 48 Engineers Regiment.

In the past, the organisation has struggled to provide adequate relief items to all people who may be affected by the spillage.
