Bagre Dam spillage:  28 districts set to be affected
Listen to this article

The ongoing Bagre Dam spillage is expected to directly affect 28 districts across seven regions.

In a statement, the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) outlined the five Northern Regions, the Northern parts of the Oti Region, and the Afram Plains of the Eastern Region in this regard.

The Bagre dam is spilt from neighbouring Burkina Faso on an annual basis to prevent the dam’s banks from breaking.
“The downstream consequences of this spillage in Ghana include the potential overflow of the banks of the White and Black Volta,” NADMO said in a statement.

In this regard, NADMO has once more advised all communities that are situated along these rivers’ banks to relocate to safer areas that have been designated in the impacted areas.

NADMO will set a camp in Walewale in the North-East Region in cooperation with the Marine Police and the 48 Engineers Regiment of the Ghana Army.

The organization has previously struggled to develop sufficient relief supplies to care for all people who might be impacted by the spills.
