Sanitation and Water Resources Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, has disclosed that up to about 45 per cent of revenue from treated water is lost due to non-payment of bills, illegal connections and physical  losses. According to the minister, the figure is a 9 per cent improvement from the 54 per cent non-revenue on water that was recorded in 2017. The minister said that aside from non-revenue water, other key challenges in the water sector of Ghana include mining in river bodies and the buffer areas, intermittent power supply, and encroachment on water infrastructure.
