Volta River Authority prepares emergency plan for Akosombo and Kpong dams

The Volta River Authority is preparing an Emergency Preparedness Plan to identify, prevent and limit the effects of potential dam failures at Akosombo and Kpong.

The plan, when documented, is expected to form part of the broader Environmental Management Plan for the Akosombo and Kpong dams as required by the Environmental Protection Law in the country and international standard of operations, news reports from the region indicate.

Authority leaders said preparation of such a plan did not indicate that the country's two main dams were in any danger of failure but that the plan was required in accordance with best practices in the dam industry and the environmental protection laws as well.
