The water level in the Akosombo Lake reached 238.57 feet or 72.716 metres on Friday, June 26, well below the minimum operating level of 240 feet or 73.15 metres required.

The level recorded is 7.25 feet less as registered at the same period last year, which saw the water level pegged at 245.82 or 74.925 metres.

According to data from the Volta River Authority’s (VRA) website, the maximum operating level is 84.73 metres (278ft), while the minimum operating point is 73.15m (240ft).

The maximum water level ever recorded, the VRA said, was on November 2, 1974, registering 84.25metres (276.41ft), as against the minimum reported on June 12, 1984 with 71.86m (235.76ft).

The highest annual inflow ever reported was 3000m3/s in 1963, while the lowest was 288m3/s in 1983

Currently, the VRA contributes 75 percent of the total generation in the country with its supply coming from hydro, thermal comprising Gas, Light Crude Oil and Distillate Fuel Oil fired plants, as well as Solar.

The Akosombo Lake enhances supply reliability, security and reduction of risk to inflow variability and fuel supply challenges.

But in recent times, it faced series of problems, including inadequate generation capacity reserve and lack of gas supply, and limiting thermal generation.

However, authorities of the VRA maintain they are taking mitigation actions, including carrying out more generation projects, and that they are planning to add about 1,000 MW of generation capacity over the next five years.

Most of sources of in-flowing water is from the upper part of the country. Thus the three northern regions which by contrast to what we experience down south currently is not receiving enough rainfall as at now.

That is the major reason why VRA still experience these difficulties. Let's pray it starts raining more frequently up north.

Hmmm... Its serious ooo.. After all those rains that lead to that devastating flooding that caused the nation so dearly on June 3rd, the Akosombo water level still sinking further... If all the water that caused the disaster had gone into the dam, like i guess by now it should be overflowing instead of sinking further...

For those of us who believe, its God that gives rain and thus we cant decide where it should rain unless He wills... We pray that its God's will to make it rain at areas that will  benefit the dam......
