Accra Stormwater and Sewer System

Accra, Ghana

One of the most exciting and vibrant regions in Ghana, Accra attracts thousands of new tourists and residents each year and has rapidly grown to more than 2 million people.

Such a high population generates a large amount of trash, which was choking the city’s drainage system. Coupled with perennial flooding from the rainy season, the area was plagued with property damage and loss of life. Flooding in the Odaw Basin impacted the Korle Lagoon to create “one of the most polluted bodies of water on earth,” according to PBS. To mitigate these issues, the Ghanaian Parliament approved the program, a design-build project developed and implemented by Conti.

 

Conti extensively coordinated to secure financing for this project and performed all the planning, feasibility studies, cost estimating, engineering, and land surveying and construction services. The team created an environmental and social impact assessment and relocation action plan and conducted waste management studies to establish a legitimate waste disposal method.

 

Finally, Conti began dredging the Korle Lagoon to clear the bottleneck of refuse and silt. The team’s equipment was self-financed and shipped overseas to satisfy Unites States content requirements, performing the full life cycle of construction services.

Conti’s work with the Ghanaian government increased community waste management education to help improve the country’s overall quality of life.
