Ghana: Kumasi city’s unplanned boom is destroying two rivers – sewage, heavy metals and chemical pollution detected

Retrieved on: 
Wednesday, February 7, 2024

Kumasi, Ghana’s second largest city, has a high level of encroachment and this has led to the pollution of water bodies.

Key Points: 
  • Kumasi, Ghana’s second largest city, has a high level of encroachment and this has led to the pollution of water bodies.
  • As scholars of urban planning and chemistry, we conducted a study in the greater Kumasi metropolis to understand the extent of encroachment and pollution of two rivers, Subin and Wiwi.
  • We also wanted to know more about the extent of water pollution, land-use dynamics and water resources regulations, and how they influence the quality of water resources.
  • We recommend that the city authorities monitor what is happening better and do more to prevent degradation of Kumasi’s water bodies.

Effects of land use on the quality of water bodies

  • Also, the intense pressure of urbanisation on the available land has resulted in a high level of encroachment in wetlands.
  • As a result of limited investment in sewage plants, most of the city’s untreated waste water is discharged into the surface water bodies.
  • This has implications for the quality and sustainability of these water bodies.
  • During heavy rains, the refuse runs off into the water, affecting water quality and flow.
  • The industrial activities along the water bodies include washing bays, auto-mechanical activities, welding and wood processing.

Time for Kumasi to wake up

  • Urban growth can coexist with natural resources if human activities located near water bodies don’t threaten their quality and continued existence.
  • Our study shows that Kumasi has developed with little regard for its natural assets.
  • City authorities ought to put in place measures to clean the water bodies and convert buffer areas into parks and green spaces.
  • Ecologically sensitive areas that are 100 feet away from wetlands should be compulsorily acquired as natural assets for the public interest.
