Water quality survey Ghana


This project was conducted in collaboration with Royal Haskoning and aimed to carry out a study to assess the impact of a dam and hydroelectric plant in Ghana (Volta Lake) on water quality and sediment quality studies. A monitoring plan has been prepared and monitoring conducted in the reservoir and river downstream. Sampling and analysis equipment have been purchased and water and sediment samples were taken along with local people. These people were trained during the project and trained for future sampling and analysis. Monitoring results have been evaluated and discussed and a future monitoring plan has been developed to continue monitoring in future.
