The Management of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) has begun a series of public education to sensitize the public to the imminent spillage of the Bagre Dam in Burkina Faso this year (2020)

Mr. Eric Nana Agyemang- Prempeh, the Director General of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), yesterday called on people living near the banks of the black and white Volta Rivers to move to higher grounds.

Mr Eric Nana Agyemang-Prempeh made this call when he and his officers visited the confluence of the two dams, Bagre and Kupeinga at Galaka in Sapelliga in the Bawku West District of the Upper East Region.

He indicated that they have been receiving daily updates from the Burkinabe authorities and that the dam is due for spillage anytime soon.

According to NADMO, the spillage is due to the rate of rising water levels of the two dams.

The spillover of the Bagre Dam in neighbouring Burkina Faso and Kupeinga in Togo are intensifying.

Mr Eric Nana Agyemang-Prempeh said it was important the spillover may cover about two miles from the banks of the rivers and residents within that zone may be affected.

He stressed that the construction of the Kpawlugu multipurpose dam when completed would solve about 70% of the problems.

He also noted that alot has been done on drainage by the ministry of works and housing and, ministry of sanitation and water resources by desilting the volta river which will help when the Bagre dam is spilt.
