Abstract: The Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) in 1991 began to assist the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) to implement a rural water supply and sanitation project to improve health and the standard of living of the people in the Volta Region of Ghana. The Water Research Institute (WRI) has since the formulation of the Volta Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Project (VRWSSP) carried out data collection and monitoring assignments covering water resources in the Volta Region. In addition to the initial data collection, WRI was also contracted to initiate a research project to increase the understanding of the effects of land use changes on surface water resources. This very issue is important for the long-term use of small streams and springs for piped water systems and to develop appropriate methods for protection of their catchment areas.
