The National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) announced that there will be water supply interruption in parts of Kampala on Thursday, April 8, starting 8am to 9pm.
According to NWSC, the interruption is to “our contractor, SOGEA-SATOM, to drill through the roof of the Naguru Reservoir and install the final section of the Bulk Transmission Pipeline from the new Katosi Water Treatment Plant.”
The areas that will be affected are Ntinda, Naguru, Bukoto, Naalya, Kulambiro, Kyebando, Kyanja, Kisaasi, Kiwatule, Najjera, Buwate, Kungu, Kimbejja, Kitikifumba, Bulindo, Komamboga and the surrounding areas.
Upon completion, the Katosi Water Project will add over 160 million liters of water per day to the Greater Kampala Metropolitan area.
“This will subsequently address the water supply gaps in the city,” NWSC said in a Wednesday statement.
“Customers are advised to store enough water and use it sparingly as the team works to improve service delivery in the city.”
At the end of March, the Corporation revealed that the Plant, which will serve over 7.5 million people – is at 95%.
