The National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) said there will be water supply interruptions for 3 days in some parts of Kampala to pave way for completion of the final section of the Katosi Water Project.
The interruption will be happening from 6.30am to 6.30pm from Monday to Wednesday.
“The management of National Water and Sewerage Corporation wishes to inform its esteemed customers in parts of Ntinda, Naguru, Bukoto, Naalya, Kulambiro, Kyebando, Kyanja, Kisaasi, Kiwatule, Najeera, Buwate, Kungu, Kimbejja, Komamboga and the surrounding areas that there will be interruptions in normal water supply from Monday 26th October 2020 to Wednesday 28th October 2020,” reads an official statement.
“This is to allow our contractor SOGEA-SATOM to lay the final section of the Katosi Water Works Bulk Transmission pipeline along Uganda Funeral Services-Naguru water reservoir stretch.”
NWSC says water supply will always be restored after the daily works throughout the 3 days.
The Katosi Water Project is expected to add over 160 million liters of water per day to the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Service area.
“This will subsequently address the water supply gaps in the city,” officials say. People residing or working from these areas have been advised to store enough water and use it sparingly.
