Kampala: They say water is life!
As such concerned citizens, residents and the business community in Metropolitan Kampala, you have been warned to use all the water you have sparingly, because National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) has announced a shut down at its pump station in Gaba, Mukono and Wakiso for routine maintenance.
The shut down is for a scheduled maintenance exercise that will enable NSWC technicians to service and repair machines at their main station in Gaba and substations around various parts of Greater Kampala like Mukono and Wakiso, so as to spur service delivery.
All citizens are thus advised to utilise water harvesting methods and or spare the little they have in their tanks, because the maintenance process and resumption of service is likely to take a long time. Below is a statement released by NWSC’s media department on Monday October 14, 2019 about the matter, which spells a health crisis that’s looming upon the city;
