THE Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company (LWSC) has dispelled rumours that the water shortage which hit some parts of the city three days ago was caused by massive load shedding.
LWSC public relations manager Topsy Sikalinda said stories that where published in some sections of the media suggesting that the water shortage was due to power failure was not true.
Mr Sikalinda revealed that the company carried a normal maintenance operation in some parts of the city.
He said the company decided to carry out maintenance in order to improve the water challenges that some parts of the city were experiencing.
“We carried a normal maintenance exercise in some parts of the city and we finished the works at mid night and some members of the media were invited to be with us on the site we were working from,” he said.
Mr Sikalinda said the company would continue to up date the members of general public if there was any problem.
He said the water utility company had completed with the maintenance exercise and normal water supply had been restored in all the townships.
Mr Sikalinda said there was no sign that the situation was to get worse in few months to come and that the situation was likely to improve
