Water supply normalizes in Solwezi, Kasempa

General News Water supply normalizes in Solwezi, Kasempa

Water supply to residents in Solwezi and Kasempa districts has normalised after three days of critical a shortage.

The water shortage was caused by low voltage on the electricity power line supplying the North-western Water and Sewerage Company water intake plants.

North-western Water and Sewerage Company (NWWSC) Public Relations Officer Barbra Sianyabo explained that the company experienced power outages at its water intake plants in Solwezi and Kasempa districts.

Ms. Sianyabo said this resulted in intermittent supply of water to the two districts.

She said the company relied on a standby generator to pump water to residents in Solwezi in the last three days thereby forcing the company to restrict supply and distribution hours in most areas.

She has since assured residents that water supply to their homes will normalise as the company has started pumping the commodity into reservoir tanks following the rectification of low electricity supply by the Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation (ZESCO).

Ms. Sianyabo further appealed to residents in the two areas to be patient with the company as the pumping process takes time to normalise.

And a check in most residential areas in Solwezi revealed scores of residents with plastic containers queuing up at shallow wells to draw water for domestic use.
