DOREEN NAWA, Lusaka
LUSAKA Water and Sewerage Company says Lusaka will experience erratic water supply until September following the advancement of the Lusaka Water Supply, Sanitation
and Drainage (LWSSD) project.
The US$355 million project funded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation of the United States of America is being administered on behalf of Government by the Millennium Challenge Account Zambia (MCAZ).
Speaking in an interview, LWSC public relations manager Nshamba Muzungu said Lusaka will experience more frequent erratic water supply because of shut-downs on the water supply system following the full implementation of the project.
Mr Muzungu said the advancement of the five-year project ending in 2018 has also affected the flow of traffic in Lusaka because of the closing of roads to pave way for the works.
The LWSSD project, currently under implementation, was designed to improve water supply, sanitation and drainage in select communities in Lusaka city with a target of over 1.2 million people.
Under the project, various residential areas in Lusaka will see an improvement in water reticulation system, the creation of waterlines and sewer system.
