CHOMBA MUSIKA, Lusaka
LUSAKA Water and Sewerage Company (LWSC) has dismissed as malicious a message being circulated on social media claiming that water has been contaminated and that the
utility company has advised people to desist from consuming it.
LWSC marketing and public relations manager Patson Phiri, in a statement issued yesterday, described the statement circulating on social media as malicious and alarming.
“LWSC is guided by the Zambia Bureau of Standards guidelines to produce and supply quality drinking water to its customers. In that regard, the water supplied by the utility company goes through a standard treatment process before it is supplied to the customers.
“Water quality surveillance is also undertaken on a daily basis and quality control measures are in place to ensure the water supplied meets the quality standards required,” Mr Phiri said.
