LWSC starts sanitation feasibility study

SYLVESTER CHISHIMBA, Lusaka
LUSAKA Water and Sewerage Company (LWSC) has started feasibility studies for the Lusaka sanitation.
LWSC managing director George Ndongwe said the project entails rehabilitation of existing waste water treatment plants.  This will include improving pump stations, sludge and waste water treatment plants and associated main collectors.
Mr Ndongwe said the implementation of the project estimated to cost €208 million (K1,596,716,289) has been made possible by Government through the Ministry of Local Government and Housing with financial support from the European Investment Bank, German development bank, KfW, World Bank and the African Development Bank.
“For the first time in the history of LWSC, we have managed to secure key infrastructure development projects and these involve huge financial investment in the development of water and sanitation infrastructure,” Mr Ndongwe said in an interview.
Mr Ndongwe said once implemented, the Lusaka sanitation project will definitely improve LWSC’s service delivery capacity.
He said the project, whose actual physical works commence in 2016, will also address the sanitation in peri-urban areas through on-site and off-site facilities coupled with health and hygiene promotion.
