Water plant building starts

GOVERNMENT has partnered with the Japanese Organisation for International Co-operation and Kafubu Water and Sewerage Company in setting up a US$400 million plant and a dam in Mpongwe and Masaiti districts on the Copperbelt.
The water project, which will start in July this year, is aimed at addressing the erratic water supply for many districts on the Copperbelt.
Mpongwe district commissioner Keith Maila said the project is being funded by the Danish International Development Agency.
Mr Maila said the financing agreement for the project has already been done and all that is remaining are the feasibility studies.
“It will have a stand-alone water treatment plant, under Kafubu Water and Sewerage Company. This will be a milestone for people in the area who have had water problems for more than a decade now,” Mr Maila said.
