Kampala will experience a water shutdown on Tuesday, November 16,2021,the National Water and Sewerage Corporation has announced.
“The Management of National Water and Sewerage Corporation wishes to inform its valued customers and general public that there will be interruptions in water supply tomorrow, Tuesday, November, 16 from 10am to 3pm,” NWSC said in a statement.
“Subsequently, water supply to the entire Kampala water supply service area will be affected.”
According to national water, the planned water shutdown is a result of a planned power showdown at the Ggaba Umeme power substation that supplies power to their facilities that distributes water to the entire Kampala.
NWSC reveals that the works on the power sub-station are intended to improve performance.
“Customers are therefore advised to store water and use it sparingly as it takes time for the system to stabilize after a total plant shutdown.”
However, Mukono, Seeta, Kyaliwajjala, Kireka and Ntinda will remain unaffected, NWSC has said.
