NAWASA reminds the general public that significant heavy rainfall makes our water systems HIGHLY susceptible to interruption due to dam blockages, turbidity and damage to infrastructure.
Please be advised that once a dam becomes blocked and there is continuous heavy river flow, our employee WILL NOT BE placed in harm’s way, traversing the river to clear blockages to restore a supply.
The Authority continues to advocate for consumers to collect and store water in clean covered containers to last a minimum of three days taking into consideration the immediate needs of their families.
The Authority is hopeful that persons would comply with our request at ALL times and apologises for any inconveniences caused while thanking consumers for their patience as we work towards the delivery of a safe, adequate and reliable water supply.
NAWASA …. committed to meeting customers’ needs
