The National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) has embarked on a number of projects to boost water supply along Entebbe road and neighboring areas.
According to officials, the Corporation targets to upgrade the booster station in Nsamizi- Entebbe to deliver more water to Kawuku and Kajjansi from the Entebbe network to cater for the growing demand.
They also intend to upgrade the Namulanda booster station to double the current volumes of water being lifted to Akright reservoir for distribution to consumers.
NWSC has gradually widened her services across the country and this has seen them scoop local and international recognition as a model utility.
As of 2017, has presence in 218 towns up from 27 towns in 2013.
The Corporation was only functional in three cities of Kampala, Jinja and Entebbe at its inception in 1972.
The new development will also see upgrade of transmission and distribution pipe mains in Bwebajja and construction of a new water reservoir and booster station in the same area to stabilize water supply.
NWSC Managing Director Eng. Silver Mugisha has revealed that the works, once completed will boost supply to Abaita Branch (Kasenyi road & Lyamutundwe); Kawuku Branch (Wamala, Ziiru, Ssisa, Lutaba, Sekiwunga, Akright, Kabulamuliro, Bwebajja, Nganjo, Dewe); Kajjansi branch (Lumuli, Makandwa, Nakigalala, Kitovu, Mazzi, Bweya, Kitende) and the surrounding areas.
He said the Nsamizi and Namulanda booster station upgrade and Namulanda network upgrade works are in advanced stages and the system will be fully operational within a month’s time.
“Our team is also looking at alternative water sources to construct two new mini water supply systems in Lumuli and Nakigalala. The interventions are geared at improving the water supply situation along Entebbe road” he said
