GGABA – National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) has announced that it is experiencing a total power outage at Ggaba waterworks, advising city dwellers to use water sparingly.
The water authority says this is affecting all water production process and supply to Kampala City.
In a statement issued Sunday morning, the corporation authorities advised city dwellers to use water sparingly as it takes time for the pipe network to stabilise with water after a total plant shutdown.
Kindly store the available water in the network as we work with the team from UMEME to address this issue,” the cooperation twitted.
