Load shedding has affected water supply in Lusaka – LWSC

Filed under: Breaking News |

The Lusaka Water and Sewage Company has complained that the four hours loadshedding being conducted by ZESCO has affected the supply of water in the capital.

In an interview with Journalists in Lusaka on Sunday  June 23, LWSC Managing Director Jonathan Kampata said water production is affected after loadshedding.

He said the company waits for extra 2 to 3 hours after the 4 hours load shedding to start supplying water from Kafue to Lusaka.

And Kampata has complained that the load shedding has increased the cost production in areas that are being supplied using boreholes as generators are being used to pump the water.

He said that LWSC is working with the Ministry of Energy on the need to partner with the private sector to put up high solar grid and electricity power plants in order to reduce the cost of production from the initial 120 boreholes in Lusaka.
