LWSC confirms water contamination

Filed under: Breaking News |

The Lusaka and Sewerage Company has confirmed that some parts of Lusaka have experienced isolated  cases of water contamination barely a day after the water utility company refuted reports to that effect.

Addressing journalists Thursday afternoon, Company Managing Director Jonathan Kampata said the contamination was instant and it affected parts of Ibex Hill, Nyumba Yanga and Malata area near Kabulonga.

He explained that the contamination was not from LWSC water supply but from a leaking pipe.

Kampata said the water utility firm in collaboration with other government agencies has scaled up surveillance of water supply in the affected areas.

He said the water utility firm has also intensified chlorination of its water supply.
