Nairobi residents to experience water rationing even longer

BY UPESINEWS REPORTER,NAIROBI,4TH APRIL 2017-The Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company says  the ongoing  water rationing program in Nairobi is expected to  continue even longer after water levels at the Ndakaini dam dropped to levels never seen before.

The company’s  Managing Director Philip Gichuki says the water levels have reached a first time low of 25 per cent.

 He says they will issue a new rationing schedule in two weeks once a review has been concluded.

On Sunday, the company issued an alert that the water supply to Nairobi and parts of Kiambu and Machakos would be interrupted between Thursday and Saturday to allow for the maintenance of the raw water pipeline Mataara-Ngethu.

In January, the company released a water rationing schedule to last the four months until the long rains were expected to alter Ndakaini’s water levels.
