Prepare to have dry taps on Friday

07 February 2013, 14:11 Roggers Momata

Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company (NWSC) General Manager Rita Kavashe has today cautioned the Nairobi residents to be prepared to have dry taps on Friday 8th February.

Though not all consumers of the essential commodity would be affected across the city, residents have been advised to consider looking for alternative sources of water as the company embarks on a maintenance program expected to take place for the better part of February.

Among the residents said to be affected to miss water supply are areas along Mombasa Road and North Airport Road in Nairobi.

“We do expected that the operation of the maintenance program would commence from as early as 7am till 7pm same day. Though some of the companies and residents do have a back up supply, some of the firms around the affected areas would have to incur some unplanned expenses during that day,” said Kavashe.

Most prominent firms to be affected include the Coca-Cola Bottlers Company, the Jommo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), Fire Stone dealers, General Motors Limited among other businesses located around the mentioned areas.

Residents living in the neighbouring areas such as Fedha Estate, Embakasi Village Estate, Villa Franca, Imara Daima and Simba Villa would also have to bear up with the situation as the program kicks off.

Though this program comes at an unprecedented time, the NWSC says that the motive behind it is to enhance quality service delivery to its customers across the wider part of the city and once completed, people should expect the services to resume normally.

Among some of the targeted areas that are said to benefit from the program are firms located within the Industrial Area together with its environs which have for a long time lacked the precious commodity to facilitate their operations.

Given the high population present at the Industrial Area, the Company pledged to take the shortest time possible in ensuring the laid down plans are fully executed.
