Some parts of Chingola, Chililabombwe and Mufulira Districts have had no water for the past three days with residents now depending on shallow wells.
The situation is however expected to remain the same in the coming days as Mulonga Water and Sewerage Company does not seem to be acting on the erratic Water Supply.
Mulonga Water and Sewerage Company Public Relations Manager Deborah Kangende said the current erratic water supply is expected to continue for some time until remedial measures are implemented.
“The Challenge has been amplified by a combination of factors ranging from increased demand of water supply, power supply challenges and accidental pipe damages by ongoing road works, in this regard we appeal to customers to exercise patience during the period of unstable supply,” she stated.
Kangende has further disclosed that water supply in the most affected areas will only improve around November, 2018.
