List of Nairobi estates to experience water shortage on Thursday, Friday

The Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company (NWSC) has announced a 24-hour water supply shutdown from Thursday, 6am to Friday, October 6, 12pm.

In a public notice on Tuesday, NWSC said that the shutdown has been prompted by a leakage that will lead to the total shutdown of Ngethu Water Treatment Plant in Gatundu North, Kiambu County.

“There is a major leakage on the raw water pipeline from between Matara Raw Water Chamber and Ngethu Water Treatment Plant which will necessitate a complete shutdown of Ngethu Water Treatment Plant,” the statement read in part.

It will also involve carrying out scheduled maintenance at the Kiambu reservoir in preparation for the anticipated El Niño phenomenon during the October 2023 short rains.

“Whilst every effort will be made to restore the supply of water as soon as possible, we request all customers in the affected areas to use water sparingly during the period of interruption,” read part of the notice.
