Kisumu residents continue to face water shortage following reduced water levels in one of its extraction points.
And Kisumu Water and Sanitation Company (KIWASCO) has indicated, in a notice to its clients, that water levels at River Kibos has dropped drastically due to the ongoing drought.
This has affected Kajulu treatment plant’s production capacity, resulting into intermittent supply in many parts of the county.
Some of the areas affected include; Kanyamedha, Otonglo, Tieng’re, Uzima, Mamboleo, Guba, Wathorego, Kambogo, Gita, and Kibos.
Others are; Chiga, Lolwe, Migosi, Kogony, RIAT, Manyatta, Sengo Community and Coptic.
Even though the water supplier has assured the residents that they are working around the clock to restore normalcy, residents have also been advised to play their part in a bid to reduce the impact of the situation.
“You are therefore advised to use water sparingly and have adequate storage,” KIWASCO advised in its memo circulated on Friday.
In the memo signed by Managing Director Tom Odongo, KIWASCO also wants residents to be responsive to the dangerous human activities escalating climate change.
“We request residents to conserve environment to mitigate against negative effects of Climate Change,” read the memo in part.
