Sunday 24 October, 2021; Management of National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) is aware of a false story circulating on social media that there was an explosion at the Sonde water reservoir.

There was no explosion at the Sonde water reservoir. The tank is intact.

On Sunday morning, the inlet pipe that delivers water from Katosi Water Treatment Plant to the reservoir suffered a technical failure and gave way.

This caused water to regrettably enter some houses and compounds near the reservoir.

No one was injured in the incident.

NWSC is in touch with the people who were inconvenienced and will resolve any outstanding issues with them.

The tank and the pipeline are under the testing and defects liability period of the contract.

Technical teams from the contractor and NWSC are fully mobilised and are working to repair the inlet pipe and restore water supply to the affected customers as soon as possible.

“As we undertake repair work and restoration of supply, NWSC would like to advise her customers served by the Sonde reservoir to store water and use it sparingly as the technical teams repair the damaged pipeline and restore supply,” NWSC said in a statement.
