Sh62.4 million water project for Masalani residents

Residents of Masalani town in Ijara sub-county will soon have sufficient water supply after the Garissa county government initiated the Sh62.4 million water project expected to complete in the next three months.

According to the Garissa county Executive for Water Abdi Omar the remaining part of the ongoing project supported by the Northern Water Works Development Agency, largely entails construction and protection of the intake, treatment works, and other storage structures.

“Currently, the water supply is relying on a pump that discharges 57 cubic meters per hour and the completion of the project is expected to have a discharge of 90 cubic meters,” Omar said.

Garissa county and Northern Water Works Development Agency officials inspecting the Masalani water supply project led by the county executive for Water Abdi Omar.

The county Executive further held a lengthy engagement with the sub-county Water department officials and raised concerns over the need to improve on revenue collection, minimize leakages and legitimize all water connections.

The Masalani sub-county engineer James Ombaso will oversee the implementation of effective service delivery to the area residents.

Ombasi asked the residents to continue paying the Sh1,000 flat rate per household while waiting for the department to install water meters.

In the meantime, area leaders have already expressed optimism that the raging perennial shortage of water in the area will soon be a thing of the past.
