The Kagadi district Piped Water Project has made 90 Percent progress in connecting residents to the water grid in the four town councils of Kagadi,Muhorro,Kyenzige and Ruteete where the 22.8 Billion shillings water project covers.
The development was unveiled by Eng.Amon Rwakiiza from Mid Western Umbrella of Water and Sanitation during an advocacy meeting with the district stakeholders at Emiline Hotel in Kagadi Town Council Kagadi district.
He explained that before taking over the project the district had only 550 water connections but since the takeover they have added 700 connections that make the total of 1250 connections of piped water in the District.
Eng.Rwakiiza urges people who are not yet connected to the piped water to remain patient, promising that they will soon extend water services to them.
Rwakiiza says residents who paid Ugx 100,000 for water connections during the first phase of promotion period have been given water taps and currently 80% of those beneficiaries have been served.
He says they are committed to supplying water to all the people and also asking interested persons to clear connection fees and get served.
