The Government of Uganda through National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) in partnership with Development partner KfW has broken ground for the new Gulu water supply Treatment at Karuma designed to serve over 484,000 people.
The plant shall initially produce 10million litres of water per day
This capacity shall suffice to meet the short term demands of Gulu City and the six towns en route.
The towns include; Kamdini, Koro Abili, Karuma, Bobi, Palenga, Minakuru and Gulu City.
This will supplement the existing production of 10 million litres per day from the recently refurbished treatment plant in the City.
Previous investment increased the production supply from 5 million to 10 million litres per day meaning that upon completion of the project, a total of 20 million litres will be available for use daily, which is sufficient to satisfy current demands in the supply area.
Provisions to upscale the water production capacity to 30 million litres per day by 2040 have been made.
