The Government of Uganda through National and Sewerage Corporation is constructing the largest sewage treatment plant in East and Central Africa.
The new plant will treat over 45 million litres of waste water daily and generate 621KW of biogas electricity.
The plant will also divert and treat the dry flow from the heavily polluted Nakivubo channel before releasing water into Lake Victoria. This will help improve the quality of water in the lake.
The ultra-modern sewerage treatment plant in Bugolobi uses nuisance free technology and bio-filters and will not smell.
It will serve the needs of over 850,000 people in Kampala.
The new plant will serve Naguru, Ntinda, Nakawa, Bugolobi Kyambogo, Kinawataka, Banda, Kasokoso, Butabika and neighbouring areas. This substantially extends piped sewerage services outside the Central Business District, Old Kampala, Kisekka Market area, Kololo, Nakasero and others.
