The Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company (NCWSC) has announced an emergency shutdown of the water supply along the Sasumua-Kabete pipeline which will affect several estates for 24 hours.

In a public notice on Thursday, December 14, Nairobi Water announced that the repair works on the pipeline would commence on Friday, December 15, at 7:00 am and end on Saturday, December 16, at 7:00 am.

“The aim of the shutdown is to facilitate repairs of major leaks along the pipeline which if not contained will lead to major landslides resulting to more damage to the pipeline,” read the notice in part.

Among the areas set to be affected include the International School of Kenya, Kinanda Valley, Kihingo Valley and Magnolia, Waiyaki Way, and James Gichuru Road.

The temporary shortage will also affect residents living near major roads such as Dennis Pritt Road, Lang’ata Road, Peponi Road, Kikuyu Road, Naivasha Road, Mbagathi Road and River Side Drive.

The whole of Lavington, Kilimani, Westlands, Parklands, Loresho, Kangemi, Uthiru, Karen, and Kawangware were also targeted on the list.

Nairobi Water assured residents set to be affected by the water shortage that it would embark on a swift restoration of water supply within the specified period.

“Whilst every effort will be made to restore the water supply, we request all customers in the affected areas to use their stored water sparingly during the period of interruption,” the notice added.

Nairobi Water is tasked with the responsibility of managing water and sewerage services in the capital city.
