Sigh Of Relief For Lodwar Residents As Boreholes Are Repaired

Lodwar residents heaved a sigh of relief after Lodwar Water and Sanitation Company (LOWASCO) successfully repaired boreholes that had been affected by floods.

The Company’s rapid response team managed to fix Napuu boreholes, restoring the water supply to the populous regions of Kanamkemer Ward, including Nawoitorong and Turkana University.

LOWASCO Managing Director Esther Lokitoe stated that the two-day supply interruptions had impacted the county headquarters, the Napuu Chief’s camp, and the surrounding villages due to the breakdown of boreholes 3 and 7, located at the Napuu aquifer.

‘I can confirm that the mechanical issue has been rectified and normal water supply has resumed. As a company, we are dedicated to swift responses and communication with our clients to mitigate any inconveniences,’ MD Lokitoe affirmed.

A visit to a few homes in Nawaitorong confirmed the resumption
of water supply, with residents urging for consistent supply and timely notification during interruptions.

The resumption comes at a time when LOWASCO is collaborating with the Department of Water Services to expedite the drilling of four boreholes to replace borehole 9, which served as Kanamkemer’s primary water source but was swept away by flooding in the River Turkwel a few weeks ago.
