Pay Water Bills to Avoid Water Disconnection the Time You need Water Most

Internally-funded Projects – Capex

Ludzi Intake

The Board has constructed a run-of-the-river concrete intake on Ludzi Stream for Mchinji Water Supply Scheme between September 2013 and November 2013 which increased surface water abstraction by 18m3/hr as a way mitigating against the reduced abstract from the Chimwankhuku and Mtenjemanga stream intakes. Due to low rainfall, abstract reduced from 70m3/hr to 59m3/hr. The impact of the project, therefore, was that the abstraction was increased to 77m3/hr. The project was designed by the Boards engineers and was internally funded to the tune of MK12 million.
