With the ongoing road construction activities in the eastern Province, several water pipes have been cut off from supplying water to various communities.
The situation has also been worsened by the persistent heavy rains which have lead to over flow of some rivers in the district destroying bridges and plantations near the river banks.
District officials together with officials from the Water and Sanitation Corporation Limited (WASAC) and Infrastructure ministry, have toured most affected sites and discussed on how to fix the broken and devastated infrastructure.
Meanwhile, WASAC has been engaging all districts in Northern Province discussing sustainable water supply and sanitation program and other water projects.
The water agency wants to extend water to all these districts.
