The entire construction works of Katosi water treatment/ Katosi water works is currently at 95 percent complete, the contractor has said.
The water treatment facility is under construction in the lake side town of Katosi in Ntenjeru sub-county Mukono district. The construction started in 2019 but in 2011, the government through National Water and Sewage Corporation (NWSC) began to make plans to construct a water treatment facility at Katosi, to augment the facility at Ggaba to meet the needs of the rapidly growing population of Kampala metropolitan area.
The plant is expected to pump 160,000 cubic meters (160 million Liters) of water daily, expandable to 240,000 cubic meters (240 million liters) daily.
According to the Quality Engineer, Mr Simon Ssembela, civil works is at 95 percent; that’s mechanical and electrical.
