Nairobi City Water & Sewerage Company Ltd (NCWSC) has announced plans to shut down the water supply pipeline along Uhuru Highway, Mombasa Road and Waiyaki Way.

In a notice published in the local daily newspapers, NCWSC said that the disruption would last for about 24 hours from Thursday to Friday.

Nairobi City Water & Sewerage Company Ltd (NCWSC) will shut down the water supply pipeline along Uhuru Highway due to ongoing construction of the Expressway / Mombasa road starting from 6:00 am on Thursday, 14 April 2022 to Friday, 15 April 2022 at 6:00 am.

This will facilitate the interconnection of the relocated new and old water pipelines on Uhuru Highway between Haile Selassie Avenue and University Way Road junctions with Uhuru Highway to enable the release of the road corridor to the Expressway road contractor,” the notice reads.

Areas to be affected include;

  1. Nairobi CBD,
  2. Ngara,
  3. Parklands,
  4. Estates along Limuru Road,
  5. Aga Khan hospital,
  6. University of Nairobi Parklands law campus,
  7. Estates along Mombasa road,
  8. South B
  9. South C areas and the surrounding neighbourhoods

Other parts of Nairobi that will also experience water shortage are

  4. EPZ-Athi river,
  5. The whole of Industrial Area,
  6. Estates along Jogoo road such as City Stadium, Maringo, Bahati, Buruburu and the surrounding areas.

The water company has appealed to customers to use available water sparingly as it works towards restoring the supply.
