Nigeria: FCT Abuja shuts down public water supply from Monday, to last 5 days

Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Water Board has announced that it will halt public water supply in some areas of the territory for five days from Monday next week.

The board said in a statement announcing the suspension that it would enable it carry out some rehabilitation works.

According to the statement, the board would shut down phases 1, 3 and 4 treatment plants for five days to enable the connection of a bypass trunk line to Kubwa main line for the rehabilitation of the treated water tank’s roof slab.

It said the maintenance would take place in two phases with phase one starting from Monday, October 18, to Tuesday, October 19, and phase two from Friday, October 22, to Sunday, October 24.

The statement reads in part: “Consequently, there will be disruption of water supply first to the residents of Kubwa, Airport and Gwagwalada. Similarly, there will be disruption of water supply in Maitama, Asokoro, Garki 1, Garki 2, Karu, Nyanya, Kubwa 1, Kubwa 2, Wuse 1 and Wuse 2, Barracks and the Central Area.’’

While regretting the inconvenience the rehabilitation work will cause, the board advised residents of the affected areas to start storing water to use during the period.

This is coming after water producers in the nation’s capital have jerked up the price of sachet water from N10 to N20.
