NWSC engages Mukono Municipality in strategic planning meeting

MUKONO: In an effort to streamline coordination for ongoing projects, the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) joined forces with Mukono Municipality during a significant Physical Planning Meeting held on June 27th, 2024. Key representatives from NWSC, including the Branch Manager Mukono-Mr. Busingye Swithin, the Branch Manager-Seeta, Ms. Carol Kyomugisha, and Eng. Ms. Hajara Birungi, were active participants in this crucial dialogue.

The meeting, chaired by the Town Clerk, brought together important stakeholders to deliberate on essential infrastructure projects. Among the highlights was the World Bank-funded initiative to upgrade several roads to tarmac, a move expected to significantly enhance the municipality’s infrastructure. Service providers were urged to submit their plans for approval by the municipal council, with a mutual agreement to hold regular quarterly engagements to avert potential infrastructure damage.

A significant focus of the discussions was on addressing the Jjogo pond, a result of NWSC’s activities on Bugerere Road, and the reinstatement of trees damaged during these works. NWSC pledged to improve its communication with the municipal council, particularly before commencing road grading projects. The meeting also tackled issues such as alternative water sources, water theft, and non-revenue water, calling for community cohesion.

NWSC announced an upcoming Barazza in August to address customer concerns directly. They also detailed ambitious plans to extend water services to new areas, including Nyanja Seeta, Bugerere Nsambwe, and the New Jinja Road project. This expansion is aimed at bringing services closer to the community, thereby enhancing the overall water supply network.

The regular engagements and strategic planning portray a new era of cooperation and development for the region, and together, all arms are bound to shape a brighter, more connected future.
