Nkana Water and Sewerage Company has been accused of supplying suspected contaminated water to mining town Kalulushi on the Copperbelt province.

Kalulushi Mayor Howard Simpemba has expressed displeasure with the quality of water Nkana Water and Sewerage Company was supplying to the people of Kalulushi.

Simpemba wondered why the water utility firm was giving people such a bad service. He feared that  if nothing urgent is done, there would be an outbreak of a water borne disease in the area.

Many residents of Kalulushi have been complaining about the erratic water supply and the poor quality of water which they suspected to be contaminated.

“ There is no way we can be given such a treatment, government should compel Nkana Water and Sewerage Company to improve its service delivery,” complained Isaac Phiri.

Nkana Water and Sewerage Company Public Relations Manager Damaseke Chibale said his company was working around the clock to ensure that people are given a better service.
