Water Supply

The water supply system in the province is at two levels – the conventional water supply system which is obtaining in urban centres and boreholes which communities in rural areas rely upon. Previously, each local authority was responsible for supply of water within the area of its jurisdiction. With a government policy shift on urban water supply and sanitation, all water supply systems in urban areas are now being managed by a commercial utility company of which all local authorities are shareholders.

Water supply in urban centres of the province is being managed by a commercial utility company called Chambeshi Water and Sewerage Company In order to improve the urban water supply system in the province, the urban water and supply systems for Nakonde, Isoka and the Provincial Headquarters, Chinsali are currently being rehabilitated by overhauling distribution networks, construction of elevated tanks and installing modular treatment plants.

In rural areas where there is no distribution network for conventional water supply, communities are served with boreholes which are drilled in strategic places.
