Ruwa builds water treatment plant

water_treatmentRUWA - In an effort to ease water woes that have been bedevilling most of Zimbabwe's towns, Ruwa Town council is in the process of constructing a water treatment plant and is appealing to donors and the local business community to help raise the US$3.7 million that is needed for its completion.

The towns Mayor, Pinias Mushayavanhu, said that the town was faced with a serious water shortage and could continue to rely on water supplies from Harare which were erratic. Mushayavanhu is an MDC councillor and a former local Government top official.

“The biggest problem in Ruwa is water and our benchmark will be measured by the restoration of water supplies, we have started a water treatment plant and we are looking for capital to complete the project,” he said.

Mushayavanhu added that the small town expected to complete the project by November this year.

“Presently residents are getting water five days a week and we hope that by the end of the project residents will get water every day. We have boreholes in the town therefore we have never had any cholera outbreaks.”
