Water Shortage Hits Gulu City

News | The Northern Link UG | Acute water shortage has hit Gulu City residents for the past two days following a breakdown in the raw water transmission pipe from Oyitino Dam in Bar-dege-Layibi division to the main water reservoir in the City center.

Ivan Tekakwo, the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC), Public Relations Officers, told journalists that the raw water transmission pipe busted on Sunday night cutting off the water supply to the main water reservoir. According to Tekakwo, the NWSC engineers are working within the shortest possible time to fix the problem.
