The Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) says the country’s water security situation is currently satisfactory, as the national average dam level has risen to 81,7% owing to the above normal rainfall patterns experienced across the country recently.

Manyame catchment has so far recorded the highest average dam level of 101, 8% as at friday last week.

In an interview with Capitalk Fm News, ZINWA corporate communications and marketing manager Mr Tsungirirai Shoriwa said the improved water situation secured the country’s preparations for the upcoming winter cropping season and other domestic needs.

Mr Shoriwa however emphasised the need to continue preserving water despite indications that it was in abundance.

 

 

City of Harare raw water provision secured

 

Meanwhile ZINWA says Harare City Council’s raw water provision for this season is now secured, as dams that supply water to the capital have recorded over 100 percent average dam level.

ZINWA, however said the situation did not ultimately give a solution to the current domestic water woes experienced in the city of Harare, where most suburbs operate with no running tap water.

Mr Tsungirirai Shoriwa said the provision of treated water for domestic use was a prerogative of the local authority.
