Lilongwe Water Board (LWB) would like to inform it’s valued customers that it is equally saddened with the incident of water contamination that has happened on Tuesday, July 18, 2017, in some parts of Area 18A.
According to Lilongwe Water Board, they have been working hard since morning to rectify the problem and it is informing customers that the situation is now under control.

The water supply line has been maintained and disinfected and is now being monitored to make sure it is thorough cleaned. The Board will further visit each household in the affected area to test their supply to verify it’s fitness for human consumption.
