The Lilongwe Water Board (LWB) has trashed rumours hovering on the social suggesting that there is water contamination in Area 51, Area 18, some parts of Area 25 and Kawale, saying the rumour is untrue.
LWB said this in a statement made available to faceofmalawi reporter.in the statement the board said it carried out a water quality assessment in the said Areas to verify the reports, and found that there is no any water contamination.
Lilongwe Water Board has since urged its customers to ignore the said reports.
“LWB would further like to urge the general public to desist from creating such false reports as they only create public panic and disorder.
“The Board has in place well established social media forums and a website through which customers and the general public can report and access any information concerning its operations, water supply updates and other water related issues. Customers are, therefore, urged to always verify any water related issue or report with the Board through its well-established 24/7 Customer Call-Centre by calling 253 for free,” reads in part the statement.
Meanwhile, LWB would like to assure its customers that it will continue to supply them with water of acceptable quality which is produced based on internationally accepted drinking water quality standards.
