"We request all customers in the affected areas to use water sparingly during the period of interruption."

Several Estates in Nairobi are set to experience Water supply interruptions beginning Thursday, October 5.

This is according to the Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company.

The water supply interruption will be between Thursday 6:00 am to Friday, October 6, at 12.00 pm.

In a notice posted in local dailies, the water supply interruption has been occasioned by the shutdown of the Ngethu Water Treatment Plant.

"We request all customers in the affected areas to use water sparingly during the period of interruption," the notice read in part.

The disruption of the water supply seeks to pave the way for the repair of a major leakage on the raw water pipeline between Matara Raw Water Chamber and Ngethu Water Treatment Plant.
