The Pequenos Libombos dam has enough water to supply the Maputo province until the end of the year, even if it doesn’t rain again, Jaime Timba, the technician responsible for the reservoir that supplies the Mozambican capital, has said.
“From our figures, we conclude that we have enough water to last until March 2019, even if it doesn’t rain again this year,” the O País daily quotes him as saying.
The improved water level in the dam, which had already led to improvements in supply in recent weeks, is the basis for the forecast.
Supply restrictions were partially lifted at the end of April, and water in the public grid ran for eight hours a day rather than then few hours every other day which has been the case since February.
However, the situation continues to require strict management and saving water should remain a priority, Timba concluded.Source: Lusa
