At least 14,577 Maputo and Matola residents are making do with poor water supply, according to Minister of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources João Machatine.
Speaking during a visit to the Pequenos Libombos Dam on Tuesday, and noting that the dam currently holds only 20 percent of its 400 million cubic metres storage capacity, Machatine said that the immediate solution would be to provide water on a day-on, day-off basis.
Additionally, it is intended to sink boreholes with a capacity of 30,000 thousand cubic metres by July.
Among other solutions is the construction next year of a treatment station in Maputo province that will depart from Moamba to Machava with a capacity of 60 cubic metres per day.
In addition to the water that comes from the Pequenos Libombos reservoir, Greater Maputo currently has 10 water holes with a capacity of 12,000 cubic metres.
