http://www.ntvuganda.co.ug/ Concern has been raised about the quality of water that is consumed in and around Kampala. Ministry of water and environment officials, Members of Parliament and National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) who were on a fact finding tour of Murchison bay on lake victoria observed that the lake had been heavily polluted. The Water Ministry has called for a review of all land titles belonging to individuals residing along the catchment areas along lake victoria.
President Yoweri Museveni on Tuesday 24th 2017 commissioned the new Ggaba Water Works that will increase water supply in Kampala from 200 million litres to 250 million litres per day. This is part of the Kampala Water Lake Victoria WatSan Project (LV-WATSAN) aimed at addressing water supply challenges in greater Kampala metropolitan area up to the year 2035. It is funded under the Kampala Water Lake Victoria WatSan Project, that has seen the government and development partners complete rehabilitation of Ggaba I & II treatment plants and complete new transmission mains from Gaba to Namasuba.

In most countries that have a coastline, getting fresh fish is not really a problem. But for landlocked nations like Uganda it can be a challenge. Luckily, Ugandans have Lake Victoria to get freshwater fish. Now, for the first time in the capital, Kampala, a restaurant is offering diners fresh fish they can pick from an aquarium. And you can't get fresher than that. Leon Ssenyange has more.
The rapid growth in rural to urban migration rates has not been matched by the rate of infrastructure developments. In several urban settlements where the poorest end up, lack of infrastructure to pipe water from clean sources means that communities pay exorbitant amounts of money for water, which is sometimes not suitable for consumption. This puts them at risk of contamination due to several factors for example. Bwaise II, a poor settlement on the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda, used to resemble those settlements i.e. poor families in Bwaise II paid more than the wealthiest families in Uganda for their water, and as a result would often use contaminated springs for washing and laundry. RAIN Uganda was designed and constructed a prepaid water system to improve access to affordable , safe w...

Lake Victoria is one of the Great Lakes of Africa. It is located about 5 km south of the city of Kampala. It named after Queen Victoria by the British explorer John Hanning Speke, in 1858, while on an expedition to locate the source of the Nile River. Lake Victoria is Africa's largest lake by area and the largest tropical lake in the world. Lake Victoria is the world's second largest fresh water lake by surface area, after Lake Superior in North America. The Lake receives its water primarily from direct rainfall (80%) and thousands of small streams. The Kagera River is the largest stream flowing into this lake. Lake Victoria is drained solely by the Nile River near Jinja, Uganda, on the northern shore of the Lake. Lake Victoria’s maximum length is 337 km and width is 250 km, with an avera...

Ismael Asiimwe Mustapha, VoicesofAfrica mobile reporter in Kampala, Uganda (1 May 2011) Bwaise residents in Kampala, the capital of Uganda, will not forget the last week of April, when they powerlessly saw their houses and properties disappear under muddy waters. Drainage canals were simply not up to the task. All the people migrated to the nearby villages like Kawempe and Kazo. Other sought shelter in nearby churches and await humanitarian aid.
In this quick video clip is an image of the water pump area many residents of Buziga use for water access. The cost to fill one jerry can is 200 shillings. The trade off is that the owner is not very serious about his business. The area around the water pump is not cemented or even well maintained for drainage.
