World Bank finances project to expand water distribution network in Chitato

The World Bank will finance the expansion of the water distribution network in the municipality of Chitato, Lunda Norte province. The project, valued at more than $12 million, provides for the construction of 15,000 new household connections, which will improve the supply of drinking water to the region's population.


It is estimated that the work, which started on Monday, will take about 24 months to be concluded.

According to Angop, the expansion of the distribution network will generate the creation of 15,000 new household connections in the Samacaca, Satxindongo, Kamaquenzo, Estufa, Taxa Barragem, Bairro Norte, Caxinde and downtown areas.

For now, the project has created 60 direct and indirect jobs for young people in the region. However, with the evolution of the work, this number may increase.

Cited by Angop, Ernesto Muangala, governor of Lunda Norte, asked those in charge of the project to meet the stipulated deadlines, since there is a lack of water in the neighborhoods.

André Camilo, president of the Board of Directors of Empresa Pública de Águas e Saneamento, considered that the project will help improve the supply of water in the municipality, thus increasing the company's billing.
