Lagos Water Corporation has appealed to the general public for the discomfort and inconveniences presently experienced over temporary disruption of water supply in some parts of Lagos metropolis, as a result of shortage of Gas in its Independent Power Plant (IPP) at Akute Intake and other water power plants.

In a statement issued today at the Water House, Ijora, Lagos, by the Management of the Corporation, “the disruption of water supply is due to current vandalization of Gas pipelines in the Niger Delta Region of the Country which has adversely affected the Production at its various Water facilities across the State”.

The Corporation is currently working relentlessly on the alternative power supply to restore power to its Waterworks.

While assuring the Public of the Corporation’s commitment towards providing un-interrupted water supply in the State, the Management urges the general public to bear with the Corporation as the problem is for a short while.
