Improving water quality testing in Kasungu District

WaterAid/Dennis Lupenga

In September 2017, a group of Thames Water staff visited Malawi to share their skills and experience with CRWB, a local water utility.

The group provided training and support to CRWB on leakage detection, network management, and water treatment all in an effort to improve their service delivery and reach even more people with clean water.

The project seeks to increase sustainable access, use and management of improved water and sanitation services in the low income areas of Kasungu and Mponela by 2020. The overall purpose of the project is to improve the WASH conditions in the respective districts by mobilizing the communities to end open defecation by constructing household level toilets, providing water supply schemes as an incentive and thorough health and hygiene campaigns for long term sustainable behaviour changes.
