According to the Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company, some Nairobi residents will experience a water shortage between Wednesday and Thursday.

In a notice issued on Monday, the company said the water pipeline from Gigiri Reservoir to Karura Reservoir- Outer Ring Road will be shut down from Wednesday, February 14, at 6 a.m. to Thursday, February 15, at 6 a.m.

“This will facilitate the relocation of the water pipeline in conflict with the office construction site in the United Nation Offices at Gigiri.”

The shutdown will interrupt the water supply at UN Complex, Ridgeways, Muthaiga North, Balozi, Garden Estate, Windsor, Mathare North, Garden City, GSU headquarters, and East Africa Breweries (EABL), Ngumba and Babadogo estates.

Other areas that will also be affected include estates along Outering Road, Huruma. Umoja 1, Dandora area 1, Donholm, Tassia, Fedha, Nyayo Embakasi, Kware areas, and parts of Pipeline Estate.

“Whilst every effort will be made to restore the water supply after the completion of the shutdown, we request all customers in the affected areas to use their stored water sparingly during the period of interruption."
