Two public boreholes constructed by two young Scottish volunteers at a cost of shs16 million have been handed over to locals after completion of the work.
At the handover, a new safe water water supply system innovated by a local resident Eng. Henry Sekatawa was also commissioned.
The new water sources were constructed in Namaggwa and Kakoola villages, to serve residents of the two villages and those in neighbouring Lwetunga, Bunankya and Ttoggo villages in Naluvule parish, Kapeeka sub-county.
Handing over the wells, Sekatawa who worked hand in hand with the two volunteers said his innovation is a new one which ensures uninterrupted water supply even during the dry season.
Taps are fitted onto the source to stop wasteful flow when no one is drawing.
Resources allowing he said, there are plans to replicate this system in as many places as possible to save locals from sharing water from dirty sources with animals.
