KWUA Address Risk to Pump Intake due to Lower Lake Levels

EWB-APC has undertaken a review of alternatives to the current pump setting in the event that the level of Lake Malawi continues to fall. KWUA operates submersible pumps that feed the water supply, treatment, and distribution system. In recent years, the level of Lake Malawi during dry season has dropped very close to the pump intake location. The pumps were …
