 Water Issues in the District

  • Some of the water schemes were destroyed by floods. These schemes include (Ibanda-Bugoye, Muhokya
  • Encroachment of water source catchment areas by water users
  • Some schemes need government grants to supplement efforts of the community members for maintenance

 Most Critical Challenges Affecting Access to Safe Water

  • Terrain of the district dictates large gravity flow schemes that require large sums to develop (averagely Ug.Shs. 800million) to develop a single scheme compared to the annual district release of 550million.
  • Reluctance on operation and maintenance
  • The water table does not favor GFS
  • Inadequate funding to the water sector.
  • Tectonic Movements of the Aquifers
  • High water table that hinders bore hall construction in the Lower water stressed areas
  • Unpalatable ground water quality in lower lands
