The Lilongwe Water Board (LWB) has procured a Mobile Water Treatment Plant which will compliment the Board’s efforts during water supply emergency situations.

Residents of the city’s Area 18A in Malawi's commercial capita were recently drinking water from unprotected water source following a burst pipe which spilled feaces into the board’s supply pipe line.

The plant supplied by Paramount Holdings Limited will be used during critical water supply interruptions, total shutdown of one of the Board’s water treatment plants, and during water rationing program.

Following its enclosed truck trailer for vehicle towing, the plant according to the Board, can operate anywhere even in locations with no access to electricity.

The plant has an inbuilt diesel- driven power generator, but it can also be connected to electricity power grid.

The mobile water treatment plant has facilities to be used for purification of water for bottling and can treat water from any source including rivers and streams.

The plant which is the first of its kind in Malawi, is reportedly efficient in producing safe and pure drinkable water as any water purifier does.
