    ZINWA resuscitating over 1 200 non-functional boreholes


    HARARE - The Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) has embarked on a programme to resuscitate over 1200 non-functional boreholes across the country.
    Corporate Communications and Marketing Manager Marjorie Munyonga confirmed about the programme.
    Munyonga said that the programme was done for drought mitigation interventions.
    "The programme is worth $1, 8 million and it will see the resuscitation of one borehole per ward country wide as part of the Authority's drought response strategies," said Munyonga
    The resuscitation of boreholes started last weekend in Goromonzi ward 20, Zvimba wards 8 and 33.
    These drought response interventions follow successful similar exercises in areas such as Lupane, Mutawatawa, Kotwa, Zimunya, Chitakatira, Meleme, Esigodini and Guinea Fowl.
    She said wherever there is a non functional borehole or one that has dried up, the exercise will see to it that there is further deepening by drilling.
    ZINWA has deployed water bowsers to supply water to  Mt Darwin where the Growth Point's water source has dried up.
    The arrangement will remain in place until the completion of the water conveyance works ZINWA is carrying out in Mt Darwin.
