US $96m water treatment plant to be constructed in Uganda

A US $96m water treatment plant is set for construction in Kampala, Uganda by Sogea Satom which is a French company after a collaboration with the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC).

The establishment of the mega water treatment plant will not only serve the growing population in the east of Kampala but will also alleviate water-borne diseases due to availability of clean water for domestic use and other consumption.
