Rumphi Water Supply and Sanitation Services Improvement Project
Rumphi water supply system currently provides water to 17,928. Majority of the customers are connected through 20 mm diameter pipelines resulting in very low pressures. Rumphi water supply scheme covers most of the areas of Rumphi Boma except developing areas around the Boma such as Jaghala and Mlongoti which are partly connected and having low pressures. Boundaries of the existing water supply are Mayembe and Phalasitwe Hills to the north, South Rukuru River to the south and east and Chigwere to the west.
