Minister of Agricultural, Water and Forestry, John Mutorwa said Monday that this frightening and worrying as the Omatakao, Von Bach and Swakkopport Dams from 2012 to 2016 have not received significant inflow that is sufficient to sustain CAN.
The three dams are vital as they supply water to a several towns, villages, settlements and big industrial- commercial entities including mines.
“Undoubtedly, the CAN must be seen and accepted, as probably the most important areas, because the areas include Windhoek, the nation’s capital,” he added.
Mutorwa said various strategies have been implemented by the different water divisions to avoid Central Namibia running out.
The minister said they are also looking at securing long-term water supply to the CAN, such as desalination of seawater or drawing water from a permanent reliable water source. Enditem.
