Nearly half of the population living in Geita and Mwanza Region have not enough pure fresh water for use or to drink. Population growth, Air pollution, Agriculture activities, shortage of wells, Lack of water treatment plants and reagents is seen as a major factor in precipitating these problems. Not all villages are situated in areas close to deep boreholes.Almost a water of the villagers living in these areas had supplies with dirt and low amount of water for the use of 5 to 10 liters per day for each family.This increase infections diseases like diarrhea, typhoid etc. Water management is a part of our ministry objectives as we need to enhance people development by promotion of better method of acquiring water and sanitation sustainable economy.
