Improvement on The Adequacy of The Water Supply System in Kagongi Sub-County, Mbarara District.
Water is an essential element in life that improves people's health and standard of living, it is very important to provide safe water to people. The people of Kagongi community have ground water up the Rweshe hills as their major source of water and this was made to reach people downhill by gravity. The system is not properly playing its purpose since some tap stands have no water. Due to the fact people have to walk long distances of around 500m which is tiresome to get water. There are some minor sources of water such as seasonal wells whose water is contaminated with faecal coliforms, cow sheet due to running water from different places that convey in those wells during rainy season. Due to limited supply of safe water, people end up using contaminated water for consumption and yet it is really dangerous, this study therefore investigated the cause of low functionality of the water supply system in Kagongi, Mbarara district and provided the measures to improve it. Data collected points out the reduction in the yield of the source, increase in the demand over water supply were the major causes of the intermittent flows in tap stands and inadequate water supply however, measures can be to improve the functionality of water supply.
