    Further, the company explained that there was a scheduled shut down of the Dagoretti and Uthiru pumps at Kabete Water Works Pumping Station.

    "This shut down will facilitate installation of suction mains and delivery headers for Dagoretti and Uthiru pumps at Kabete Pumping Station and commissioning of two new pumps to boost water from Kabete reservoirs to Uthiru Reservoir," reads the statement in part.

    At the same time, the company is working to transport more water to Karen and other areas when the Northern Collector Tunnel water project is complete.

    Some of the estates that will be affected during the shutdown include;
