As of mid-March, significant water shortages have been reported in the capital of Bangui. According to residents, many people are forced to wait for hours at water collection points. Local health officials have also warned that there is a risk of waterborne diseases spreading due to poor water disinfection practices. Initial reports indicate that shortages are being caused by breaks in the main pipe connected to the water treatment plant for Bangui. It is unclear when the situation will be resolved.
Individuals in Bangui are advised to monitor developments to the situation, be prepared for water cuts and maintain additional supplies of bottled water, limit water usage (including flushing toilets), and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
