# Update on Water Storage at Wamba

the town supply which is turned on twice per week is continuing to top up the main storage so that in total we have been maintaining a reserve of 60,000 to 80,000 litres.

Since arriving in January, we have been running the electric pump weekly to pump water from our new 60,000 litre storage to the top of the site 30,000 litre storage from where it is distributed throughout the home at Wamba.

We are very thankful that the town supply which is turned on twice per week is continuing to top up the main storage so that in total we have been maintaining a reserve of 60,000 to 80,000 litres.
The materials for the construction of the roof have now been delivered in our pickup to Wamba and the welder and builder are working together to complete the task. When complete the tanks will be shielded from direct sunlight and the storage facility will be completely enclosed to protect from curious children and the occasional elephant which breaks into the site at night. The large roof will also be harnessed to collect water to the tanks
Again, thank you to all who have been praying for the water provision at Wamba. Currently we are sitting on 80,000 litres and with an expectation that we should see some rain by the end of March which will replenish the tanks. We will be monitoring the situation carefully to manage the resource.
