Serious water issue in Kimbe

The town is on the verge of having no water.

According to Water PNG in Kimbe, the cause of water shortage is due to only three out of a total of seven well bores that are currently operational as the other four were condemned due to contamination and iron bacteria.

The town can hardly survive on three well bores and the problem is worsening by the day with supply capacity drastically dropping by 20 percent per day.
