Water Resources Management Authority (WARMA) has revealed that it is working on implementing a new system that will allow access to water permits to be acquired faster.
This follows complaints from farmers that the time to acquire water licenses delays hence accessing water for farming purposes becomes a challenge.
WARMA public relations Officer Mubiana Nalweendo told One Love Radio news in an interview that the new system will allow people to access water permits in less than 3 months as compared to the previous six months period.
“It should be clear that when someone applies there is a lot of procedures involved for us to finally handover the water permits, we are beginning to implement a new system which will take two and a half months for someone to apply for a water permit up to the time there are given,” he said.
Mr. Nalweendo further said WARMA will remain resolute to support the agriculture sector and many other sectors that require water.
