A significant percentage of the population of Zambia has unsafe drinking water and poor sanitation. Climate change patterns as well as the cost of infrastructure limit the delivery of water, leading to diseases like diarrhoea. In rural and peri-urban areas, girls and women may have to trek long distances to fetch water, compromising the girl child’s access to education and limiting the time women can spend on economic endeavours.
In Zambia, the lack of safe and reliable water supplies affects millions of people; many also lack adequate sanitation services. Countrywide, this has a major negative impact on human health, environmental sustainability and economic development. High population growth, urbanisation, climate change, pollution and inadequate financing together present unprecedented challenges to the provision of water and sanitation services.
Addressing these issues, there are many water and sanitation businesses working in Zambia to ensure the safe, reliable, equitable and efficient supply and service delivery of water and sanitation. Their customer base is made up of Government and development agencies, as well as individual homeowners and farmers.
As Infobwana, we have profiled a number of companies that provide a wide selection of water and sanitation services in Zambia.
Mobile toilets, also referred to as portable toilets, are usually hired out rather than purchased as their use is temporary - from a small intimate outdoor party to a large scale music festival. Construction companies and public facilities may also hire mobile toilets for their sites. Whatever the occasion, mobile toilet businesses supply according to individual requirements.
On request, companies may provide site toilet attendants to make sure toilets are kept spotless.

Companies that plan and design the most adaptable water supply and sanitation solutions offer a range of consultancy services including:
The whole process of getting water from source to its point of use requires planning, design and precise implementation, whether for a home, a factory or anything in between. Various companies in Zambia are available to design and develop full water reticulation systems. They may also repair both plumbing and electrical aspects of existing systems.
In Zambia water tends to be stored, as supply lines may be erratic. Household water use, commercial food and beverage preparation, agriculture and irrigation, fire suppression, and industrial manufacturing may all utilise water storage tanks to streamline water delivery.
Water storage tanks and containers come in all shapes, sizes, and configurations, and are usually plumbed into the water reticulation system. The size and specifications of the tank will vary based on the application the tank is being used for and the daily water demand of the home or business.
Institutions responsible for delivering water treatment and sanitation services can be public, private, or cooperatively owned and managed entities. They can also be a collaborations between these sectors. Service providers here establish, maintain, and upgrade the water supply system, which typically involves: collection, treatment, distribution, quality control, waste water handling, and sewage.
