Illegal water connections put on notice

12 November 2012, 14:17

Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company (NWSC) is planning to crack down on all illegal water connections in the city, following the huge millions of shillings lost each year on such deals.

In an attempt to make a recovery of all unpaid bills, the city water company has contracted the services of Geomaps Africa; a professional consultancy firm on geometric and Geo-information solutions to help meet this goal.

Following the newly sealed deal, Geomaps is set to collect information on all the city’s meter location, their respective serial numbers and establish the type of usage by the customers - whether domestic or commercial purposes.

On completion of the process, the information gathered would then be entered into NCWS database to generate maps that will be used to monitor each user and determine how the customers will be charged.

By doing so, the company hopes to further reduce the number of unpaid bills which have contributed towards the huge figure of unaccounted losses reported each fiscal year.

In a report issued a week ago to the press, the company also has a plan to adapting modern technology in monitoring their customer’s meter readings.

Just like the KPLC's General Packet Radio Services (GPRS) enabled devices, the company would be willing to employ the same technology so as to have first hand remote transmissions of the meter readings to their designated databases.

Should this materialize, cases of illegal water connections and vandalism will reduce significantly.
