Gweru City Council Defers Smart Water Meters Project
Gweru City Council has suspended its plans to introduce prepaid water meters this year as the local authority grapples with financial challenges.
This was revealed by Town clerk Elizabeth Gwatipedza who said that the council has a more pressing issue, that is, acquiring water pumps for an alternative water reservoir to Gwenhoro Dam. She said:
Prepaid meters are expensive, and it’s better that we concentrate on buying pumps for Amapongokwe Dam.Feedback
We had planned to roll out the prepaid meters this year, but have now decided to indefinitely postpone the project. We will introduce them (prepaid meters) at the right time.
In 2017, the local authority also shelved plans to roll out prepaid water meters. The City said then, that it wanted to ascertain the performance of the water meters from other local authorities who had already introduced the gadgets.
