News:Harare City Council Set To Install Prepaid Water Meters

<vote /> Harare City Council is set to embark on a full scale roll out of prepaid water meters following a successful pilot project. It began the installation in May, as part of a pilot study to determine the feasibility of the gadgets. Speaking after a tour of some suburbs in which the installation of water meters has been carried out so far, Harare City spokesperson Mr Michael Chideme said the authority would soon roll out full scale installations.

Chideme said,

The pilot project we are currently carrying out has proved that prepaid water meters are indeed a great way of conserving water. Financially, prepaid water meters will ensure that instead of defaulting people pay off their bills prior to receiving service which will give us the financial muscle we need to invest back into our water system and thus improve its quality and availability.

The pilot roll out of prepaid water meters was being carried out in suburbs such as Kambuzuma, Letombo, Avenues, Rhodesville and Eastlea among others.
