Managing director of ELDOWAS Peter Biwot began the revenue mobilization month on Monday, September 19, 2022, and the amnesty is a part of it.
Speaking at the campaign’s debut, Biwot said it aims to reduce the significant Non-Revenue Water (NRW) costs the company faces every year.
“Our non-revenue water is already at 39%, costing us Ksh450 million year despite the high production costs. Although sewer pipes are in operation, many individuals are using them for free’‘. He spoke.
”We have issued out an amnesty to anyone with an illegal connection .We have forgiven them. Those that come out we will formalize and ensure they are connected well”. He added
Eldowas is expecting to recover about Ksh650 million from consumers who have not paid their bills in the last ten years in addition to making sure that all unlawfully connected water and sewerage lines are regularized.
He also mentioned that they intend to repair at least 15,000 water meters that have been recording zero bills in order to improve revenue collection.
