The Company and its regulator Athi Water Services Board, recently met officials from French Development Agency (AFD) to discuss proposed water and sanitation projects to be funded by the financial institution.
The overall goal of the projects is to improve living conditions for the inhabit-ants of Nairobi residents by expanding access to drinking water and sanitation.
Others include reinforcement and extension of the sewerage distribution network geared towards the reduction of discharge of untreated effluent as well as building the capacity of NCWSC in reduction of Non-Revenue Water (NRW).
The Company’s Managing Director, Eng. Nahason Muguna, noted that reduction of Non-Revenue Water is a key priority.
“We are still grappling with the issue of Non-Revenue Water which we believe if drastically reduced will help us get the much needed revenue for the Company.” He said Under the component of building capacity in the proposed project, NCWSC seeks a long-term technical assistance towards undertaking a tariff study; design of a remote management system to collect data, training in networks modelling and management of Non-Revenue Water.
The proposed projects will augment the Northern Collector Tunnel Project that aims to tap a new water resource and increase by 140,000 m3/d the volumes supplied to Nairobi city.
