“Over the last 3 years, Kericho Water and Sanitation Company has benefited greatly from use of WaSHMIS modules.The CIS App was used to identify customers in low income areas in DMA C, then later applied across the entire service area. The tool enabled us to identify illegal connections in the area, faulty water meters and after carrying out corrective actions, NRW reduced from 58% to 45%. Revenues in DMA C have equally gone up on a monthly basis. Further, the main meter locations within DMA C were fitted with sensors which send in readings on real time basis. Through monthly bulk meter readings, we are now able to do water balance calculations for the first time. From Minimum Night Flows we have realized that turning off water at night is helping bring down NRW even when physical losses have not been fully tackled.”
‘In 2017, Muranga Water and Sanitation Company used WaSHMIS Collect App to collect customer and connection data in Maragwa, a low income area. Analysis of the collected data enabled us to identify illegal connections, faulty water meters and ultimately reduce NRW. Monthly revenues went from KES 300,000 to KES 1,300,000 after implementation of the corrective actions. The main water treatment plant was fitted with a smart meter which sends in readings 24/7 thereby enabling us to understand water consumption patterns within our network."
