City Council increases water production

Harare (New Ziana)– The Harare City Council has increased water production by 60 percent, a development expected to ensure that all suburbs receive adequate supplies, an official has said.
Acting town clerk, Phakamile Moyo said the improved water output will see previously dry suburbs getting water supplies.

“We have increased our water production from 220 megalitres, an average of 220 megalitres in 2020 to an average of 350 megalitres per day, however this has not reflected in an increase in high revenue collection, our water coverage has increased from about 40 percent to 65 percent,” he said.

“This means that there are suburbs which had not been receiving water and have started receiving water.”

He also encouraged residents to pay their bills.

The council reportedly uses USD3 million per month to buy chemicals for water treatment, however 60 percent of the treated water is wasted through burst pipes.
