Assessing Prepay Water Metering in the Informal Settlements of Windhoek
Collecting revenue for water in the informal settlements of Windhoek using the monthly billing system has been problematic. A pilot study is being conducted by the Department of Infrastructure, Water, and Technical Services evaluating prepay water metering as a solution to non payment. This project investigates both metering schemes through professional interviews and community surveys. Information obtained from this research is used to make recommendations for improving the metering systems while ensuring that no one is denied access to water.
