Lilongwe Water Board saves K400m

The Lilongwe Water Board (LWB) has managed to save K400 million within a year that would have otherwise been lost through non-revenue water.

Chief Executive Officer for the Board, Silli Mbewe, said this in Lilongwe during a ‘Lilongwe Strengthening Capacity Project’ (LiSCap) Joint Coordinating Committee meeting.

The project, which started in 2019 targeting 28 percent reduction in non-revenue water by April this year, aims at strengthening the capacity of LWB to reduce the loss of processed water before it reaches the customer.

JICA Malawi Chief Representative, Kazihuro Tambara ,said it is encouraging to note that despite setbacks such as the Covid-19 pandemic, the progress of the project has been positive.

Ministry of Water and Sanitation Principal Secretary, Elias Chimlambe, said the project is a huge milestone in ensuring efficiency in the water boards.
