Blantyre Water Board (BWB) has warned that in the next 12-months it will start a water disconnection campaign to all its customers who still have longstanding bills.
From the time being, the board has given a chance to some of its customers who are willing to pay before the grace period ends saying those that won’t pay within 12 months will face permanent disconnection.
“Blantyre Water Board is hoping to collect debts which have not been accumulated for a long period,” said the board`s spokesperson, Priscilla Mateyu.
Mateyu continued to say that the board introduced prepaid metres in some areas in Blantyre city as a way of collecting longstanding debts.
The board is said to have projects coming ahead which among of them is to tap water from Mulanje to meet the demand for water supply in the commercial city of Blantyre.
