Kiwasco to adjust its tariffs upwards

Kisumu County residents will have to dig deeper into their pockets to pay for water bills after Kisumu Water and Sewerage Company (Kiwasco) revised their  tariffs upwards.

The Water Services Regulatory Board has approved the regular tariff adjustment for the precious commodity for Kisumu Water and Sewerage Company (Kiwasco).

Through a gazette notice, the board’s chief executive officer Robert Gakubia indicated that for residential and domestic customers consuming between zero and six cubic metres of water, the rates have increased from Sh33 per cubic metre to Sh300.

Those consuming at least 300 cubic metres have had their tariffs increased by Sh10, from Sh130 to Sh140.

Lake Victoria Water Services Board has given a month’s notice to all existing and potential consumers of water and sewerage services in Kisumu on the changes of tariffs.
