Pursuant to section 57(2) of the Water Act which requires WASREB to issue licenses based on technical and commercial capability, the board has as one of the strategic issues the objective of promoting commercial sustainability of the WSBs and WSPs. To be able to realize this, WASREB will license WSPs based on specific technical and financial criteria. The goal of this is to ensure that the WSPs are capable of meeting routine operation and maintenance costs and have in place proper management for the provision of water services. The criteria is appropriate for the services to be provided by the WSP based on agreed categorization of WSPs. The license is a contractual arrangement between Provider and Customer.
EWASCO held a participation stakeholders’ meeting on 2nd August 2018 requesting WASREB to give a license to supply clean water and safe sanitation to the people of Embu. What this means is EWASCO will have more responsibilities of developing the infrastructure as well as initially carried out by the board unless delegated.
