Maputo’s water utility AdeM is still evaluating which prepaid meter model is best suited to its water supply system. AdeM’s chairman, José Ferrete, says that the company has received many requests from clients, but they are not being met because the project is still in the pilot phase.
The company responsible for water supply in the capital is implementing the prepaid meters system with the objective of improving rational water consumption, but it will still take some time for the system to cover all customers.
Customers frequently complain that they are receiving bills for periods when they have no flowing water. AdeM [ Waters of Maputo Region] recognises the problem, and asks clients to notify the institution and lodge a complaint so that a solution can be found.
At a recent press conference, the company announced that, at the moment, water is being supplied to most of neighbourhoods for eight hours a day, and that the neighbourhoods in the most critical situation are Machava, Tsalala and Laulane.
