Abstract: Mwanza Urban Water and Sewerage Authority (MWAUWASA) has been encountering a lot of challenges, which includes inter alia, the still high UfW, great outstanding balances by debtors, high power costs, underdeveloped management system and low sewerage network coverage. This lead to the need to improve utility management and thus the urge of the organisation to participate in the Water Utility Management & UfW project. One of the issues addressed is the developing of Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) to guide the organisation in its performance including reduction in UfW. This required the organisation to address the four key questions: where are we now, how did we get here, where do we want to go, how might we get there, and how do we ensure success. The newly established District Meter Areas (DMAs) is one of the effective strategies of reducing unaccounted for water (UfW) through Measurement-Validation-Identification- Rectification cycle. The project has indeed left MWAUWASA with the in-house capacity for long-term planning for further development and sustainability.
