The director of Mwanza Urban Water Supply Authority (Mwauwasa) Mr Justus Rwetabula said more than 50 per cent of clean water produced is lost due to pipe leakages.

Speaking during a seminar with the Nyamagana district administration on ways to control water theft last week, Mr Rwetabula said the loss was a result of illegal water connection by unfaithful city residents.

The seminar included the district residents with the intention to integrate the society in the fight against illegal connections and enable more people to benefit from water services offered.

“If people will be guarding themselves against water theft, I believe that the percentage will drop over a short period of time,” he said.
