Online Desk |  5 months ago | local

The Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) has reviewed tariffs upwards, effective this month in response to an increase in costs of key resources.

In a statement, ZINWA said the development is guided by the need to strike a balance between service provision and affordability.

The new tariffs are applicable to both treated and raw water.

For raw water, ZINWA has increased tariffs for commercial agriculture A2 farmers, local authorities and industry from the interim charge of $898 dollars 35 cents per mega litre, to $1 122 dollars 94 cents, while communal farmers will now pay $168 dollars 44 cents, up from $134 dollars 75 cents per mega litre.
