Would you pay 50k to be connected to a piped water scheme?
All consumers in a piped-water supply system must be connected to a meter. A water system can only be sustainable if people pay for the water they use. The meter is a reliable way to show how much water has been consumed and how much water everyone has to pay for.
Every piped-water scheme has a minimum number of connections that it needs to work effectively. When a new scheme is created, the government provides promotional connections that people can get by contributing 50.000 UGX. This is a contribution to the development of the piped water scheme: people still have to pay for the water they use. However, after the promotional phase consumers will be expected to pay the full costs of being connected.
B) Yes, but there is no piped-water scheme available in my community
C) No, piped water is too expensive
D) No, I prefer other ways of getting water.
