Adjustment of Water Tariffs



Blantyre Water Board (BWB) is informing its valued customers that Government has approved (and gazetted) new water tariffs for Blantyre Water Board effective 1st November 2021.

Since the last tariff revision in 2018, the cost of production and operations has risen beyond the approved tariff resulting in low revenue collection which cannot cover costs. The approved water tariff adjustment will therefore help in ensuring sustainability of BWB's operations and improved service delivery. The water tariff adjustments are as follows:
