The License

Role of WASREB in Licensing Water Service Providers (WSPs)

The Water Act 2016 under Section 72 (c) gives WASREB the mandate of setting licence conditions and accrediting Water Service Providers.  The Licence is therefore a statutory requirement which gives the WSPs the power to provide water services in the Counties.  As a tool for regulating the sector, the Licence sets out the conditions and targets of performance to be observed by WSPs to ensure quality in service provision.

WASREB has revised the Licence document into three categories namely;

1. Licence for the Commercially Viable WSPs
2. Licence for Small Scale WSPs
3. Licence for Bulk Water Supply

Find the Licence Guidelines 2023 below;
