Item Open AccessDesign and Implementation of an Automated Prepaid Water Meter: Case Study of National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC).(Kabale University, 2022) Akankwasa, John BoscoThe water billing systems currently available in the Ugandan market still incurs costs of reconnection in case of a disconnection, when a client clears the arrears. For example, if a client does not pay in time, a utility officer moves to the point where the water meter is located and disconnects the client to stop having access to water. The same applies to reconnection when a customer clears. This research seeks to solve inconveniences by automating the system. If a customer uses up their credit, then water flow should be stopped instantly. Likewise, if a customer pays the bills, they should access the water instantly. In this way, costs involved in disconnection and reconnection are minimised.
