According to her, at least 65,000 customers will be captured in the network.

She said the data would be for efficient consumption management and to know how much  water is produced and supplied, which he  said would provide information necessary for future tariff studies and the eventual restructuring of customers’ billing

In his remarks, the general manager of the board, Nosakhoro Idenedo Okonjo, advised  journalists to assess the board’s activities for necessary criticism and correction.

The meeting condemned boreholes that were dug close to graves, soakaways, and called  on water corporations to be responsive in the discharge of their duties.
