Kwekwe installs ultrasonic meters at water pumping station.

1 Mins read

Kwekwe City Council has completed some upgrade work at its water treatment and pumping station, which includes the installation of ultrasonic meters to measure the amount of water pumped to users.

Ultrasonic water meters are used for technological measurements of immediate flow rate and consumption in water-supply networks, and storing of the measured data.

An official with the local authority told 98.4FM News that the council has been on a drive to revamp some of its water reticulation infrastructure in a bid to improve the supply of water to residents and other users.

“We have done a rehabilitation of our waterworks. We have put in what we call ultrasonic (water) meters and these are going to assist us to measure the amount of that we pump out of the station to the city,” said Kwekwe city Director of Works Engineer John Mhike.

He added that the city council had been gauging the amount of water being pumped from the station using the ratings on the water pumps and this would not be accurate.

“Now we are able to measure precisely the amount of water going into the city and it is a good intervention that we have done since we can now measure the accumulated pumped water per hour and per day,” Eng. Mhike said.

He said the meters were procured through the intergovernmental fiscal transfers to local authorities.
