Currently the Agency also oversees the production and supply of bulk water. Bulk water is produced from 4 major sources namely Mzima Springs (Taita – Taveta County), Marere Springs (Kwale County), Baricho Well Field (Kilifi County) and Tiwi boreholes (Kwale County). After production, the water is treated and distributed to four counties, Kilifi, Kwale, Mombasa and Taita – Taveta. The Agency ensure that additional treatment is done at specific points along the transmission pipelines. Quality Assurance is undertaken on a daily basis. This includes Chemical and Bacteriological analysis of water produced and supplied. Thus, water supplied to the Water Service Providers from the Coast Water Works Development Agency is of the highest quality.
CWWDA ensures that the scarce water is fairly distributed to the counties. Bulk meters are used on the major transmission pipelines to measure the amount of water supplied to the respective Water Service Providers in the counties, and this forms the basis of bulk water billing.
