Welcome to MUWSA
MUWSA is a Government Agency offering water and sewerage services to the Moshi Municipality with a population of about 184,292 people in reference of the National Census of 2012. Like most UWSAs in Tanzania, MUWSA is an outcome of implementation of the National Water Policy of 1991, which promulgated a flexible, autonomous and self-financing water supply and sewerage regime.
This policy proposed an appropriate institutional framework that would ensure establishment of decentralised autonomous entities for the management of water supply and sewerage services in all urban centres. As a result of this policy, and following a number of studies on the financing and management of operations and maintenance of urban water supply and sewerage services in Tanzania, UWSDs were established in 19 regional towns, including Moshi.
These UWSDs were formed in 1994, as semi-autonomous departments under advisory boards namely UWSB’s. In 1998 the UWSDs were transformed into UWSAs as autonomous entities with full operational, managerial and financial powers in accordance with Act No. 8 of 1997 [Ministry of Water: 1997]
