Tatu City’s water company ranked No. 1 in Kenya

Tatu City, 6 October 2022 – The Water Services Regulatory Board has ranked Tatu City Water and Sanitation Company (TATUWASCo) as the leading privately owned water utility company in Kenya. TATUWASCo supplies water to residents and businesses at Tatu City, the 5,000-acre new city on Nairobi’s doorstep.

The regulatory board, or WASREB, based its ranking of private water providers on key criteria, such as water coverage, drinking water quality, hours of supply, personnel expenditure, operations and maintenance cost coverage, revenue collection efficiency, non-revenue water, staff productivity and metering ratio.

Through the Water Act 2016 Section 72 1 (a), WASREB is mandated to license water service providers like TATUWASCo and prescribe national standards for the provision of water services.

“We are delighted with the result, which is a demonstration of our commitment to our valued customers,” said Caroline Cheptoo, Water Infrastructure Manager at Tatu City, noting that TATUWASCo supplies a range of end users, from schools to homes to some of the largest companies in the region.

Located just 30 minutes from Central Nairobi, Tatu City has two schools – Crawford International and Nova Pioneer – which educate more than 3,000 students daily, thousands of apartments by Unity Homes and family residences in Kijani Ridge. Roast by Carnivore, a restaurant by Tamarind Group, the country’s leading hospitality operator, is open at the entrance to Tatu City. Eneo at Tatu Central, Tatu City’s first commercial office and retail complex will be completed in 2023, with CCI Global as its anchor tenant.

Kenya’s first operational Special Economic Zone, Tatu City, has welcomed more than 70 companies to its business-friendly location, including Dormans, Copia, Cooper K-Brands, Grit Real Estate Income Group, Twiga Foods, CCI Global, Freight Forwarders Solutions, Friendship Group, Davis & Shirtliff and KWAL.
