ABSTRACT

The present study on the management of community drinking water networks in Cameroon aims to analyze, using efficiency indicators, the performance of five community water supply networks in the municipalities of Ndu and Kumbo in the North West region, Bandja in the West region and Efoulan and Zoetélé in the South region. The analysis of the said networks was done using technical and financial indicators: primary yield, rate of unpaid invoices, linear distribution loss index, average annual rate renewal network and the maximum connection opening time for new subscribers. The analysis of financial performance was done through the analysis of annual revenues, leading to the conclusion that these six indicators are important for analyzing the performance of community water supply networks. The study demonstrated also the strong influence of overall water consumption, the linear water loss index and annual turnover on the overall performance of the community water supply network.
