The city of Bulawayo is the second largest city in Zimbabwe with a population of about one million and is the major industrial hub for the southern region. The region is characterized by poor rainfall and has experienced its worst droughts in living memory. The average annual rainfall is 640mm and water rationing and restrictions have been the means of supply. This research is aimed at finding solutions to the current water shortages and possible ways of improving efficiency in supply and distribution system. The main objectives of the research are to evaluate current sources of supply and to estimate water losses in the distribution. Recommendations were made on ways of improving efficiency in supply and possible future sources were identified.
