The newly developed setup as tested in the pilot–referred to as modular building in this paper - is a small network of prepaid water kiosks fitted with a mechanical prepaid device. The system itself is adaptive: it can grow or decrease in size depending on the uptake or changing demographics. Thereby creating the ability to optimize the business case during the operational phase. Moreover, the system as a whole is sized based on field monitoring of existing water points in rural settings – ensuring an optimum balance between service levels versus costs.
