Provincial Waterworks Authority of Thailand (PWA) will launch a new e-service for water users to access real time water consumption expenses on the Government Cloud.

The PWA signed a MOU with the Electronic Government Agency (EGA), a G-Cloud provider, to launch the PWA’s “Water-user Service Programme”— a web based service that would allow water users to access and calculate real-time water consumption expenses.

“This programme will provide sustainable benefit to the water users as well as they can continue to benefit from the further e-services that the PWA will leverage in the near future,” said the EGA’s President and CEO Dr Sak Segkhoonthod.

At the same time, this solution will help the PWA to reduce its service cost, he added.

Besides, the PWA will also leverage shared data of citizen identification information provided by Provincial Administration Department (PAD) on the G-Cloud centre.

“The water consumption information will be linked directly with the user database, in which it would allow the two sets of data to be transferred between them easily,” he explained and added that: “This flexibility and integration of data would bring a lot of beneficial prospects to both citizens and public sector.”

The Water-user Service Programme is still under development and will be available for download in the near future.
