TUWASA is among the Water Supply and Sanitation Authorities in Tanzania mainland that were declared by the Minister responsible for Water on the 1stJanuary 1998; through the powers vested in him by section 38 of Water Works Ordinance 1949 and Regulation 3 (1) of Water Works Regulation published in the Government Notice No. 371 on the 25th July 1997, which recently repelled by act No. 12 of the Water Supply and Sanitation Act, of 2009 through section 9(b).TUWASA performs its duties under the guidance of the Advisory Board of Directors representing Local and Regional stakeholders.
Before their establishment, Authorities formally existed as Urban Water and Sewerage Departments; in June 1996 they were decentralized to semi-autonomous bodies and were allowed to retain the revenues they collect and use these to cover their costs under the direction of the advisory Boards instead of channeling the money to the central Government.
