The project is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) aiming to develop and operate a proposed water treatment scheme for bulk water supply to the capital city of Rwanda, Kigali. Work involves extracting groundwater from the south bank of the Nyabarongo River and then supplying water north to Kigali.
The water treatment scheme comprises a water treatment plant (40,000m3/day capacity), a new reservoir at Kagarama (12,000m3/day capacity), a pump station, and associated forwarding infrastructure. The scheme also involves the development of a well field incorporating existing wells at Kanzenze, in addition to other development actions.
ECG’s scope of services includes groundwater assessment study, well field study, geotechnical investigation, topographic surveys and detailed design for civil works.
