Infrastructure Support

 

Throughout the first year of implementation, KIWASH focused on a methodology of assessing capacity gaps, and designing and implementing relevant training and capacity building activities for its partners in order to make sound decisions on infrastructure investments that will lead to improved business performance and greater access to basic water services across the nine counties.

The investments include:

  • Undertaking feasibility studies and engineering designs on proposed water infrastructure projects
  • Test pumping of boreholes to establish reliable yields
  • Pre-construction water testing to establish water quality
  • Construction of water intakes and installation of water pumping systems
  • Construction of main water transmission pipelines
  • Construction of water distribution pipelines
  • Installation of solar power units for water pumping
  • Installation of water treatment systems
  • Construction of water storage tanks
  • Construction of water kiosks
  • Installation of bulk and zonal water meters
  • Rehabilitation & improvement of existing water supply infrastructure
