No Comments
Partners in Development were contracted to design and supervise the construction of a rural water supply scheme for a community of 20,000 people. A ground water investigation concluded the potential was low and so the Mzimkhulu River was selected as the source. The project infrastructure included: • Abstraction works on the Umzimkhulu River • A 2.0 Mℓ raw water dam • A water treatment works with capacity of 1.8 Mℓ/day • A high lift (280m) pump station and 3 km rising main in 150 mm steel and 160 mm uPVC • Two booster pump stations and 12 km rising mains in 110 to 160 mm uPVC • 25 km of gravity bulk pipelines • 3.6 Mℓ of reinforced concrete reservoirs ranging from 5kℓ to 900 kℓ • 400 public tap stands • 140 km of reticulation pipe lines • Four water offices
