Project for Improvement of Water Treatment Plant in Kosti City.

Location : Target regions, facilities Kosti City

JICA Funding : 3.151 (billion yen)

Scope :

Planned implementation period Construction: 39 months, including detailed design work and the bidding period

Specific project details (provisional)

Water facility construction: Water intake facilities, intake pipes, a water treatment plan maximum capacity of 33,000 cubic meters per day using a rapid filtration method), water discharge facilities, water distribution pipes (diameter: 700 mm, length: 760 meters) Training and technical support: Capacity building for water treatment plant operation, maintenance and management

This project will construct water intake facilities, a water treatment plant and related facilities to raise the water treatment capacity in Kosti, a city in White Nile State in the southern part of Sudan.

Kosti City has a river port that connects Sudan and South Sudan and is also a key location for commodity transportation on the route between the Darfur region and Red Sea State, the only state in Sudan having a seaport. Kosti City also has the largest population in White Nile State, approximately 210,000 people (2008), and the population is projected to grow to approximately 380,000 by 2024 due to an influx of displaced persons to the surrounding area from South Sudan and Darfur in recent years. However, the water treatment plant in Kosti City has deteriorated significantly since its construction in 1942. The current average treatment capacity of 10,000 to 15,000 cubic meters of water per day can serve only about 40 percent of the citys population. As the city is unable to meet the demand for water considering the growing population, improving the level of water treatment plant functionality is a priority.
