Abobo (Abidjan) Drinking Water Distribution Network Optimization Project (NRW)

(2022-02-01 - Ongoing Project)

Network optimization that includes:

  •  - Network sectorisation in measured distribution sectors chambers at each sector entrance and exit; with flow measurement
  •  - The pressures control with the installation of pressure-reducing valve chambers;
  •  - Replacement of undersized pipes;
  •  - Network extension in underserved areas;
  •  - Installation of cast iron overhead pipes or buried HDPE pipes with anti-pollution barriers in areas at risk of health hazards;
  •  - Replacement of all connections with new connections and all meters with smart meters
  •  - The replacement of mechanical meters at the outlet of the boreholes with electromagnetic flow meters;
  •  - The installation of a continuous leakage monitoring system on the large-diameter supply pipes;
  •  - Sensitization of the population to ensure good practices are maintained after the work has been completed.
