A.     Introduction

 Quissanga District, with the district headquarter located about 120km North of Pemba, has been completely ravaged by terrorists in the recent pasts which has destroyed many of the Public and private infrastructures including water and sanitation facilities and has deeply impoverished the life of the people in the community.

Inadequate access to safe water supply and sanitation facilities is a presently a major and key factor contributing to the poor quality of life of the people in this area. Improved access to good quality and quantity water in the areas will be a major determinant of their basic development and well-being.

Quissanga District inhabitants are currently abstracting their water supply from informal and non-approved sources, and few existing water springs and manual boreholes donated by various non-governmental organization in the past. Nevertheless, these supplies are far too low to meet the demand of the people.

The UNDP Mozambique has taken it upon themselves the responsibility of supporting the people of Quissanga District by implementing the water supply initiatives directly from the planning stage to the construction level and handing over safe portable water to the population. 

Based on previous and present studies and investigation carried in the district, it is found that there is adequate groundwater sources in Quilite, a small town, located alongside Rio Quilite. Three (3) boreholes were drilled along this River Quilite while a semi-buried tank and a PT was also installed to provide energy/alimental for the water supply.

A major conducting primary pipeline (adutora) of dimension 250mm diameter class 12 PVC was also sued to transmit water from the boreholes camp in Quilite to the existing semi-buried tank in Quissanga. Along the pipelines, it is expected to connect several PVC pipes of minor diameters to the main pipeline (adutora) to be able to transmit water to the various communities along the Quilite -Quissanga mainline through the Rehabilitation/Construction of community reticulation lines.

 To execute the various water supply project in the district, the activities are divided into 3 phases/lots as shown below: 

1.      Upgrading of Quilite water Source and rehabilitation of water supply to Quissanga and Tandanhangue Communities – Lot I

2.      Construction of Concrete Pressure Towers in Eight (8) communties – Lot II

3.      Construction of Water Reticulation Systems in Eight Communities – Lot III

4.      Rehabilitation of Bilibiza Water Supply System – Lot IV

This particular exercise will involve activities in Lot III above. 

B.     Project Objectives 

The main objective of this project is to improve the water supply to the community by constructing water supply systems that are resilient, durable and will be able to meet the demand of the people for a very period at a minimum of 20 years horizon.
