Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Project, Rawalpindi

UWSSP has been initiated to address the water supply and sanitation problems of Rawalpindi City. Water and Sanitation Authority (WASA) was created under the RDA to manage the water supply and sanitation system with the staff base of 900 employees. An organization in its nascent phase, WASA has to address the needs of water users spread across 109,000 domestic and commercial units of Rawalpindi. WASA also has to evolve into a new and progressive organization by an revamping old and inefficient system it inherited from Municipal Corporation. It also has to be self sufficient and viable to cover its financial obligations. An MIS has to be developed to address the needs of an effective service delivery organization including its billing, accounting, inventory, payroll, assets management, and decision support system.

 

Quetta Water Supply and Environmental Improvement Project.

Water scarcity is an enduring problem in Quetta with its steadily increasing population.  Water demands have caused the ground water levels to drop tremendously. Quetta requires intervention to improve its water supply situation. Quetta also lacks a proper waste and sanitation system.  The current practice of discharging untreated domestic and industrial sewage needs to be stopped by providing sewage treatment facilities.

Asian Development Bank has provided technical assistance to BWASA to develop a project covering full economic and efficient utilization of ground water. The problem of sewage and drainage should be handled by developing a proper sanitation and drainage system, including sewage treatment plants and sewage conveying system. This project will be consumer friendly, considering their needs and complaints and provide them with timely services and advice.

FINCON is contributing to the Institutional Capacity Building of NTDC and the preparation of reports as described in the ADB’s TORs and our proposal. As the study is undertaken, the project director will make amendments to the allocated tasks where necessary to respond to reasonable requests of NTDC or ADB. Furthermore, on joint tasks the project director has the right to determine the relative levels of input required by each consultant. However, the project director will as far as possible try to work within the man-months.
