Water and sanitation sector development program (Kericho, Kisii, Nyamira and Litein) – Consulting services for accompanying measures
As the Implementation Consultant of the large investment Program IWSP 1, we are providing comprehensive project implementation and management services on behalf of the Project Management Unit (PMU). The Investment Component aims at improving the physical water supply and wastewater infrastructure in four target Governorates.
The Technical Assistance Component supports the PMU of the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater in the overall technical and financial program management. The investment budget for the program is 272 mEUR covering about 60 singular measures (water supply and wastewater) from Phase 1 to be completed as well as about 70 singular projects (wastewater only) to be prepared and implemented under Phase 2.
For improvement of the water supply services 11 water treatment plants were constructed. The total water supply network implemented has a length of 250 km. In the wastewater sector 10 WWTPs were rehabilitated/extended and two new WWTPs constructed. Rehabilitation/extension of the sewer network covers 676 km of network including 34 pumping stations.

Kaps Dam was partially constructed for irrigation purposes during the 1980s, but not completed. The uncompleted dam is a permanent hazard, as the river diversion using the construction tunnel may not cope with extreme floods with potential serious consequences to the downstream areas, including the outskirts of Gyumri city. The Kaps dam and reservoir are in a highly seismic zone with active faults, with difficult geological and seismic conditions.
The project measures comprise rehabilitation and construction of Kaps Reservoir of 25 million m³ including appurtenant structures (embankment, spillway, diversion tunnel, irrigation tunnel, tunnel for conveyance system). The measures shall allow for the increase of Kaps reservoir at later stage of up to 60 million m³. The main Tasks are
I. Assistance and Coordination in overall Project Steering/Management and Quality Assurance during the entire Project
II. Update of Feasibility Study, Preparation of Detailed Design & Tender Documents (FIDIC Pink Book), Assistance in Tendering
