  4. Rehabilitation and expansion of the water treatment systems of Banfora and Niangoloko.

Further phases (depending on availability of funding) in the following order of priority

  1. Energy saving measures by using hydraulic power for the water treatment system in Banfora and through solar energy production for the existing boreholes;

Service description: 

Engineering services

  • Technical assistance, project management and in particular management of disposition funds;

  • Management of works (DD, ESIA, TD, procurement support, works supervision) for the implementation of phase 1 measures;
  • Development and implementation of an energy saving and operational cost reduction programme for drinking water production and distribution infrastructure in the 16 programme towns.

Accompanying measures

  • Development and implementation of hygiene awareness campaigns in the 2 towns and villages concerned in this phase (Banfora, Niangoloko and the villages along the water line) aiming at appropriate and sustainable use of drinking water and sanitary facilities through behavior change (promoting the value of drinking water, establishing customer service costs and their sustainable recovery, management and maintenance systems for sanitary facilities etc.);
  • Development and implementation of operation and maintenance plans (outlining the management model) for rural water supply systems connected to the water line from Banfora to Panga and from Panga to Niangoloko in the south and to Soubakaniédougou in the north;
  • Monitoring these two preceding measures through carrying out two surveys: one at the beginning of the programme in order to specify the current status and another one at the end of the programme for measuring the impact of these measures, especially on public health (first measure) and on sustainable facility management (second measure).

The main objective of the programme is to provide the underequipped small and medium towns of the programme region with a sustainable and appropriate infrastructure for water supply and sanitation which is operational during the whole year.
