Karakol Water Supply Project (Kyrgystan)

The city of Karakol suffers from contaminated drinking water (causing the spread of epidemic disease) and serious leakage problems; the entire water supply system requires urgent rehabilitation. The project essentially involves rebuilding the drinking water treatment plant and the most damaged part of the distribution network, as well as ground-water pumps. The project also calls for strengthening the technical, organizational and financial management of the Water Supply Company and increased involvement by civil society in the process. The goal of the project is to provide the city’s 64,000 inhabitants and some neighbouring districts with a safe and uninterrupted supply of drinking water.
