Rehabilitation works for the system was aimed at the expansion of water supply in Chavakali and Mbale towns and their neighbouring communities.

The project entailed a new raw Water Main to augment the existing one. In the treatment works, a new composite filtration unit of capacity 500m3/day, chlorine dosing tower and staff houses were constructed, in addition to installation of a new 100m3 steel backwash tank, rehabilitation of the existing treatment units and

houses (pump house, staff house and administration and laboratory building).


The system was also installed with two duty pumps, one pumping to Chavakali tank and the other to Mbale tank and one pumping to backwash tank. An existing pump was put on the standby for the duty pumps in case of any mechanical failure in any of the two. To enhance water storage, two new 250m3 pressed steel elevated tanks were constructed, one at Chavakali and the other at Mbale.

The existing two 100m3 steel tanks each at Chavakali and Mbale were also rehabilitated. An extra additional distribution network of 4.5km was added in Chavakali and Mbale, while the existing distribution was rehabilitated to serviceable standards.

Volume of water produced viz-a-viz old production:
Initial combined production for the two existing systems ranged between 1200 to 1500m3/day. The new project has enhanced the production of the systems to 2500m3/day. The Composite Filtration Unit has further boosted production by another 500m3/day. Current total production is approximately 3000m3/day.

Beneficiaries:
Consumers at the onset of the project was approximately 2,300 connections (with 200 metered among them) accounting for 29,000 heads. Upon the completion of the project, anticipated connections from the new lines and improved system will be 550; consequently the population served is expected to rise by 4000 heads; from 29,000 to 33,000 people. The service will be through individual connections and water kiosks, the project also entailed construction of ten water kiosks within Mbale and Chavakali
