Gedaref Water Supply and Solid Waste Disposal Feasibility Study - Sudan
Water supply problems in the Gedaref area of Sudan were found to be complex and serious due to the water source situation and the extensive nature of its service area. One high lift water pump transmitted treated river water to over Z00,000 people through a single transmission line of 68.4 kilometers in length. Residents were receiving intermittent water supplies from this single system servicing a wide corridor in an area over 70 kilometers m length. The purpose of the study involved the following: 1) increase water production and improve existing water systems to satisfy water demands and 2) improve the adequacy and reliability of the solid waste disposal systems.
