Feasibility Study on Improvement of Water Supply System in Khulna City

Project Features
The Government of Bangladesh (GOB) aims to achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) in water supply and sanitation, by reducing by half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation.

Khulna, the third largest city in Bangladesh, is located in the southwest of the country and has a population of 1.5 million (estimated in 2008). The present water supply to is mainly from ground water sources drawn from both deep and shallow tube wells.

To cope with current insufficient supply and increasing demand, the Khulna Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (KWASA) plans to construct a new treatment plant for surface water with assistance from JICA. Consequently in December 2008 the GOB requested assistance from the Government of Japan (GOJ) with regard to the improvement of water supply for Khulna.

Scope of Services
The objectives of the study are: (1) to review and analyse national and local policies of water supply and existing conditions in the study area, (2) formulate a long term water supply development program for the study area, (3) to identify priority project(s) and conduct a feasibility study (F/S) of the identified priority projects.

The study covered the Khulna City Corporation (KCC) and Phultana Tana areas, and its surrounding areas in terms of water intake locations, water treatment plants and transmission facilities.
