TANZANIA : Government inaugurates drinking water project in Zanzibar

mardi 7 avril 2020

Drinking water supply and sanitation works have recently been inaugurated on the semi-autonomous archipelago of Zanzibar in Tanzania. The project has received support from several partners, including China, India and Japan.

Part of the Zanzibar Urban Water and Sanitation Project (ZUWSP-ADF) was officially inaugurated in Saateni in the Municipality of Zanzibar. Ali Mohamed Shein, President of the semi-autonomous archipelago of Zanzibar, came to Saateni for the inauguration ceremony of this project, whose objective is to improve drinking water supply and sanitation services on all the islands of the archipelago.

In the town of Saateni, on the main island of Unguja, six boreholes have been drilled. Each of these facilities is capable of supplying 3,600 m³ per day. The wells are also accompanied by two water storage tanks. The first, with a 2000 m³ capacity, will be built in Saateni itself. The second will be installed at Mnarawambao, with a storage capacity of 1000 m³. The local government has also laid 75.7 km of drinking water pipes and rehabilitated 23 existing boreholes.
