Environment and Technology Foundation (Implementing Agent)

Project Value: R 4 000 000

Duration of Project:┬áJune 2010 – December 2012

 

Project Objective:

Ramotshinyadi is a rural village consisting of approximately 2 000 dwellings and an estimated population of 10 000 residents at the time of the project.
The village of Ramotshinyadi was selected for the following reason:

  • Existing USAID programs including PEPFAR was underway in the village.
  • The village was distinctly rural in nature and of poor social standing.
  • The village was discrete, compact and well defined from a spatial perspective.
  • Insufficient investment in service infrastructure took place.
  • Inadequate water supply and reticulation existed.
  • Water quality issues represented a potential health hazard to the village.

 

Scope of Work:

A tailored water reticulation network was installed in Ramotshinyadi to supplement the existing system of standpipes that were already located in the village.

  • The equipping of 3 new boreholes outside the village due to polluted water being supplied from the existing boreholes.
  • The laying of approximately 4 000m of supply pipe from the boreholes to the reservoir.
  • The laying of approximately 10 000m of network reticulation pipes in the public road reserves in the village.
  • The provision of 58 communal standpipes.
