Client: The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation, USAID & Global
Environment and Technology Foundation (Implementing Agent)
Project Value: R 4 000 000
Duration of Project: June 2010 – December 2012
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.
