Wastewater Reuse and Water Harvesting For Irrigation Study is designed to prepare an irrigation project based on these two approaches (waste water reuse and water harvesting). Indeed, the development of agriculture in Botswana is hampered by a number of challenges, the most significant of which is limitation in water resources. The present study should collect necessary information and carry out analysis to determine the viability of using waste water for irrigation. This study should also assess the amount of water that can be produced from treatment of the available waste water in the urban areas of Gaborone, Lobatse, Selebi-Phikwe, Serowe and Tonota, and the cost of such treatment, in order to render the water suitable for crop production. In addition, it should assess the feasibility of extracting water from the sand rivers of Shashe and Motloutse, for irrigation. The study outputs should include: i) a feasibility study report of the proposed project; and ii) Detailed Designs Report and Draft Bid Documents.
The objective of the study is to prepare for implementation, an irrigation project based on both wastewater reuse and water harvesting, covering the identified projects areas of Glen Valley in Gaborone, the urban areas of Lobatse, Selebi-Phikwe, and Serowe.
The main beneficiary of this study is the Government of Botswana.
