The main activities of the project cover: (i) the pipes; (ii) civil engineering; (iii) pumping stations; (iv) power lines; (v) booster stations; (vi) water intakes; (vii) laboratory equipment; (viii) equipment; (ix) technical assistance; (x) training and (xi) supervision of the work. The project is scheduled to be completed over a period of 4 years at a total cost estimated at UA 49.80 million.
The project aims to increase the efficiency and profitability of the sector, to improve the quality of water service, and to increase the level of service in the project area which is home to about two million inhabitants. The project will make it possible in normal times to meet the water demand in the centers concerned until 2012-2020, to ensure a regular supply to Marrakech and Tangier, to better control the water quality, and to prepare the implementation of appropriate sanitation systems by carrying out studies in nine centers.
