The Kampala Sanitation Program Phase I (KSP) is part of the long term sanitation development Program for Kampala up to 2033, elaborated in the Kampala Sanitation Master Plan study of 2004. It is set to address the most pressing sanitation needs for the capital City (Appendix V). Its main outputs are a refurbished sewerage system including 53,000 m3/d waste water plants, 400 m3/d feacal sludge treatment plants and sewer network and treatment if the effluent going into the Murchison bay. The main plant will generate power and will also treat effluent from the contaminated main channel draining the city before it empties into the lake. The lake is the source of water for Kampala, and surrounding towns and the source of livelihood for many people in Uganda. The program was costed at total UA 64.95 million.
The national goal of Uganda’s water supply and sanitation sector is to achieve universal access to water supply and sanitation services by 2035. The Program specific objective is to improve the living conditions for the 1.4 million people living in Kampala through enhanced access to better sanitation and environmental protection.
The direct beneficiaries of the program will be the population of Kampala which was estimated at appraisal to be 1.4 million and the people living along the nearby shores of Lake Victoria., The program will improve public health in the City and curtail water and sanitation related diseases.
