Mwanza is the second largest city in Tanzania. The city depends entirely on Lake Victoria for its water supply. With the support of grants, drinking water and wastewater treatment plants have recently been built here.
The plants work well in technical terms, but the level of knowledge and organisation of the local drinking water and water management companies are problematic.
In this project, a water partnership has been formed to enable knowledge to be passed on directly from colleague to colleague.
The project focuses on the entire water cycle: drinking water extraction, purification, distribution, customer service, sewage disposal, wastewater treatment and water quality.
Dutch Water Authorities is helping to draw up manuals and guidelines for the wastewater treatment plant, improve water quality and set up a data management system. The knowledge transferred is practical, can be used directly and produces immediately observable results.
