Master Plan 5 WSPs
The Specific Objective of the Consultancy Assignment was to prepare Water Distribution Network Master Plans (including Technical, Economic and Financial Feasibility Studies) for the 5 Water Services Providers (WSPs) served by the Bulk Water Supply System in Mombasa, Kilifi, Kwale and Taita Taveta Counties.
These Distribution Network Master Plans will provide indicative parameters for the absorptive capacities of water distribution infrastructure of the 5 WSPs to accommodate the additional water available on completion of various Bulk Water Supply Projects planned for implementation in the region including the proposed Mwache Dam.
The Scope of the Assignment was as follows:

• Estimation of the Water Supply Resources available to each WSP including the proposed Mwache dam, existing sources (Mzima, Baricho, Tiwi, Lumi and Marere) and other future sources up to the planning horizon years 2020,2030 and 2040;
• Preparation of prioritized Distribution Network Investments for each WSP and scheduling and assembling prioritized capital investment packages;
• Preparation of preliminary designs and cost estimates for the proposed investments;
• Economic and Financial Analysis for the identified investments to establish their feasibility;
• Stakeholder Consultation Workshops for each WSP and presentation of the draft Distribution Network Master Plans;
• Preparation of an Implementation Log Frame for the investments in each WSP;
