Description

ADB and the Government of Nepal are working together to help the residents of the Kathmandu Valley to obtain greater access to clean water on a long-term basis. The Kathmandu Valley Water Supply Improvement Project is working to improve the efficiency and the reliability of the water supply system in the area while at the same time upgrading the infrastructure at the water source areas through a related project that is constructing the Melamchi tunnel and expanding the water treatment plant This project is expanding reservoirs, capacity and providing water connections with a focus on serving the poor and households headed by women. The long-term goal of the project is to provide affordable, clean water to the people of Kathmandu Valley for years to come.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Kathmandu Valley is heavily populated with more than 10,000 people per square kilometer. The area is expected to have a population of about 3.5 million by 2016. Rapid and largely unplanned urban growth, lack of reliable water sources, and inadequate past investments have resulted in poor quality drinking water in the area, as well as limited access to water, particularly for poor families. The lack of access to clean water has caused an increasing number of people to become sick. The poor have also faced the burden of additional expenses as they struggle to find clean water for their families.
Impact

Sustainable water supply services for residents of Kathmandu Valley

Project Outcome

Description of Outcome

Improved access, efficiency, and reliability of water supply services to residents of Kathmandu Valley including poor women and men

Progress Toward Outcome
The BDS works are being implemented through 4 civil works contracts which include: (i) laying of 76 km of bulk distribution pipeline, and (ii) construction of 10 clearwater storage reservoir tanks (SRTs) with a cumulative storage capacity (74.5 ML). PID informed that to date (i) barring some installation of air valves and interconnections works, entire BDS lines have been laid, hydrotested and disinfected, and (ii) 9 SRTs commissioned. The construction of the remaining SRT at Katunje is in an advanced stage and will be ready for commissioning soon.As for DNI work, the scope under this component mainly includes (i) laying off about 1,010 km distribution pipeline, (ii) installation of about 102,500 metered house service connections (HSC), and (iii) establishment and commissioning of 146 district metering areas. There are implemented under 4 DNI contracts. PID informed that about 1000 km of pipelines had been laid, and 85,000 HSCs are provided (mostly without meters). After the field verification, PID identified a saving of 10,000 HSCs from the original scope. The long-run flow test and commissioning of the DMAs (after demonstrating the NRW achievement of the respective DMA) will be contingent on the availability of the water from the Melamchi river. PID are focusing on (i) complete the remaining 8km pipe laying works and provide 10,000 HSCs within 2022; and (ii) make arrangements for installation of domestic meters and prepare all the DMAs for long run flow test and trial run immediately after commissioning of Melamchi Water River diversion Scheme. PID is targeting to commission an average 120 km of DNI networks with 10,000 metered HSCs every quarter, however this will be contingent to the water availability of Melamchi, which at the moment, is uncertain, due to June and August 2021 flood event.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects
The project is classified as category B for environment. An initial environmental examination (IEE) and environmental management plans including a grievance redress mechanism were prepared in accordance with ADBs Safeguard Policy Statement. The IEE concludes that no significant adverse impacts are anticipated and that the net environmental benefits will be positive and large with fewer waterborne diseases and better public health. To mitigate adverse impacts of increased generation of wastewater, the Kathmandu Wastewater Management Project has been proposed to focus on rehabilitating and expanding the sewerage network and wastewater treatment. An environmental assessment and review framework was prepared to address small components to be defined through detailed design. Additional oversight and mitigation measures will be taken for pipe-laying works along roads passing through heritage areas including permission from the Department of Archaeology prior to construction.
Involuntary Resettlement
The project is classified as category B for involuntary resettlement in accordance with ADBs Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). The project did not anticipate any land acquisition and resettlement plans will be prepared or updated by package if needed. The impacts are limited to temporary disruption of business activities, and temporary shifting of vendors and hawkers during construction works within the right-of-way for the water pipeline works. A resettlement plan, including the grievance redress mechanism, was prepared in accordance with ADBs Safeguard Policy Statement. A resettlement framework was prepared to address small components to be defined through detailed design. Temporary impacts will be limited and compensation for lost income will be provided to those affected as per the resettlement plan.
Indigenous Peoples
No impacts to IPs are anticipated as the project focuses on rehabilitation of the existing water supply network in urban areas. Water will be universally supplied to all households within the project area, and meaningful, widespread consultations will continue within all project area communities.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation

During Project Design
Adequate consultations were carried out with all the important stakeholders during the project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA), fact-finding and post fact-finding missions. The objective of the consultations was to make citizens of Kathmandu Valley fully aware of the intent, design, schedule, impacts, employment opportunities, and overall benefits of the project, with particular attention given to the poor and the socially-excluded sections of the population.
During Project Implementation
A community awareness and participation plan (CAPP) has been prepared to involve key stakeholders for widespread, ongoing, and meaningful participation in project activities. This is especially relevant in a high density urban setting like Kathmandu Valley where disturbances related to construction activities are inevitable. Information disclosure and public awareness are essential for maintaining public support and mitigating grievances during the construction period. A gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) action plan was prepared with clear targets, responsibilities, and resource allocation. The objective of the CAPP and GESI is to make citizens of Kathmandu Valley fully aware of the intent, design, schedule, impacts, employment opportunities, and overall benefits of the project, with particular attention given to the poor and the socially-excluded sections of the population. At the same time, full involvement of citizens can only ensure realization of benefits of many critical activities of the project such as reduction of nonrevenue water (NRW) and improvement of water supply services to citizens including introduction of 24-hour supply. The project activities require coordinated efforts among the executing and implementing agencies and public, private, and community stakeholders. A Community Awareness and Participation Consultant (CAPC) is engaged to help the Project Implementation Directorate (PID) ensure meaningful and ongoing consultations and public awareness during project implementation and specifically to implement CAPP and GESI action plans.
