The works in Dehradun and Nainital is continuation of project 1.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
Dehradun, Haldwani, Nainital, Ramnagar, and Rookee are the largest cities in Uttarakhand. However, water supply and sewerage service levels are not only below the national standards but also the national averages in may of the benchmarks.
The national targets for water supply coverage is between 94% and 100%, at per capita supply level at 135 litter for 24 house , with physical loss at 20%.
The national average for water supply coverage is 81%, at per capita supply level at 123 litter for 4 house , with physical loss at 25%.
- In Dehradun, water supply coverage is 99%, at per capita supply level at 114 litter for 8 house , with physical loss at 40%.
- In Haldwani, water supply coverage is 54%, at per capita supply level at 90 litter for 5 house , with physical loss at 44%.
- In Nainital, water supply coverage is 59%, at per capita supply level at 92 litter for 6 house , with physical loss at 39%.
- In Ramnagar, water supply coverage is 57%, at per capita supply level at 103 litter for 5 house , with physical loss at 40%.
- In Rookee, water supply coverage is 67%, at per capita supply level at 85 litter for 2 house , with physical loss at 60%. Sewerage coverage is 24% but not sewage treatment is inadequate.
These towns are not able to sustain the key urban services because of the core problem that is, the infrastructure is not adequate in terms of size and condition. This is mainly attributed to inadequate new investment and O&M.
|Impact||People, especially vulnerable households, will have increased access to better quality and sustainable urban infrastructure and services in 31 urban towns.|
|Description of Outcome||UDD and UUDSA provide improved urban services in 5 towns.|
|Progress Toward Outcome||Capacity building activities for PIU and PMU staff recently conducted in water supply operations and gender sensitive municipal services planning and provision.|
