Cambodia: Urban Water Supply Project

Sovereign Project | 41403-013

ADB is helping Cambodia expand piped water coverage in nine provincial towns. The project will establish a new water supply system in Stung Treng and a distribution zone in Siem Reap, and rehabilitate treatment plants and pipelines in the other seven towns. The project will also support an expansion of water supply networks in Kampong Cham and Svay Rieng.

Description The project will provide additional new and rehabilitated water supply infrastructure and extend system coverage to expand access to safe water in nine towns. The project will also provide piped water supply to an additional 58,000 residents through (i) a new water supply system in Stung Treng, (ii) a new distribution zone in Siem Reap, and (iii) system expansion in Kampong Cham and Svay Rieng. In addition, the project will rehabilitate existing water treatment plants in seven towns. The project interventions will replicate initiatives that made PPWSA successful and build on PPWSA experience. It will also incorporate lessons from previous ADB projects. The project will help the PWW's reduce real NRW levels to below 15% by using improved material and construction practices in its works to complement ongoing NRW reduction initiatives by the service providers and other development partners.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The project will address the problems identified by the MIH in its priorities and strategies for 2013-2018. These are (i) inadequate legal and regulatory frameworks; (ii) the continued dependence of the country's PWWs, except for PPWSA and SRWSA, on financial support from the government; (iii) old production and distribution systems and inadequate human resources; (iv) a lack of financial resources for rehabilitating and developing the sector; and (v) the overall inadequate water supply coverage in the country's urban areas. The project will improve the performance of water utilities in nine provincial towns to give residents greater access to safe piped water supply. It will contribute to the government's target of achieving 100% piped water supply coverage in urban areas by 2025 by (i) rehabilitating and improving existing water treatment plants, (ii) providing new water sources and treatment plants, (iii) augmenting or replacing existing distribution pipelines to increase system pressure and improve service delivery, and (iv) providing new transmission and distribution pipelines. After limited involvement since 2006, ADB is seeking to reengage in and provide long-term support for the country's urban water supply sector, starting with this project.
Impact Expanded access to sustainable and safe water supply services for the urban population in Cambodia.
