Project Description

According to ADB website, 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.

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 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.

This project is associated with a closed project (ADB-41403-012).
