Project Description

According to the bank website, "Tranche 2 will enhance urban water supply and sanitation infrastructure; and improve water resource planning, monitoring and service delivery in four coastal towns (Kundapura, Mangalore, Puttur, and Udupi). The rapid pace of economic development and urbanization of the coastal region of Karnataka has put considerable stress on the existing urban water supply and sanitation infrastructure. The groundwater table is shallow and contaminated by saltwater intrusion. The coastal towns should promote the efficient and sustainable use of water by reducing nonrevenue water, expanding water treatment capacity, improving storage facilities, and extending more connections to end-users. The sewerage system of Mangalore requires immediate rehabilitation and upgrading to enhance the capacity of the pumping main and expand coverage. To offer improved water services, urban local bodies (ULBs) must enhance their technical and financial capacity. Climate adaptation measures are required to protect this ecologically sensitive region from climate change impacts."
