City of Nampula in Mozambique to invest US$70 million in water supply and sanitation projects

6 June 2012

The city of Nampula plans this year to spend around US$70 million on three projects related to sanitation and water supply, said the city’s mayor during a public presentation of the plans for urbanisation of two administrative areas of the city.

According to Mozambican newspaper Notícias, Castro Sanfins Namuaca said that the three projects were total reconstruction of the rainwater drainage system, construction of a water treatment plant, and improvements to the drinking water supply system.

Meanwhile, the city’s Council can move ahead with its plan to partially urbanise the administrative posts of Muhala and Muatala, in which construction is currently very disorganised and has made it impossible to install buildings for some social services and activities such as drinking water and electricity distribution, as well as access roads.

The main aim of the plan is to reconfigure the areas in order to provide these services and allow the areas to grow in a more ordered manner. (macauhub)
