Sanitation strategy and master plan for Kampala/ Uganda

DESCPRIPTION OF PROJECT
Access to effective sanitation in Kampala, like in many African cities, is limited and is not keeping pace with the rapid rate of urbanisation and industrial growth in the city. Less than 10% of Kampala residents are currently served by a public sewer with the vast majority reliant on various forms of on-site sanitation of variable quality and effectiveness.

The masterplan included 3 principal objectives. Firstly, define realistic design criteria for an integrated sanitation system with special regard to institutional strengths and weaknesses, community preferences as well as environmental considerations (e.g. protection of Lake Victoria). Secondly, identify areas where on-site sanitation proves the most economic and appropriate solution and, thirdly, develop alternate solutions for on-site sanitation systems or a centralised water-borne sewer system.
PROJECT COMPONENTS AND
TECHNICAL DATA

  • Capacity of existing sewage treat-ment plant: 10,000 - 15,000 m³/d
  • Survey of some 10,000 households
  • 45 Focus group discussions
