6 th World Water Forum WWF Session on Financing Sanitation Sector ( MED 4.2 Session ) Eng. Nadia Abdou Chairperson AWCO 14th March,2012 Alexandria Water company
Resources Of Raw Water Noubaria Canal Mahmoudia Canal Khandak Canal Drinking Water Canal
Solutions & Projects to Keep Good Resources at Naubaria Canal –TDS Degradation
Preserving the Standard of Turbid Water Quality the Intake of El Seiouf WTP -Water resources of Rond Point,El Seiouf, El Mamoura( El Montaza Canal) and ( Forn El Geraia ) WTP (s) are located on the Mahmoudia Canal. -Manshia WTP is located on the canal emanated from the Mahmoudia Canal in Khourshid area, before being polluted by industrial wastes. -While the permanent analysis of the daily intakes is done according to the standard specifications and the general standards. some specifications of water banks are not complied with the standard specifications. Accordingly, the following corrective actions have been taken:- - In 1988, the intake of Rond Point WTP changed from Mahmoudia canal to a drinking water canal. -In 1990, El Mamoura WTP was supplied with new pipes instead of El Montaza canal which was supplying the raw water from Mahmoudia Canal. -In 1996, new pipes were connected to Forn El Geraia WTP to supply the raw water from the drinking canal.
-It was necessary to expand the drinking canal to provide raw water to the intake to be :1.200000 m 3 / day. -In 2002, all WTP(s) intakes were changed to comply with the international standard specifications and the intakes are automatically purified. -The intake is purified regularly from the accumulative weeds and silt deposits. - A continuous cooperation between AWCO and the Ministry of Irrigation and water Resources to purify the canal annually or when required. Preserving the Standard of Turbid Water Quality the Intake of El Seiouf WTP
AWCO Laboratories -The mission of Alexandria Water Company is to produce a cup of water complies with the international standards. In each WTP, there is a highly scientifically and technically equipped lab responsible for following up the purification process starting from the intakes till the customer networks.In addition, AWCOs Central Lab has the start of art equipments to carry out all the chemical, organic, -(Inorganic), bacteriological and biological analysis. Indicated in the international and Egyptian standards.
- A joint sanitary committee is formed between the Administration of Health Affairs and AWCOs Central Laboratory for withdrawing samples from the networks to determine the validity of the bacteriological analysis. In addition to the weekly random sampling of all the distribution system to assure that water comply with standars. - Since July 2010 till June 2011,58.29 samples have been withdrawn. 925 samples only have proved to be incompatible with a percentage of 1.6 % AWCO Laboratories
water used for washing filters was poured directly down stream El Mahmoudia Canal. But currently, water is poured into drains,and water used for washing filters is monthly analyzed to comply with the standard specifications. AWCO Laboratories
ISO 17025 : 2005 Certificate for AWCO Central Lab, AWCO central lab. has been selected as the first water utility in Egypt during the first international conference SWSSC 2010 held by HCWW AWCO Certificates in Laboratories Sector
Tanks Purification In 1990, a research has been made in AWCO lab tackled 50 tanks in Alexandria, the Chemical, bacteriological & biological researches results indicate that there is a difference between the quality of tanks water and the quality of houses water. A survey has been made to many tanks in Alexandria, and the following problems have been found out : Tanks without covers. Tanks made by breaks, concrete and painted by biotammen which is an unhealthy dangerous isolative material. Corroded metal tanks. Fiberglass tanks polluted by weeds.
Tariff The tariff of AWCO takes in to consideration the poors. It hasnt been changed since 10 years and the government subsidy covers about 70% of drinking water production cost. That, definitely reflects AWCO awarness with the importance of providing all society classes with drinking water to improve standard of the sanitations for all levels of Alexandria people in general
Urban poor areas in Alexandria suffer from lack of sanitary services such as water and sanitary drainage. AWCO provide these areas with water to raise their sanitary level through the following authorities:- 1) AWCO self efforts:- The annual plan of Renewal and Replacement:- AWCO is implementing an annual renewal and replacement plan for the old networks including old pipelines and connections which are made of asbestos or lead with the annual cost L.E 37.000000 AWCO Financing Projects to Improve Sanitary Standards
- USAID ( El Hadara Area ) is an urban poor area. Water has been supplied to this area by the grant of the USAID with the cost of L.E 5 million. - 2)The Grants:- AWCO Financing Projects to Improve Sanitary Standards
3)The efforts of NGO(s) in funding sanitary projects:- - El Tawfikia village has been provided by water for more than 200 families deprived of water with the cost of L.E 350.000. AWCO Financing Projects to improve Sanitary Standards ( conti..)
3)The efforts of NGO(s) in funding sanitary projects:- - El Sernaga village has been provided by water for 30 families deprived of water with the cost of L.E 40.000. AWCO Financing Projects to improve Sanitary Standards ( conti..)
