30 30 WASA / Canadian Consult. started on 18 th April, 2007 Some Goals: 1. Develop a Draft water supply and wastewater policy. 2. Forecast water demands and flows for residential, industrial, agricultural and institutional components. 3. Investigate and document operational and institutional issues and system deficiencies. 4. Evaluate non-conventional water supply sources –reclaimed wastewater effluents, desalination, treated wastewater effluent. 5. Incorporate linkages to other relevant studies e.g. Engineers Report, Maintenance Management System, Organizational Update, Asset and Data Management, National Physical Development Plan. 6. Incorporate the requirements of the RIC and EMA. 7. Provide a high level assessment of Municipalities water and wastewater infrastructure assets. 8. Reviewing supply / treatment redundancy in the water and wastewater treatment facilities and water distribution and wastewater collection. 9. Recommend a 10 year capital program of term visions for both water and wastewater systems. 10. Incorporating the engineering outputs into a financial analysis for evaluation of the fiscal impacts of the developed 10 yr capital program.
