The project will run to Spring of 2020 and will deliver feasibility studies, conceptual designs and tender documentation for the 35 developments. These will be funded by various donors under coordination from the African Development Bank. The developments are to be delivered by a Design & Build Contractor and will enhance the resilience of the Freetown City Water Supply through diversifying water supply sources and improving and expanding existing infrastructure.
