On behalf of Project Implementation Directorate (PID), Kathmandu Upatayaka Khanepani Limited (KUKL), I welcome you to our website.
The Government of Nepal is committed to providing reliable, equitable and safe drinking water and sanitation services to the residents of Kathmandu Valley. At PID, our multi-diverse professional team is working relentlessly towards completing the construction of water and sanitation infrastructure. In terms of numbers, this entails: approximately 1200 km new pipe network, 10 new water service reservoirs, 45 km new interceptors, and 5 new wastewater treatment plants in different locations in Kathmandu within 2020. This is being implemented under Kathmandu Valley Water Supply Improvement Project (KVWSIP) and Kathmandu Valley Wastewater Management Project (KVWMP) supported by Asian Development Bank. All the construction works are in full swing. New investments planned in subsequent phases will help expand infrastructure works outside Ring Road and other areas within Kathmandu Valley.
Our efforts are aimed at developing water infrastructure necessary to secure safe and sufficient water for every household through a 27.5-km-long Melamchi tunnel, and ensuring that Kathmandu rivers flow cleaner and faster through treated sewerage systems by constructing wastewater treatment plants and installing sewer pipes.
As part of tests aimed at commissioning the new distribution system that will convey water once it is received through the Melamchi tunnel, flushing of Bulk Distribution System pipeline is being carried out before moving on to smaller pipes.
Despite our hard work, people in Kathmandu Valley may have to face some inconvenience during the implementation of the projects. As this is once-in-a-lifetime event, I humbly request respected fellow citizens of Kathmandu to bear with these difficulties. Through this website, we have attempted to inform and disseminate our works. Should you have any questions or feedback, we very much appreciate and look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for your support, understanding and cooperation.
