About Us

Welcome to KUKL- PID

Government of Nepal has accorded a high priority to the task of providing safe and adequate drinking water in an equitable manner to the people of Kathmandu Valley. Residents of Kathmandu valley have been suffering from the hardship caused due to lack of adequate and safe drinking water for a long time.The Government started Melamchi Water Supply Project in December 2000, to solve the chronic drinking water shortage in valley on a sustainable manner.

Melamchi Project envisages 510 MLD water to Kathmandu Valley from Melamchi, Yangri and Larke Rivers of Sindhupalchowk District. Phase 1 of the project will bring in 170 MLD by September 2017, when the 26 Km diversion tunnel from Melamchi to Sundarijal is completed.The water available from this project will be treated at Sundarijal- Water Treatment Plant (WTP) which is currently under construction. As per Government plan, the treated water will be supplied to the nine Service Reservoir Tanks (SRT), located at different places of Valley through Bulk Distribution System (BDS).These reservoirs will supply water to household via entirely new distribution system called Distribution Improvement Improvement (DNI). Initially, the Melamchi Water Supply Project was designed to implement all of these activities under the umbrella of the Melamchi Water Supply Development Board, but later in February 2008, the project was divided into Subprojects 1 & 2 for its efficient implementation.

Message From Project Director

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.

Er. Rajendra Sapkota 

Project Director

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.
