The South Sudan Water corporation received financing from the Africa Development Fund to develop the Strategic Water Supply and Sanitation Project (SWSSIP). SMEC was appointed to undertake feasibility studies, detailed design, tender documentation, and construction supervision to upgrade 121km of water pipework.
The existing water distribution system was fragmented and siloed. Through detailed modelling of the flow systems, SMEC has designed a seamlessly integrated supply network with optimal storage solutions. The entire project was designed on a hydraulic model WaterGEMS therefore network inter dependencies between the existing and proposed systems were easily captured.
Once implemented the project will deliver improved equitable access to sustainable water supply in the project area, improved water system functionality, and improved rural hygiene and sanitation.
