The EMW team learned that PDRD Kampong Chhnang assessed the need for piped water supply in Kampong Prasat for Tonle Sap rural water project, but the project confirmed that they don’t have fund to support this water supply. And the PDRD confirmed the need for this piped water supply. Then, the EMW team has conducted assessment to this village. The water supply situation in Kampong Prasat is bad. All households have used cloudy water directly from the river as mentioned by the PDRD. It has no other alternative source and is a health concern for the people there.

The EMW Cambodia office has been confirmed about the 35,000$ funding for Kampong Prasat piped water supply. With the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model implemented by GRET, the investor will be identified. Then, the qualified investor will invest 50% - 70% of the total investment. The expected total investment for the piped water supply is 105,000$. The piped water supply system will benefit approximately 500 households in Kampong Prasat and Prek Raing villages.

Start Date: 2013-07-31

Technology Used:

The piped water supply system is the most suitable technology for Kampong Prasat and Prek Raing villages because they live along Tonle Sap river where there is flood prone while others such as well drilling and rainwater harvesting are not appropriate. Based on experience well drilling and rainwater harvesting are not sustainable solutions since these technologies are not convenient and time consuming for the population and the water is clean only at the source.

PPP model is applied for this piped water supply system construction and management.
