The specific objective of this project is to improve the transmission capacity of Chebara-Kapsoya transmission mainline so as to be able to evacuate the full design potential of the treatment works of 28,000 m3/day and determine the capability of the treatment plant to treat the 34,000m3/day maximum outflow from the dam. This will be achieved by laying a DN 600 new parallel HDPE pipeline from CH 0+ 00 to CH 3 + 300, Construction of an aeration chamber at Chebara treatment plant and DN 500 new parallel HDPE pipeline from CH 37+ 102 to Munyaka Centre. This project will provide great solution to Eldoret town and its environs which currently demand up to 60,000m3/day while the water produced is only 43,000m3/day, leading to cases of intermittent water supply. The existing sources are from Chebara 23,000m3/day and Ellegerini-Kapsoya has a capacity of 9,000m3/day while Sosiani has a capacity of 11,000m3/day. The proposed Augmentation works will improve water supply by an additional 5,000 m3/day which will serve to decrease the current demand as well as increase revenue for Eldoret Water and Sanitation Company (ELDOWAS). The estimated cost of the project is USD 2,913,319.95 (KES 467,587,858.65) which represents the costs for construction and consultancy.
