Water System Operation and Maintenance Manual Creation

Department of Water Resources

Port Vila, Vanuatu

Due Date
9 Mar 2018

Contract Consultant or Firm

Organisation Description
The Department of Water Resources (DoWR) under the auspices of the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, was set up to ensure sustainable and equitable access to safe water and sanitation for the people of Vanuatu to support improved public health and promote social and economic development.
Job Description
In 2017, a ‘National Implementation Plan for Safe and Secure Drinking Water’ (NIP), was approved by the National Water Advisor Council (NWAC).  The NIP is a national framework for achieving Vanuatu’s vision of 100% access to safely managed drinking water by 2030. The NIP defines 2 key implementation mechanisms: (1) ‘Drinking Water Safety and Security Plans’ (DWSSP) which is a community level planning tool and data gathering mechanism that enables the DoWR to plan and implement water infrastructure investments; and (2) the ‘Capital Assistance Programme’ (CAP) which is the financing and procurement mechanism that allows DoWR to deliver water infrastructure projects for communities that have completed a DWSSP.  After the DWSSP, it is envisioned community members will manage their water systems.  The formation of a water committee, plumbers training, and community management training will further strengthen the communities ability to manage their water systems.  After community led design and construction of water system, it is hoped that communities can be left with an operation and maintenance manual that outlines necessary actions to manage their water system. The consultant will create standard Operations and Maintenance manuals for surface water, ground water and rain water supply systems that can be updated specifically for each system constructed.
