Project Details The Songa Commune of the Bururi Provence in Burundi has very limited clean water resources. Currently the local inhabitants walk significant distances to obtain water from small springs and water pools that are not clean. The Project extends the existing Gishingo-Ngandu project located in the Muheka and Musenyi Collines of the Songa Commune. Two extensions will be built. The first extension will connect into the existing pipeline in the Muheka Colline and include one ten cubic-meter tank that will connect to three tap stands at Muturambi located in the Taba Colline. The second extension will connect to the existing tank at the Musenyi Colline and will distribute clean water to two additional tap stands at Myakizimba located in the Muheka colline. A total of 4.25 kilometers of pipeline will distribute clean water to the five tap stands. The tap stands (fountains) will provide access to the clean water source. Throughout the entire project, the pipeline will be buried below ground. Tap stands will include appropriate drainage. The project will serve approximately 1000 additional people from the general population. To view history on all Gazelle Foundation water systems, visit HERE.
