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, located in the Ndago and Jenda Collines of the Songa Commune and including the Murambi and Muyange sub-collines will consist of a 0.6 liter-per-second source and collection chamber at Murunviriri and connect to two five-cubic-meter tanks and one ten-cubic-meter tank distributed over 4.35 kilometers of primary pipeline. Twelve tap stands will be distributed over 1.75 kilometers of distribution pipeline. 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 2200 people from the general population, including the Kivumu Primary school and Catholic church and the Ndago Pentecost church.
