The Katosi Water Treatment Plant Insight

The Katosi Water Treatment Plant uses the ‘’Dissolve Air Floatation’’ technology that is more suitable for raw water with algae and low turbidity.

Through the floatation process, they remove impurities and filter the clarified water through sand filters. After this process, they disinfect and supply the water to the distribution network.

In particular, the plant has a very low footprint, uses fewer chemicals in the treatment process, and uses less power. This is majorly attributed to the high-efficiency process and equipment.

They secured the financing of this project back in 2011. Then the preparation of the Kampala Water Supply Master Plan between 2012 and 2014 followed that.

In addition to that, the Project Feasibility Study from 2013 to 2015.

Procurement of the Consultant to prepare Conceptual designs and Project Supervision happened in 2015.

They eventually prepared Conceptual Designs and Yellow Book Tender Documents for the project between 2016 and 2017. Acquisition of the works contractor happened between 2017 and 2018.

They commenced the construction process in August 2018 and substantially completed in March 2021.

The Katosi Water Treatment plant has undergone successful commissioning over the last three months and is currently supplying treated water.

The areas it supplies include Eastern, Northern, and Central parts of the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area.
