On behalf of Project Implementation Directorate (PID), Kathmandu Upatayaka Khanepani Limited (KUKL), I welcome you to our website.
The Government of Nepal is committed to provide a reliable, equitable and safe drinking water and sanitation services to the residents of Kathmandu Valley. At PID, our multi-diverse professional team is working relentlessly towards completing the construction of water and sanitation infrastructures. In terms of numbers, this entails: approximately 1200 km new pipe network, 9 new water service reservoirs, 150 km new sewerage network, and 5 new waste water treatment plants in different locations in Kathmandu within 2020. This is being implemented under of Kathmandu Valley Water Supply Improvement Project (KVWSIP) and Kathmandu Valley Wastewater Management Project (KVWMP) supported by Asian Development Bank. All the construction works are in full swing.
New investments planned in the subsequent phases will help expand infrastructure works out side of the ring road and other areas within Kathmandu Valley.
Our efforts are aimed at laying the necessary water infrastructures so as to secure safe and sufficient water to every household through 27.5 km long Melamchi tunnel, and ensuring that Kathmandu rivers flow cleaner and faster through treated sewerage systems.
Despite of our hard effort, people of Kathmandu Valley may have to face some inconvenience during the implementation of the projects. As this is the event in a century time, I humbly request the respected fellow citizen of Kathmandu to bear with these difficulties. Through this website, we have attempted to inform and disseminate our works. Should you have any questions or feedback, we very much appreciate and look forward to hearing them.
Thank you for your support, understanding and cooperation.
