4.1 Regional Water Supply Schemes
Three of directors of the company were directly involved in the implementation of the World Bank Assisted Multi-state Water Supply Project from the inception to completion for Ikara, zonkwa and Kwoi towns in Kaduna State. The scope and activities involved in each of the scheme is discussed below:

Regional Water Supply Scheme (Ikara in Kaduna State)

The scheme involved the supervision of the design and installation of 7,110-m3/daytreatment plant to serve a population of about 50.000.

Regional Water Supply Scheme (Zonkwa in Kaduna State):

The system was re-designed to produce 12,000 m3/day. The use of the spring water source provided a cheaper option. The system was adequately designed to meet the water demand for the year 2005. The estimated cost was $16,400,000.

Regional Water Supply Scheme (Kwoi in Kaduna State)

The project consisted of the construction of a weir across River Gurara, pumping station and a conventional water treatment of about 6,500 m3/day. The scheme also consisted of 14km of 350/400-mm transmission pipeline, system storage and 75 km of distribution network up to 400 mm
