ABSTRACT

The Nvene water supply scheme study is undertaken to highlight the salient features that should be conceived and implemented in the analysis and design of functional, reliable, clean, safe and economic drinking water facilities. Surveys carried out include hydrological/topographical surveys, geotechnical investigation, aquifer characteristics and water quality analysis. This research investigated the benefits realisable from the application of computer programming as an alternative analytical tool for engineering analysis of complex systems. Water production facilities designed include spring water collection works, water treatment units, and pipeline aqueducts. Economy in construction of capital projects could be achieved through comparative analysis and costing of alternative systems, taking into consideration the medium and long term operational and maintenance costs associated with the management of water supply schemes.
