Clean water project completed for rural communities in Chingola

Davis and Shirtliff (D&S) officially handed over phase 2 of solar pumping and water filtration system for rural communities in Chingola, a CSR initiative project by one of Davis and Shirtliff's clients but executed by D&S Kitwe.

The aim of the project was to provide safe and accessible water supply to the people in the rural communities surrounding the mine area. The 1st phase involved installing Grundfos borehole solar pumping system to pump water from the boreholes at 5 separate locations namely Shimulala, Kalilo, Kakosa, Helen and Hippo pool.

The water then underwent treatment process through filtration, chlorination, aeration after which it was distributed to water outlets within 200m from the tank which was mostly at health and educational facilities. The water was tested and found to be safe for drinking under WHO standards.

After the success of 1st phase, the mine decided to engage D&S to undertake the second phase whose intention was to carry out works which will involve taking the clean water even closer to the people. This involved installing solar booster pumps and additional tank stands as well as about 7 km of pipe network across the communities.

This project has been completed and now officially handed over to the funders and the community. Access to Water and Energy are one of Africa’s biggest challenges and at D&S is happy to be playing a role in providing services that improve people’s lives and bring about social and economic development.
