Mauritius Water Master Plan
GIBB, together with Gibb Mauritius were appointed by Central Water Authority of Mauritius to prepare a Water Master Plan for the Country.
The Master Plan entailed a range of investigations from an assessment of existing water resources to determining water demand management and conservation strategies. This holistic approach was deemed necessary to re-evaluate the entire island’s aging water network taking cognizance of the rapid tourism growth that the country was experiencing.
The project involved assessing the existing situation, updating present and future water demands, reviewing existing resources and infrastructure, modeling of networks and water loss analysis to identify network rehabilitation and new infrastructure options.
The study also focused on the reduction of Non Revenue Water and to this end the major cost of the implementation of the Master Plan recommendations would involve the replacement of old pipe networks over a 15 year rehabilitation programme.
