As part of LVP II, under the Kampala Sanitation Programme, Phase I, GoU is implementing the construction of:

  • the Nakivubo Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWT) Pat Bugolobi, cap. 45,000 m³/d, comprising two inlet screw pumping stations, mechanical pre-treatment with coarse and fine screens and aerated grit removal, primary sedimentation, aerobic treatment in high performance trickling filters, secondary clarifiers, mechanical sludge thickening, anaerobic mesophilic sludge stabilisation, biogas power generation and mechanical sludge dewatering as well as odour treatment;
  • the Kinawataka Pre-Treatment Plant (PTP), cap. 9,000 m³/d, comprising inlet screw pumping station, mechanical pre-treatment with coarse and fine screens and aerated grit removal and high lift pumping station to convey to biological treatment as well as odour treatment;
  • the sewer extension/reinforcement in Nakivubo Catchment Area (~12 km, DN 225 to DN 1500) and a new trunk sewer in Kinawataka Catchment Area (~18 km, DN 225 to DN 800).
