CHALLENGE. Laweung is a small village on the northeastern coast of Aceh province that suffered extensive damage from the tsunami of 2004. Among its problems was a decrepit water treatment facility. Residents were forced to obtain water for drinking, bathing and sanitation directly from the local river.

SOLUTION. Contracting with the German disaster relief agency Technisches Hilfswerk (THW), NWC performed a comprehensive rehabilitation of the water supply system. This included restoration of the following:

  • the water intake structure at the river
  • the existing water treatment plant
  • the redistribution reservoir
  • mechanical and electrical systems, including control systems, pumps and 6 km of piping

RESULT. The contract was completed within budget and on time. Laweung villagers now have access to clean water from a water treatment plant operating at a capacity of 20 l/s.
