Haiti's public works, transportation and communications ministry (MTPTC) and water and sanitation authority Dinepa have launched a tender for a project to repair and expand potable water service in the southern town of Jacmel, in Sud-Est department.
The 12-month project includes building three pumping stations, a filtration system and a water tower to store 1,100m3, as well as expanding the city's existing 700m3 reservoir and installing 24.7km of potable water pipelines.
Bids must be submitted to Dinepa by May 20, according to documents released by IDB, which is financing the project together with Spanish cooperation agency AECID.
Spain granted US$20mn and IDB another US$19mn in October 2009 to help expand and improve water and sanitation services for around 150,000 people in Saint-Marc, Port-De Paix, Les Cayes, Jacmel, Ouanaminthe and Cap-Haitien.
