The Project consists two components: one for physical infrastructure construction and rehabilitation, and the other for institutional reforms and capacity building. Under the physical infrastructure construction and rehabilitation, in Agdash and Goychay, the Project will develop new well fields with 6 new boreholes, and rehabilitate 2 existing boreholes to replace the current water sources; replace the existing water distribution system with new pipes (about 100 km total); and build six elevated reservoirs and treatment facilities. In Nakhchivan, the Project will provide new and reliable gravity-fed trunk mains from the infiltration galleries, build 4 new command reservoirs, and refurbish 6 existing reservoirs, interconnecting them to create a chain at key location for improved water delivery through gravity flow and improve key section of the distribution system. For wastewater the Project will build a system of waste stabilization ponds in all three towns to treat sewage to acceptable level before discharing to rivers; construct about 120 km of new main and branch sewers; and build 4 sewerage pumping stations.
