GPS Coordinates: -11.504411000000(lat), 160.034468000000(lng)
Province: Rennell/Bellona
Ward: Mugi henua
Village: Kagua
Cycle: Cycle5
Nature of Sub-project: Expansion / Extension


Subproject Objective: To provide easy access to clean and safe water to Kagua community, especially for women and children.

Brief Description: Kagua community is a distant village from many services and one of their urgent need is to access safe drinking water. So, the community is proposing to the RDP to rehabilitate an existing water supply for the community from a cave water source inside the village. The design is having a water pump supplying the storage tanks and distributed to the community via polythene piping. The water supply was a failed project funded through RCDF. The basic technical design failed to distribute the water and it is hoped the RDP technical capacity can address it to fulfill its purpose.
