Water Supply Master Plan for Rarotonga

Country

The Government of the Cook Islands is committed to supplying reliable potable water to all properties connected to the water network by 2015 / 2016. The reliable supply of potable water affords an important opportunity to provide for population and economic growth and the continuing health of local communities.

The Master Plan is intended to: (i) identify the deficiencies in the water supply network caused by deterioration of the existing network, changes in population growth and legislation; and (ii) analyse the deficiencies under current peak conditions and future peak water demand conditions, to determine appropriate solutions and associated costs, which will enable a financial plan to be developed that identifies the costs of the required network upgrades and options for cost recovery.
