February 2007: Cowater Selected to Manage and Implement Small Towns Water Supply Project in Ghana

Cowater was recently selected by CIDA to manage and implement the seven-year, $12 million Northern Region Small Towns Water and Sanitation (NORST) Project in Ghana. The project will provide increased access to potable water and sanitation services to up to 30 selected small towns in the Northern Region (approximately 125,000 beneficiaries) through the design, installation, and capacity building support for the operation of water supply systems and appropriate sanitation facilities. The project will also strengthen local capacity to manage and sustain access to potable water and sanitation services in small towns.
