Dushanbe Water Supply and Sanitation Project
Funded by the Asian Development Bank, the Dushanbe Water Supply and Sanitation project will improve water supply and sanitation for 352,000 people. In recent years Dushanbe has experienced heightened stress on urban infrastructure services. Increased migration coupled with unplanned urban expansion has rendered the city’s water and sanitation infrastructure unfit for purpose.

During 2021, SMEC led design reviews for transmission and sewerage pipelines, assisted procurement of suppliers, and undertook construction supervision for key elements of the distribution and sanitation systems. A new network management system with smart water meters will be developed by a local company to ensure efficient water usage. SMEC is supporting the asset owners to build knowledge capacity for future operational management.


Moving forward, SMEC will continue to provide project management, design and technical supervision for the project including rehabilitation of the 9.4km sewer collector, which drains most parts of the Shohmansur district. This will ultimately prevent land and water contamination from raw sewerage and improve sanitary conditions across Dushanbe.
