Project Description

The Government of Jamaica is seeking to determine the viability of a Performance Base Contract for a Non-Revenue Water (NRW) Reduction Programme. The purpose of the assignment is to establish a replicable performance based scheme for the reduction of non-revenue water (NRW) levels in the parishes of St. Ann, Trelawny and St. James which are situated on the northern coast of the island.

The Investor/Consortium will be required to undertake the financing, operation and management of the water supply infrastructure network within the three (3) parishes impacting some 472,058 residents.

The target is to reduce NRW in this area from the current estimated level of 74% of water supply input down to a maximum of 30% of water supply input by December 2021 via Performance-Based Contract (PBC) between the Investor/Consortium and the National Water Commission.

Expected life of the project:  20 years

Status:  Technical and Commercial Assessment, as well as Business Case preparation
