The existing water supply scheme in Zalingei comprises three (3) borehole fields, transmission systems, elevated reservoirs and gravity fed distribution network. The distribution network is composed of pipelines of varying materials and sizes. The much of the water supply infrastructure in the existing scheme is old and deteriorated beyond repair. As such, UNOPS intends to design & construct a new water supply system to replace all existing water supply scheme in the town to provide better water supply coverage for existing and essentially prioritized areas of the town.

The map shall show all main features of the area surveyed including, but not be limited to surveyed sites, TBM’s and any other important data including true orientation of data surveyed.

•Produce and handover to UNOPS soft copies of all pipelines surveyed in AutoCAD or similar surveying drafting software, drawn to the scale specified, showing longitudinal section of each pipeline with flat plan and clearly marking North along with 3 sets of hardcopies printed in A3 scale. All electronic copies shall be prepared in such a way that pipeline from one node to the other (or to more nodes) shall be in one electronic file. Further, all electronic files and all drawings printed shall show the true North (UNOPS will submit a sample template to the selected contractor in this respect.) and true orientation of the pipeline route starting point to the end on a site plan, with corresponding running distances (RD) are marked..
