> The Government of Uganda through a national water-specific company,   is  building  a  water  treatment  plant  in  Katosi  and storage facilities in Nsumba. Both sites are located on the shores of Lake Victoria in Ntenjeru County.

These sites are located about 50 km from the capital Kampala. This is to supply water to the population of the capital, currently of about 2 million inhabitants and which will be 4.5 million in 2025. The started works must be completed in 2021.

The production of drinking water will reach 120,000 cubic meters per day.


Rincent BTP Rwanda performed:

> pressuremeter tests up to 25-meters deep,

> determined modulus, limit pressures and creep pressures of soils.


These elements made it possible to establish a G2 type report in accordance with standard NF P 94-500. The objective was to design the foundations of the structures of the projected works. It is interesting to note that this service involved Rincent BTP Rwanda for the tests on the two sites, Rincent BTP Chad for the tests analysis and Rincent Research Expertise for the technical management of the mission.
