The project aims to provide reliable water supply to the 10,100 residents of A’llar and Saida towns in Tulkarem District. This will be achieved through construction of main pipelines, reservoirs, boosters; internal water networks and house connections. Towards completion of this project, 1800 new households will be able to enjoy a reliable supply of fresh and potable water. Moreover, this project will increase the per capita water consumption to 100-110 l/capita/day which will improve the overall well being of the population and contribute towards their resilience and to the overall development of the region.

The overall aim of the project is to provide reliable water supply to the 10,100 residents of A’llar and Saida towns in Tulkarem District.
