Water Management

The common meaning of water management is the complete circle of water usage from the water source to it being discharged after use.

Aqua Unique is introducing a new green innovative business model for complete and sustainable water management in East Africa. We have the expertise to design and construct the most advanced, high quality and environmental friendly waterworks and wastewater systems. Our services compromise of borehole drilling, water extraction, water storing, water treatment, piped network, rainwater harvesting, dual water treatment with purification of drinking water and treatment for multi-use water and wastewater systems for recycling of greywater and biogas production from blackwater sludge. The innovative design leads to reduced investment and lower
operation cost with remarkable carbon emission reduction and possible carbon credit earnings.

Financing & Joint Venture Co-operation

For large scale projects we can offer to enter a joint venture and finance the majority of the required investment capital against ownership in the water and wastewater network and its operation. The financing options are backed by the IFC (The World Bank), The European Investment Bank, Norfund,Swedfund, The East African Development Bank and The African Development Bank.

Safe water is economic growth

Developing countries with access to clean water and sanitation services experienced faster economic growth than those without.

One study found the annual economic growth rate of 3.7 percent among developing countries with better access to improved water and sanitation services, while similarly; poor countries without access had annual growth of just 0.1%

The water cycle

Water moves constantly around the earth. But it can take up to ten years to replenish ourgroundwater naturally.

When rain falls to the ground, the water does not stop moving. Some of it is used by plants, trees, animals and humans. Some evaporates and returns to the atmosphere. Some flows along the land surface and down to streams and lakes and ends in the oceans.

And some water will take the long journey and slowly trickle down through the layers of soil, sand and clay; meeting in rock formations called aquifers, replenishing our groundwater.

The greatest challenge

One of the world’s greatest challenges is the lack of access to safe drinking water. According to WHO 768 million of people relies on unsafe water causing mortality, diarrhoea, malnutrition and a high number of waterborne diseases. Majority, children living in Africa. Almost one tenth of the global disease burden could be prevented by improving water supply, sanitation, hygiene and management of water resources.
