Supporting Agency: UNICEF, Nepal

Country: Nepal
Location within Country: Kathmandu Valley
Project Period: December 2002- March 2003

The Program:

A study for the assessment of seismic vulnerability of drinking water supply system of Kathmandu was undertaken with support from UNICEF Nepal in 2002. A practical methodology for assessing the seismic vulnerability of the water supply network was developed. Assessment results have been presented in the form of a network system damage scenario. Optimum routes for the most expedient restoration of the water supply services are identified and possible emergency evacuation points are also suggested in view of the water demand in case of large earthquake event.
