The nature of the infrastructure scope broadly extends from rehabilitation, replacement and provision of new sewers and potable water pipelines to inspection and maintenance of aqueducts and tunnels. This will also include refurbishment, replacement and provision of new pumping station assets. Non-infrastructure scope includes refurbishment, replacement and provision of new potable water and wastewater treatment assets including service and storage reservoirs.
