The Urban Drinking Water and Sanitation Policy 2003 of GoK focuses on raising the levels of efficiency in the management of drinking water systems in urban areas so as to give satisfactory service to the citizens. The policy emphasizes on full cost recovery and private sector participation for bringing in efficiency in the system. It is envisaged that this policy would facilitate implementation of the sector reforms and subsequently achieve the long-term vision of providing high quality and sustainable water supply and sanitation services in all the ULBs of Karnataka.

|24/7 water supply project for Davanagere, Harihara, Ranebennur and Byadgi through water operator, and also proposed in another 4 towns under Tranche 2|
|Sewerage/STP projects for Davanagere, Harihara and Byadgi, and also proposed in another 3 towns under Tranche 2|
|Utility based professional management models promoted through performance based management contracts and establishment of pilot SPV for water supply|
The programme “Karnataka Integrated Urban Water Management Investment Programme” (KIUWMIP) aims to institutionalize mechanisms in the urban context which contribute to managing increasingly scarce water resources in a holistic and sustainable manner. Investment support will be provided to modernize and expand urban water supply and sanitation (UWSS) while strengthening relevant institutions to enhance efficiency, productivity and sustainability in water use. The program is titled “Jalasiri”.
Accordingly, Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a Multi-tranche Financing Facility (MFF) on 28 March 2014 for KIUWMIP. The initial tranche of the Program signed on 30 December 2014 is under execution in following towns – Davanagere & Harihara in Davanagere district; Ranebennur & Byadgi in Haveri district; and second tranche is under planning in following towns - Mangalore & Puttur in Dakshina Kannada; Udupi & Kundapura in Udupi district. It is proposed to roll out Tranche 2 by end of 2016.
The impact of Tranche 1 project is towards improved and sustainable water security in selected ULBs located in the Tungabhadra river basin in Karnataka, targeting a population of 667,905 living in Davanagere, Harihara, Ranebennur and Byadgi. The impact of Tranche 2 is expected for benefit a population of 708,348 living in Mangalore, Puttur, Udupi and Kundapura.
The key outputs as part of the investment program are presented in the chart below.
|Technical Improvements||Management and Governance Improvements||Customer Service Level Improvements|
|24x7 water supply||Computerised customer database||Customer Service Cell|
|Increasing house service water connections||Metering and Volumetric tariff||Simplified water connection procedure|
|Increasing household toilets||Sanitation charges||Improved service delivery – quality/ quantity|
|Increasing sewer house connections||Ring fenced water accounting and monitoring||Applications of modern technologies|
|Increasing sewage collection||Engagement of water operator||Increasing transparency|
|Increasing treatment of wastewater for reuse|
|Effective use of water resources|
The outputs /outcomes will be determined by technical improvements, management and governance improvements, and customer level improvements. The technical improvements will focus on physical infrastructure while the other two will focus more on institutional development and increasing customer satisfaction. A design and monitoring framework is prepared for the program
The Program invests largely in infrastructure works related to 24x7 water supply and expansion of sewerage system (including treatment and safe re-use), besides non-physical investments targeting a population of 13,76,253 in the ULBs proposed in Tranche 1 and Tranche 2 together. The programme aims to achieve:-
