Underground Water Development/Rural Water Supply Project
v Carry out a systematic, geophysical and hydrogeological investigation within the Niger Delta area.
v It will cover the construction of 9⅝” diameter boreholes, installation of 5.5 to 40HP submersible pumps, construction of 40m3 – 200m3 over head tank, pumping stations with staff quarters, installation of treatment plant, where necessary, and 15-60KVA generating set to supply power, provision of limited reticulation and rehabilitation of existing water schemes.
v A total of 160 No. water schemes were developed in the Authority’s area of operation. Details of this is as shown below.

Water Quality Control Project
This is to monitor and access the level of pollution caused to the underground and surface water of the Niger Delta.
* Control measures and safe standard will be set both for terrestrial and aquatic life in the Niger Delta.
Samples of water from the rivers, creeks, boreholes are to be collected and analyzed.
* A water factory is to be established for the production of table water.
Within the 1980s a fully equipped laboratory was established within the Headquarters in Port Harcourt, where water samples were collected and analysed.
Construction of the 1st phase of the laboratory building completed.
Equipment and reagents for the new laboratory have been procured. Some of the equipment are awaiting installation.
Equipment for the production of table water procured and is awaiting installation
Construction of the Water Processing Factory building completed awaiting commissioning. NAFDAC has approved the plan and all necessary steps taken to produce the Table Water in commercial quantity.
