ABOUT THE MISSION

REF: IOF ALM WSH 044 YEM 2021
LOCATION: Solidarites international – Yemen, Aden
DATE: Aden, 5/14/2021
SUBJECT: Consultancy to conduct localized hydrogeological, geophysics and related studies of surface, subsurface and ground water sources in four districts on the west coast of yemen, the middle east.

Dear Madam, Sir,

Solidarites International (SI), in collaboration with the Ministry of Water & Environment (MoWE) of the Government of the Republic of Yemen invites bids from qualified and reputable national and international consultants (individuals, firms, institutions or organizations) to conduct localized hydrogeological and related studies of surface, subsurface and ground water sources in four districts on the West Coast of Yemen (AlMukha and Mawza in Taiz governorate and Al Khawkhah and At Tuhyat in Al Hudaydah governorate, estimated total population 245,373 people in 2021). The outcome shall inform water supply development of a 3-year Resilience WASH project funded by the Swiss International Development Cooperation (SDC) and Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Dutch-MOFA) and implemented by Solidarites in collaboration with MoWE. Besides Hygiene Promotion and Environmental Sanitation activities, the program targets to implement at least 23 water supplies entailing construction or rehabilitation of 1 dam and rehabilitation of existing shallow wells and boreholes to serve a targeted population of 60,000 people –Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and IDP hosting communities in the 4 districts, including children in at least 4 public schools and patients in at least 6 public health facilities.

The tangible outputs expected from the survey include:

  • update of existing hydrogeological and physical information and mapping on the Tihama catchment basin of the West Coast
  • Identification of wells to be monitored over the longer term (manual dipping and automatic logging methods, including recommendations of suitable logger models and specifications) for representative and individual well aquifer characteristics
  • An interactive database of water sources in the four districts, featuring well static water levels, yields and chemical parameters, which will be integrated later with a water supply infrastructure database.

 To realize this, the consultant shall:

  • conduct a desktop study of existing literature and water sources;
  • undertake representative field reconnaissance surveys of water sources and bodies (shallow wells, boreholes, wadis, dams, springs) in key targeted project locations in the 4 districts, measuring static water levels (SWL), conducting yield tests ( including test pumping) and water quality analysis on some of the water sources;
  • Using sampled sources and existing data on surface, subsurface and ground water sources in the area, generate GIS imaging and mapping capturing key hydrogeology and geological features in key study areas targeted in the four districts. (A field level geophysics study will not be necessary as the Resilience WASH project focuses mainly on rehabilitation and augmentation of existing WASH facilities).

ABOUT THE MISSION

The consultancy is projected to start in the first week of June 2021, with the field activity commencing fourth week of June 2021 and last approximately 30 work days, finishing by end of July 2021, and the final report submitted by end August 2021.

This study is one of three Solidarites critical consultancy studies in the West Coast that will run parallel (or at times, sequentially), the others being ‘water supply infrastructure survey and mapping’ and ‘sanitation infrastructure survey and mapping’..
