The purpose of this thesis is to assess water supply in Bentiu area, Unity State , Sudan to propose solutions for improving the water supply system in terms of quality and quantity. Sanitary survey and water sampling were conducted for all the available water sources. Some information was obtained from the previous studies conducted by the NGOs and oil and gas companies working in the area. To obtain sustainable solutions for water supply problems, relevant information were utilized to achieve the objectives of the study. A model design for aeration system and slow sand filter for ground water treatment by using iron removal techniques was developed to produce high level drinking water in term of quality and to ensure a sustainable water supply in Bentiu area and surrounding rural communities. Standpost was designed to keep water collection point within a reasonable walking distance. Cost analysis was made for aeration system, slow sand filters, water well and standpost system
