The project, located in Adiyan near Lagos, involves the construction of an intake station situated on the right bank of the Ogun River, complete with a vertical pumping system which conveys the untreated water in a spheroidal cast iron pipe 1,600 mm in diameter and approximately 8 km long.
When the water has been purified and rendered fit for drinking it is sent by a pumping station in two 80 m diameter circular tanks, 12 m tall, and introduced into the aqueduct.
