Total Articles: 1
The areas who are hit by the drought severely mainly Maharashtra is an alarming situation. Here’s what Mr. Arun Lakhani has to say about the rising water crisis. Our 89% of the total available water of around 890 cubic meter goes into agriculture, of the balance 11% goes to industry and drinking water needs are met. We need enhanced management of water. The coverage of piped water, the metering of water and the adequate supply of 24 hours of pressurized water these are the three steps. So to bring first to the equitable water, we need to design the system, invest money into the infrastructure and more importantly have budgets to maintain it what we have already built.
According to HPEAC report in 2011 only 64% of the population received piped supply of water, more than 50% of water losses occurred due to leak in pipes. The duration of water supply is not much; it ranges from an hour to 6 hours daily. The national statistics on number of meters provided to the population stands to the lowest at 4% and only 30% of sewage water is treated as far as larger towns are concerned. Situation is far worse in smaller towns where the figure is as low as 3%. Fortunately for people of Nagpur, the authorities decided to act on time. And Orange City Water was implemented.
What is required is an integrated approach to water management, by integrated approach we need to see the complete water cycle as a whole. So we detect it from a source, then the treatment part then the distribution part then the customer service part. So if you have Nagpur 24×7 in the distribution part that definitely improves not only the water quality & drinking water but also saves water. Then comes the second very important part is the sewage treatment. Sewage treatment and the reuse of sewage treated water complete the cycle.
The entire integrated water management project for Nagpur 24×7 began with a simple concept that we want to have a continuous water supply sustaining Nagpur that means 24×7 water supply has to be provide to all the individual citizens. It was decided to improve the efficiency and bring in the new technology, a private sector expertise & to ensure that equitable water distribution this entire concept of 24×7 water supply or continuous water supply was brought in.
Nagpur 24×7 water supply project was conceptualized to convert the terms of water supply to a round the clock one by equitable distribution. The project kicked off with replacement of leaking pipes and house service connection. The target of Nagpur of 24*7 water supply project is to replace 600 kilometers of pipelines in the city and provide 3, 25,000 house service connections. It also aims to provide services like metering, billing, collection and customer service 3, 25,000 consumers. The project aims to undertake the operation and maintenance of water treatment plant to the capacity of 725 million liters per day.
Nagpur Muncipal Corporation decided to act on this matter along with Vishvaraj infrastructure Limited and they are victorious and have achieved good results. Now the citizens of Nagpur get pressurized water supply round the clock.
