News: Gurugram: Now, meters to check water flow, quality at 31 locations-24-07-2021


GURUGRAM: The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has decided to expand its water management system to 31 locations across the city after successfully implementing it at 10 locations. The project involves monitoring and regulating the quantity and quality of the water being supplied through remote meters fitted in water tanks.
The data from these devices will be sent to the integrated command and control centre, where it will be monitored by GMDA’s wet infrastructure team. “The information collected from these devices is also available for ground staff on a mobile application, Jal Mitra,” a senior official from GMDA’s smart city wing told TOI.

He added that officials can use this information to monitor water levels and take action to avoid any disruptions in water supply as and when required. The data from these devices can also be accessed on GMDA’s app under the drainage tab.

The official further said eventually, they plan to connect the entire city’s drainage with the water management system. “We want to monitor the amount of water being released from the two water treatment plants and the amount of water being billed. This will help us check water theft, if any,” said the official.

The project includes installation of an ultrasonic water flow meter, flow control valve and level meter in the underground tanks. The flow meter, as the name suggests, helps monitor the flow of water in each of the tanks. The level meter, on the other hand, will help check the level of water in the tanks. The devices will also monitor the biochemical oxygen demand, chemical oxygen demand, pH and total suspended solid levels in water, which will help determine its quality.

“The flow control valve will help in regularising and controlling the flow of water in tanks. This will help us ensure that there is equitable distribution of water across all underground tanks,” he added. Many areas in the city that are at a higher gradient do not get enough water and the system is expected to help address the issue.

According to sources within GMDA, due to a lack of monitoring, an estimated 30% of drinking water becomes non-revenue water owing to theft, irregular supply and leakage.
