Hydraulic simulations helped optimise the water distribution network
Water networks consist of pipes, junctions, pumps, valves, service reservoirs and so on. Asset database and management is the key to analysing any water supply system. As part of the benchmarking process for the water supply and distribution system in Rajasthan, we conducted a detailed study in 222 towns in the state. Our study was classified into four stages – model building, model calibration, optimisation and reporting. In the process, we dealt with an enormous database comprising assets, topography of the area, supply quantity and duration.
With MIKE URBAN (now MIKE+), we were capable of managing and analysing this data efficiently. The state-of-the-art water modelling software provided a detailed solution for complete integration of GIS and water modelling for Rajasthan’s water distribution network.
