The Mirzapur area is spread over 4,525 square kilometers, and water is consumed through individual and public hand pumps. The Leduki Village water supply scheme proposes a piped water supply system to ensure equal distribution of treated water to all 128 villages. The project presented topography challenges, and traditional technology applications were unable to provide accurate visualization and network planning. Therefore, the project team needed comprehensive hydraulic modeling technology to determine an optimal network alignment, plan district metered areas, ensure equipment safety, and provide digital deliverables to the client.
They selected OpenFlows WaterGEMS to model and visualize the project location and new piping network. The software helped analyze 125 kilometers of pumping main, optimizing the design scheme and saving costs on electricity, machinery, and the operating and maintenance costs associated with pumping equipment. STAAD facilitated structural design of the elevated service reservoir and water treatment plant. Using Bentley’s integrated technology solution, they delivered the project almost a month ahead of schedule.
