Water supply system in urban area should be developed in a proper way to meet the demand and at the same time, quality of water should also be maintained with in standard prescribed limits.

Thus the quality of water and the distributions are the important issues for urban water supply system.
Provision of an adequate quantity of water has been a matter of concern since the beginning of civilization. Even in ancient cities, local supplies were often inadequate and aqueducts were built to convey water from distant sources. The primary objective of water supply system is to take water from the best available source and to subject it to processing which will ensure water of good quality, free from unpleasant taste or odour and containing nothing which might be determined to health, and to distribute it top meet the requirement of the town or the city.

Any public water supply scheme should meet the following requirements: Ensured quality of water supply for its intended use like drinking or industrial use. Ensured sufficient quantity of supply. Ensured convenient and easy accessibility of water supply distribution. Ensured economic and financial viability of water supply product such that the capital and recurring cost falls within the affordable limits of the consumers of the system.

Surface Source:

Surface water is water in a river, lake or fresh water wetland. Surface water is naturally replenished by precipitation and naturally lost through discharge to the oceans, evaporation and sub-surface seepage.

Ground Water Source: Sub-Surface water, or groundwater, is fresh water located in the pore space of soil and rocks. It is also water that is flowing within aquifers below the water table. Sometimes it is useful to make a distinction between subsurface water that is closely associated with surface water and deep sub-surface water in an aquifer.

Surface Sources:
Storage Reservoir
Investigation for Reservoir Planning

Engineering Surveys Geological Investigations Hydrological Investigation Calculation of reservoir capacity for a specified yield from the inflow.

INTAKES: Intakes are classified under three heads as under:


River Intakes


Reservoir Intakes for earth dams

Ground Water Source:


Types of Aquifers:
1. Unconfined Aquifer 2. Confined Aquifer (Artesian Aquifer)

Other Sources of Under Ground Water:

Infiltration Gallery

Collection of Water from Springs


Factors affecting the quantity of water supply are:
Pollution and their characteristics Climatic conditions Size and type of city Standard of living Quality of water Pressure in the supply System of supply Rates of water Type of sewerage system Metering Fire-fighting requirement Number and type of industries Area under public gardens Policy regarding the metered supply

Potential sources of water supply

Age of community

Design period:
For water supply projects, a 30 years design period is assumed. Population forecast for this period take into consideration the potential of various sectors of urban economy and regional physical and economic linkages.

Per capita rate of water supply: The following per capita rates have been recommended as the minimum requirement for the design of public water supply in India:
For design population up to 5,000 90 lpcd per person
For design population up to 5,000 to 20,000 110 lpcd per person For design population up to 20,000 to 50,000 125 lpcd per person For design population above 50,000 to 2, 00,000 200 lpcd per person.

Rate of water supply: The consumption of water during the year is not always at a constant rate. There will be seasonal, monthly, daily, and hourly variation.

Temperature: the drinking water should be cool. Desirable is bet. 10c to 15.6 c. Turbidity: turbidity is on account of suspended and colloidal inorganic matter such as silt, clay and mud particle. It should be between 2.5 -10 ppm. Odour and Taste: substance that produce and odour will almost invariably impart a taste as well as odour in drinking water may be due to the presence of microscopic organic matter or inorganic substance such as iron, sodium carbonates and sulphates.

Colour: for drinking purpose the colour of water should be preferably be less than 10ppm.
Alkalinity: alkalinity is mainly because of carbonates, bicarbonates and hydroxides. It helps in the process of coagulation while purifying the water.

Hardness: hardness of water is due to the presence of bicarbonates sulphates and chlorides of calcium carbonate.hardness of water should be between 75-115 ppm for domestic purpose.
pH value: pH value is a symbol of presence of positive hydrogen iron concentration in a sample of water. Water containing alkali will have OH ions, while water containing an acid will have more H+ ions. The ph value of water for domestic use shall be from 6.5 to 8.

Distribution of water is very much important in any water supply network. Water supply distribution is designed to satisfy the demand placed by different land use densities and fire-fighting requirements all the time. Piping systems, pumping stations, storage facilities fire hydrants, house connections, water meters constitute the entire distribution system. The distribution system normally costs 60 to 70% of the total cost.

Municipal water supply system consists of the following units:

Collection works Transmission works Purification works

Distribution works

Distribution system characteristics:

The configuration The configuration of the system is dictated primarily by the street pattern, topography, degree and type of development of the area and location of treatment and storage work.

Topography and distribution

If there is a change in topography, the distribution system is divided into zones. This will preclude extreme high pressure at lower area and maintain reasonable pressure at higher elevation. Grid and branching system The distribution system may be generally classified as grid system, branching system or some other combination. Pipe specification Distribution pipes shall not be less than 150 mm in diameter in the Indian metropolitan cities to meet fire-fighting requirements. In other urban areas the minimum pipe diameter shall be 100 mm. Pressure specification The minimum residual pressure at the time of two store houses,17 meters for three store house and 22 mt for four store houses.

Water Distribution system:

The spatial distribution of water consumption can be estimated by studying population demand and commercial and industrial water use patterns.
1. Dead-End System or Tree System:-

2. Grid Iron System or Reticulation System:-

3. Circular System or Ring System:-

4. Radial System:-

Water treatment processes:

Following are purposes of water treatment:
To remove colour, dissolved gas and murkiness of water. To remove objectionable tastes and odour. To remove the disease-producing micro-organisms so that water is safe for drinking purposes. To remove hardness of water.


Screening Aeration Sedimentation With or Without Coagulants.

Water Supply System - Year 2006 to 2013 (Present)

In the year 2006, city limit was extended from 112.27 to 326.51 area, merging 27 Grampanchayats & 8 Nagarpalikas into city. Due to the revised area & population scenario, preparation of Master Plan had to be revised. By fast-tracking the implementation of projects, SMC has achieved 46% increase in water supply from 580 in 2006 to 850 in 2012. SMC is now poised to achieve the goal of 100% coverage of extended area & population by 2013. Increase in Capacity Year 2006-2012 & Projected Increase by 2014

Capital Expenditure In Water Supply & Increase In Daily Water Supply:

Surat Municipal Corporation has spent more than Rs.993 Crores as capital expenditure on water supply infrastructure since year 1995 up to year 2011-12. Due to the project investments, area of Surat city prior to city limit extension in year 2006 was covered 99% population & 97% area under water supply pipeline network. Due to merger of new area into city, water supply coverage has been 82% in 2010. Gross daily average water supply increased from 180 MLD in year 1995 to about 850 MLD currently. SMC has planned to achieve the goal of 100% area & population coverage of Surat city under water supply network including newly merged area by the year 2014 with stage wise project implementation.
