Water supply pipeline from MK Dam to the RDC plant is approx. 25 Kms long. Real-time monitoring of leakages
is done through only 2 flow meters located at both ends of the pipelines. This leads to delayed response
times due to the time taken to identify the leakage points. A comprehensive solution is needed to identify
and locate leakages in real-time.
Water to the RDC plant is sourced from MK DAM which is 25 Km away from the RDC Plant. This pipeline passes through various villages, farms and other remote areas. Most of the water pipeline is underground, hence, inaccessible. We cannot manually monitor water leakages continuously for the entire length, therefore leading to delayed response time to water leakages. The delayed response results in water loss of 15-20% of supplied water i.e 100,000-150,000 m3/annum water. On the other hand, farmers face losses due to damaged crops/soil caused by excessive water leakage, the cost/compensation for the damage is borne by the RDC plant.
Currently there is flow meter installed only at inlet and outlet, i.e. MK Dam & RDC plant only. Therefore, a
comprehensive real-time monitoring solution is needed to identify, quantify and pinpoint the locations of
