Water Garden City will be located on a 400-hectare island site reclaimed from
the sea in an area north of Bahrain. The $2.65 billion commercial and residential
development, featuring roads, a marina, hotels, and civic developments, will be
a premier place to live and work for a potential population of 30,000, with an
additional floating population of 10,000.
Using SewerGEMS and MicroStation resulted in significant savings in the time
needed to produce drawings, develop profiles, and check designs. The software
saved approximately 30 to 40 percent of the network design time compared to
the previous process using Excel spreadsheets. The software was also used to
generate scenarios that provided a range of options such as designs for both
average-flow and peak-flow situations.
Veolia Water India Pvt-Ltd
Efficiency Improvement and Reducing Supply Discrepancies
The Nagpur Municipal Corporation is planning to outsource the city water
distribution network on a public-private partnership basis to provide 24/7 water
supply across the city of Nagpur, India. Veolia Water India is participating in a
$6 million pilot project in the Dharampeth zone with a goal of improving system
efficiency and service to customers.
Using WaterGEMS to prepare the existing distribution network model enabled
the company to save about 360 man-hours by avoiding repetition of network
drawing and data entry. With the use of WaterGEMS, Veolia applied a scientific
methodology to convert from intermittent to continuous water supply, resulting
in avoidance of waterborne diseases and establishing individual water
connections with affordable tariffs.
