The burgeoning New Delhi, India, population, coupled with slow and unorganized development in sewage infrastructure, has posed a major
threat to the city’s sanitation issues, subsequent river water quality, and public health of the inhabitants. AECOM was engaged by Delhi Jal
Board to develop an integrated and sustainable master plan for 2031, along with carrying out hydraulic designs and tendering works.
This USD 3. 25 billion project covers an area of around 1,500 square kilometers. AECOM used WaterGEMS and SewerGEMS to model this
area, which included 10,000 kilometers of a sewerage network for unsewered areas. By using pre-defined queries extensively, integration
with GIS, automated load calculations, scenarios, and alternatives, along with excellent representation of design and simulation outcomes,
AECOM saved significant design time.

Sewerage Master Plan – 2031 for NCT of Delhi FINALIST
This BRL 280 million project improved the largest water supply system in São Paulo, Brazil – the Cantareira water supply system – which
has been operating for more than 40 years and now serves a population of 9 million.
WaterGEMS allowed Sabesp to diagnose exceeding velocity and deficient flow rates for the present and future based on projected
population growth and water demands, which confirmed future electricity costs and the increased lifespan of deployed assets that now
included expanded storage capacity and duplication of water mains, ensuring adequate water supply. With this hydraulic project, pump
operations were optimized taking advantage of off-peak hours. The field data were transferred to the office via two software solutions:
supervisory (SCADA) and GIS, both of which interfaced with WaterGEMS.
