The absence of fresh water inflow and discharge of pollutants from the cities upstream of Agra, India, resulted in a severe state of
pollution of the Yamuna River, the source of water for Agra and the river on which it is situated. The goal of this INR 400 billion project
was to combine two sources of river water, the Yamuna River and the Ganga River, by rehabilitating existing plants and constructing a new
144-milliliters-per-day water treatment plant at Agra.
NJS Engineers India used WaterGEMS to develop hydraulic models for the existing and proposed Agra distribution systems, evaluate the
existing facilities in terms of flow and capacities, and review the pressures within the distribution area. The team used STAAD.Pro to design
and review the structural engineering elements of the project. The centralized project database that included construction activities at
multiple locations proved to be invaluable.
The goal of this AUD 8.1 million project was to provide Gloucester, Australia, residents with adequate and reliable water services. With
elevation differentials of more than 60 meters, the Gloucester water network spanned more than 15 kilometers. The wide range of
elevations and the system layout meant that a single large reservoir to service the entire region was not feasible. A solution was needed
that would reduce the water system’s reliance on booster pumps.
MidCoast Water used WaterGEMS to develop a hydraulic model of the existing system and to simulate over 100 scenarios, from which it
selected a sustainable solution based on modeled pressures experienced by residents, pipe velocities, capital expenditures, and ongoing
operational and maintenance costs. Once the system improvements have been implemented, the annual operational and maintenance costs
will be reduced by more than 75 percent.
