WATER BULLETIN ON 31.03.2016

The sewerage overflow at Chintalabasthi into second cellar of Moghul Emami Mansion has been rectified today afternoon employing three Air-Tech Machines since yesterday night.

The sewage water entered into the cellar through the sewerage connection connected to the manhole at 900 to the channel level of the Trunk sewer due to chokage of Trunk sewer near Shadan College on the down stream side.

Two manhole covers on the main road at Shadan College were buried under the road recently about a month back and it became difficult to locate the manholes and caused delay in repair work of clearing choakage. Lumps of plastic bags and other fibrous were found in the sewerage line clogging the silt and causing stagnation of sewage in the pipeline. After cleaning the obstructions, sewerage passed freely and the overflow in to the cellar stopped.

Customers are requested not to dump waste materials like plastic bags and fibrous items etc., in to sewer lines which causes clogging and overflow on roads and backflow into premises.

The other service departments including Hyderabad Metropolitan Rail Ltd while doing their works and laying BT/CC road covering the inspection manholes on the main roads. It is very difficult to locate such manholes on the main roads and therefore, it is very difficult to clean the sewer lines. Its is therefore advised to all other service departments such as HMRL, GHMC, R&B departments/National Highways to give instructions/provide conditions in the  works contract not to cover such manholes in future, while re-carpeting.   

Dr.B.Janardhan Reddy, IAS, Managing Director, HMWSSB inspected the site in morning and instructed the Officials to rectify the problem immediately.

WATER BULLETIN-II ON 22.03.2016

The Managing Director has reviewed the water supply status after restoration of the water supply from the Godavari Drininking Water Supply Project after attending the leakage. During the discussions the Director(Tech) and CGM(E), Trans.Circle informed that all the supplies are normalized  and no turbidity is observed.

       Further, it is also informed that earlier the Manjeera water is pumped from Patancheru to Lingampally reservoirs to supply the water to Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills, Ameerpet, Erragadda etc.  Many Sherilingampally Municipal Circle areas such as Chandanagar, HUDA Colony, Vemana Colony etc were also supplied from the Manjeera Ph-I, 900mm dia PSC pipeline, which is laid in 1965.

Now the water is being given from Lingampally reservoir towards Patancheru i.e., in reverse direction as the Manjeera source is completely dried. The PSC pipelines are joined with socket and spigot arrangement to allow the water flow in one direction only. Due to unavoidable conditions and to provide water to the consumers the water is transmitted in reverse direction which is causing no.of leakages from the joints of the pipeline. Generally the life of PSC pipeline will be about 30years but now the same pipeline is being used after 50 years of service also and that too allowing the water to flow in reverse direction.  Yesterday there was a heavy leakage at Chandanagar and the same is rectified immediately, (the enclosed photos shows the intensity of the leakage). Inspite of all these difficulties HMWSSB is geared up to supply the water to the areas where the regular sources of supply are dried up.

Hence the residents are requested to understand the hardship through which HMWSSB is passing and extend cooperation in the times of short or delayed supplies. The consumers are also requested to conserve water and use preciously.

WATER BULLETIN ON 21.12.2015

           In view of huge power consumption for pumping water supply from far distances of 110KM from Krishna Project with 3 stages pumping and 186 KM from Godavari Project with 4 stage pumping, the monthly power bill of HMWSSB is in the range of Rs. 45 to Rs. 60 Crores.

          Further on full commissioning of Godavari Drinking Water Scheme, the monthly power bill is likely to increase to Rs. 80 to Rs. 90 Crores per month.

          In this regard, as ‘HMWSSB’ is supplying the water to the extent of 87% quantity to only domestic purpose ar Rs.10 per KL and for the ‘BPL’ families it is only charging at Rs.7/- per KL against the Rs.42/- per KL production cost, it has become unviable for cross subsidy from non-domestic customers to whom already the highest tariff at Rs. 240/- per KL is being levied.

          Inview of the above after detailed study of power tariff being levied to water utilities, the HMWSSB requested the Govt to consider the separate power tariff to HMWSSB inline with BWSSB tariff where in Karnataka Govt has provided separate power tariff. Accordingly, detailed proposal was circulated and meeting was held with the Chief Secretary on 21.12.2015 on this subject where in Sp.Chief Secretary, MA&UD and Principal Secretary, Energy, MD/HMWSSB and CMD, TSSPDCL were present.

          After detailed discussions, it was opined that the matter may be placed before the next ‘Electricity Regulatory Commission’ for their consideration. It was also opined that in order to create confidence to the ERC, certain budget provision may be provided to HMWSSB by re-appropriating the funds from MA&UD Dept as compensatory fund, so that indirectly the relief can be provided to HMWSSB for reductions in monthly power bill.

          In this context, it was suggested that while giving such subsidy provision on power tariff to HMWSSB, it was directed to take up reforms process on ÚFW’ to bring it down each year by equivalent to such subsidised amount.

          Also , MD/HMWSSB was instructed to explore the possibility of setting up Solar Power Plants at all feasible locations to reduce its power requirement from TSSPDCL.

Therefore, there is no possibility of heavy metals in the water supplied to the public as the heavy metals are not found in the sources itself.

        The water supplied by the HMWS&S Board is monitored by internal and external agencies that check the potability of water throughout the GHMC. There is a very strong surveillance system that is functioning to monitor the quality of water right from the source to the consumer point. Daily 1500 samples are examined by the internal quality wing and 2000 samples are being tested for residual chlorine by the Linemen of O&M Divisions. Further, 700 samples are being tested for RC by the external agencies like Institute of Preventive Medicine, Institute of Health Systems and Self Help Group Volunteers. There are 202 Nos. of chlorination plants installed at WTPs, Balancing reservoirs and service reservoirs for maintaining the sufficient levels of residual chlorine in the distribution system of HMWS&SB. 

        The Quality Assurance & Testing Wing is comprising of 7 Nos. of laboratories and they regularly analyze all the important Physico-Chemical parameters of all the supplies and adhering to IS 10500-2012 drinking water standards. During routine water quality monitoring by internal and external agencies, if any polluted water is noticed, on war footing the pollution rectification is being taken up within 48 hours by the concerned Managers (Engg.), thereby ensuring that no Faecal coliform bacteria or E-coli are present. Further, due to maintaining sufficient levels of residual chlorine in the entire distribution system, there has been no incidence of outbreak of water borne diseases like ADD, Cholera, Gastroenteritis etc. The acceptable and existing values of the Physico-chemical parameters are as shown below.

  1. Water supply from River Godavari for the first time:

      The Water from Godavari Drinking Water Supply Project reached the city on Nov- 29th 2015 with operating one pump with a capacity of 28.50 MGD after the entire trunk main and ring main were properly scoured to clean the pipe line. At the time of commissioning of a new water supply pipeline it is common to have some turbidity initially for some time in the water. Before the water is cleared and after successful trial run with one pump and to increase the supply another pump was put in operation on 02.12.2015 and this increased the turbulence in the water and the turbidity was increased slightly. Necessary chlorination is being given at Ghanpur reservoir for disinfection of the water. In a day or two, 3rd pump will also be started and some more turbulence is expected and the turbidity may last for a week or so. However quality of water is being maintained as per standards by  chlorination at Ghanpur reservoir.

      However, the consumers of the Division.VI, IX, XII & XV, who are getting the water from Godavari Drinking Water Supply Project are once again requested to consume the water after boiling and filtering or after using any other disinfection method as a safety measure.

  1. Contingency action plan:

     The Inter Ministerial Central team has arrived to the Hyderabad city to assess the drought situation -2015 and briefed by the Chief Secretary in the meeting held today for which the officials from the departments concerned including HMWSSB attended. The team will inspect the dried up lakes at Osmansagar, Himayathsagar and Manjeera Barrage etc., on 08.12.2015 along with the officials from HMWSSB.  HMWSSB requested a financial assistance of Rs:134.30 Crores for drought relief works for the year 2015-16/2016-17. 

     HMWSSB is arranging for supplying of water to the colonies situated in Serlingampally municipality from Lingampally towards Patancheru side by pumping in the reverse direction as never before as the Manjeera and Singoor reservoirs have gone dry. Since inception of the Manjeera Drinking Water Supply scheme this situation has not arised. HMWSSB is making all efforts against odds for supplying of water to the colonies in the Serilingampally Municipal Circle area.

     It may take another two weeks to fully stabilize the supplies in these colonies for which the consumers are earnestly requested to kindly bear any hardship till such period.

  • Providing water supply to the upstream areas of Lingampally and Hydernagar Master Balancing reservoirs.

Earlier these two master balancing reservoirs used to receive water from Manjeera Phase-I, Phase-II, Phase-III and Phase-IV schemes.

 The trunk mains from Patancheru to Lingampally and Patancheru to Hydernagar  are passing through Lingampally areas. Therefore, earlier the water supply to the enroute colonies used to be directly drawn from these trunk mains before the water reaches to the master balancing reservoirs.

 In the present scenario due to no drawals from Singur and Manjeera, water is not flowing through these mains from Patancheru to Lingampally / Hydernagar reservoirs.

 In view of the above it is proposed to supply the water through these mains in the reverse direction from the Lingamaplly reservoir towards Patancheru and from Hydernagar reservoir towards Patancheru and to provide supplies to the enroute areas along these trunk mains.

 

The required junction works and installation of pumps and motors and other connected works are completed at Lingampally reservoir.

 

The supplies are released from Hydernagar reservoir to the following areas : J.P. Nagar, Mayuri Nagar, Deepti Sri Nagar, F.C.I Colony, Old Hafeezpet, Mythrinagar, Madinnaguda areas.

 Further the other areas such as Suraksha colony, Gowtham Nagar, Gangaram part are also programmed to be supplied from Lingampally reservoir in the reverse direction from the trunk mains.

 

  • Providing mobile tanker supply.

 Due to no supplies from Singur and Manjeera sources to its command areas, there was a sudden rise in booking of tankers. Now with close monitoring and diversion of tankers it has been normalized and same will be continued without much difficulties to the customers.

 

  • Commissioning of new reservoirs in the old city.

     It is proposed to commission the new reservoir at Bandlaguda including its distribution network on 10.12.2015 by completing all the balance minor finishing works to provide water supply to about 10,000 houses which are dependent only on tanker and borewell supply since many years. It is programmed to open one special single window cell unit to sanction the new water supply connections instantly to avoid any delays duly verifying all the documents at site to prevent the prospective customers without going around many offices and it also prevents the unauthorized connections.

RAIN WATER HARVESTING TIPS 09.11.2015

In the present day world, rapid urbanization coupled with industrialization has become the order of the day. Added to urbanization, scanty and erratic rainfall is often resulting in reduction in water levels indicating depletion in storage in the surface reservoirs. Dependence on ground water is increasing rapidly over the past two decades. The demand is so high that indiscriminate use of groundwater resulting in steep fall of the ground water levels and there is also reduction in yields.

Apart from this, sealing of permeable soil zone is gradually increasing due to construction activities thereby resulting in reduced percolation of rainwater into the sub-surface and increased surface run-off. Therefore an urgent need to take up rain or roof water harvesting or conservation methods in urban and rural areas on a large scale, which subsequently help to recharge and maintain ground water balance, in order to make it on a sustainable source.

In view of the above, the Managing Director HMWSSB solicits the cooperation and participation of all citizens to propagate water conservation as the Board started the common cause of implementation of a massive programme on Rainwater Harvesting or Conservation this year. The Board is offering Online applications from the interested Residential Welfare Associations for conducting Awareness programmes in the colonies for technical guidance to construct Rainwater Harvesting or Conservation Structures in individual houses or Apartments in their colony at their own cost. In addition to that, the Board also will take up construction of Rainwater Harvesting Structures along with injection wells in the open places, parks etc..in the colonies  on the request of interested Residential Welfare Associations if they enter into MOU with the Board for regular maintenance of the structures to augment the depleted groundwater to mitigate water problem in Urban areas.

All the interested residential welfare associations are requested to visit www.hyderabadwater.gov.in and apply for the rainwater harvesting structures online. The Assistant Director (GW), HMWSSB will Contact the association and conduct Awareness programmes in the respective colonies and select suitable areas for construction of suitable Rainwater Harvesting structures.

MEDIA REJOINDER 16.10.2015

     It is submitted that an adverse news item was published on dated:15.10.2015  in the ‘Mana Telangana’ telugu news paper under the caption  “Online loo Aawahnam Anugulaku Andhalam” leveling allegations to the effect that the Management of HMWS&SB  has been allotting the filling points at their discretion without considering the option exercised by the tanker owner.  It has been alleged among other things that applications were invited for KPHB filling point under O&M Dn.IX and at the discretion of the management, the tankers are being allotted to the Madhapur filling point under O&M Dn.XV. An allegation was also leveled to the effect that though steel tankers are invited for registration under Dial-a-tanker scheme but in contrary.

 

     At the outset the above allegations published in the ‘Mana Telangana’ telugu news paper are denied in toto. In this regard, it is submitted that in the Eenadu Telugu daily news paper and in Namaste Telugu daily news paper on dt: 20.03.2015, a paper notification was issued to the effect inviting applications from the tanker owners to engage their tankers under Dial-a-tanker scheme. In the said paper notification it has been proposed to come up with stainless steel tanker container and to register their tankers through online accessing online tanker application designed exclusively for the purpose in our website viz  hyderabadwater.gov.in. It is to be noted that in the said online tanker application, among other things, an option was put to the effect to fill up filling station name to which the tanker owner is intending to register his tanker.

 

     Till last month, the HMWS&SB have issued orders registering the tankers under Dial-a-tanker scheme as per the option exercised by the tanker owners. But the GM(E),O&M Dn.IX has expressed during the meeting not to allot additional tankers at Bhagyanagar OR KPHB filling station under O&M Dn.IX as the existing tankers are sufficient to meet the demand. On the other side the GM(E),O&M Dn.XV has requested to allot new tankers to Madhapur filling station to cope up with the  increased demand for tankers. After evaluating the situation, it has been decided to allot the new tankers by Management to Madhapur filling station under O&M Dn.XV.

 

     It is hereby clarified in view of the above allegations that the Management of HMWS&SB reserves the right to allot any filling point keeping in view the requirement and bookings at Metro Customer Care. As can be seen from the terms and conditions of the Dial-a-tanker scheme under clause -3 to the effect that the HMWS&SB is at liberty to transfer the vehicle registered in one Division to other, or one filling station to another based on need or administrative convenience. Only interested parties willing to work on this condition need to apply.

 

    Therefore, it is requested to treat the allegations as baseless and untrue.
