WATER NETWORK MANAGEMENT

  • Recognising the need for modern infrastructure facilities and improved service delivery, a number of urban local bodies (ULBs) have turned to advanced technological solutions for efficient water network management.
  • Over the past decade or so, most ULBs have launched projects to deploy advanced flow and pressure management systems, leak detection devices, and asset management systems. In addition, SCADA systems, GIS, satellite surveillance and remote sensors are being deployed for monitoring collection, distribution and treatment systems.
  • The results of these initiatives have been quite encouraging. Cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Surat and Pune have been witnessing impressive growth rates on most key parameters. These include bill collection efficiency, a reduction in non-revenue water (NRW), water availability and quality, metering of connections and leakage control.
  • Some of the successful initiatives are the launch of a revenue management system in Delhi, a water loss management project in Bengaluru and a 24×7 water supply project in Nagpur, as well as the installation of a tertiary treatment plant in Surat.
  • A few cities have engaged private entities to improve service delivery and introduce professional and technical expertise in water supply management. This has resulted in some noteworthy improvements in operational performance such as a reduction in water losses, expansion of the customer base and an improvement in the billing and revenue collection mechanisms.
  • The government, too, is making concerted efforts to improve water network management practices through its flagship schemes such as the Smart Cities Mission and the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT). In the past one to two years, there have been noticeable improvements in water network management at the city level, primarily in terms of projects undertaken, capacity addition, and technologies and best practices adopted. However, the Covid-19 pandemic has put a halt on ongoing and planned projects across the country. It has resulted in liquidity constraints, pressure on supply chains, shortage of labour and cost overruns.
  • While the sector is seeing some improvement, the pace of change needs to be accelerated. The private sector needs to play a larger role in driving the trend of technology innovation. There is great scope for improving service delivery across the sector, and there is a huge opportunity in scaling up infrastructure. For this to happen, charges have to be rationalised. Above all, the orientation of ULBs must change – from that of mere facilitators for capacity creation to service providers striving to meet the needs of citizens.
  • The mission of this conference is to examine the state of water network management in Indian cities with a focus on strategies and solutions for minimising NRW and improving service delivery, identify the potential strategies to fast-track implementation, and highlight the near and medium-term outlook for the segment. The conference will also discuss noteworthy initiatives/best practices, highlight upcoming opportunities, as well as showcase the latest technologies and equipment.

SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT

  • Waste generation levels are expected to more than double by 2030 with the urban population also doubling. This has made it crucial for the government to put in place effective means of municipal solid waste (MSW) management. The sector has already witnessed incredible growth in the past few years on the back of an increasing focus on the environment and resource recovery.
  • ULBs have undertaken the deployment of smart bins, sorting machines, global positioning systems-based tracking systems, geographic information systems-based asset mapping, and management information systems for controlling and monitoring purposes.
  • Further, greater emphasis is being laid on door-to-door collection, waste segregation at source, and the setting up of integrated waste management facilities, scientific landfills and waste-to-energy (WtE) plants. New projects and capacities are also being added under various government programmes.
  • Of the total 54.4 million tonnes per annum of MSW being generated, about 60 per cent is processed. About 95 per cent of the wards have a door-to-door collection system and about 75 per cent have a segregation system. Some cities such as Indore, Visakhapatnam, Pune and Bhopal are segregating waste in all the wards.
  • Meanwhile, small towns and cities such as Kanpur, Ranchi and Mathura have witnessed increased private sector participation. This has resulted in improved operational efficiency and the deployment of advanced technologies.
  • The Covid-19 pandemic has, however, presented new challenges for waste management with a substantial increase in the generation of medical waste as infection cases rise. Greater emphasis is being laid on the deployment of IT solutions for effective waste management with minimum human interference. Besides, projects have witnessed delays on account of factors such as a shortage of raw materials and labour.
  • While considerable improvements have been made for waste management in the country, progress is far from satisfactory. Thus, the private sector’s role is becoming more important in bringing in investments for innovations in waste treatment and efficient O&M of infrastructure. To bring about a major shift, there is a need to address issues such as the absence of source segregation, financial constraints, shortage of skilled manpower, lack of proper planning by the authorities, poor enforcement of rules and low awareness among citizens.
  • The mission of this conference is to examine the state of the MSW sector in India, analyse new and emerging challenges during and post Covid, identify the potential strategies to fast-track project implementation, and highlight the near and medium-term outlook and opportunities in the waste management sector. The conference will also showcase recent innovations in technology and equipment.
