Projects Undertaken by the Department

Initiatives taken by the Department

Having experienced the short fall in water from Sabarmati River and ground water sources the following new source augmentation schemes were commissioned:

Kotarpur Water treatment Plant

650 MLD water treatment plant was constructed from 1983 to 1987, but surface water source from Dharoi was not adequate, It was not commissioned.

The Narmada canal alignment was planned by GoG u/s of Kotarpur water works and escape in the river Sabarmati was constructed and commissioned. So that Narmada canal water was available in the river to pick up this water, AMC has planned Intake well work in two phases.

165 MLD Intake well-1 at Kotarpur Water Works was constructed & commissioned at the cost of Rs. 2.02 crores in year 2003

330 MLD Intake well-2 at Kotarpur Water Works was constructed & commissioned at the cost of Rs. 8.4 crores in year 2006 under JnNURM project.

Dudheswar Water Works & seven French wells were come in operation from August 2002. Thereafter to develop an assured source, work of gravity mains was conceptualized.

Gravity line of 2500 mm dia from Narmada main canal to Kotarpur water works is laid in December 2006 & commissioned from January 2007. By this gravity line AMC getting 330 MLD water to Kotarpur water works

Raska Project

To meet with the increasing water demand for the growing population, the water from Mahi canal through Raska weir water supply project about 300 MLD of water was planned out & commissioned in April 2000 at the project cost of Rs. 120 crores and was constructed & commissioned in record time of 180 days .

Mahi river water is diverted from Vanakbori weir through Mahi canal to Shedhi branch canal tail end near Zinger village. Raw water pump house is constructed at the tail end of Shedhi branch canal to take 130 cusec water. This water pumped to Kotarpur water works through 32 km length of 2100 mm dia M.S. pipeline with inner lining & outside mortar coating. The raw water pump house has 6 Nos. of vertical turbine pumps each having capacity of 3410 mt³/hr.

Jaspur water treatment plant

Narmada canal water based Jaspur water treatment plant of 275 MLD capacity is planned, constructed & commissioned for new West Zone area of Ahmedabad in the year November 2006 and the same is augmented to 400 MLD capacity in year 2014.
