INTRODUCTION

Hydropower plays a vital role in National Strategies for delivering affordable and clean electricity, Managing freshwater, Combating climate change and improving livelihoods. Hydroelectric energy has been in recent times placed as an important future source of renewable and clean energy. It stores large amounts of electricity at low cost and it can be adjusted to meet consumer demand. This noble vision, however, is becoming more challenging due to rapid urbanization development and increasing human activities surrounding the catchment area. Hydro Power is our richest renewable and environmentally benign source of energy. Hydropower stations have the unique capabilities to manage the load variations which helps in improving the reliability of the power system as they have the inherent ability for instantaneous starting and stopping. The hydropower so far developed in our country is only 44,653 MW as against the ultimate hydropower installing potential of 1,48,700 MW. Earlier, hydropower development was the activity of only the Government (Central or State). Presently Private sector players are also coming forward in sharing the responsibility of hydropower development along with central and state governments in view of the liberal provisions of the new hydropower policy. Every effort is required to be made for creating the balance hydel power potential to meet the fast-growing needs of our country. Central/State Governments should extend all necessary help in the signing of PPA for private hydropower projects. Hence, the Govt. needs to effectively intervene to evoke the investors’ confidence in the sector.

Drinking water sources are under continuous threat of contamination with far-reaching consequences on health in general and of children in particular and it is also gravely affecting the economic and social development of communities as well as nations. A wide range of human and natural processes affect the biological, chemical, and physical characteristics of water and thus impact water quality. Numerous human activities are responsible for water quality, including agriculture, industry, mining, disposal of human waste, population growth, urbanization, and climate change. Climate change and in particular increasing temperatures and changes in hydrological patterns such as droughts and floods influence water quality and exacerbate water pollution from sediments, nutrients, dissolved organic carbon, pathogens, pesticides, as well as thermal pollution.

Bureau of Indian Standards has brought out IS-10500-2012 which clearly specifies standards for drinking water. In rural areas generally, more than 85% of drinking water sources are ground water-based and chemical constituents in groundwater do not change overnight, therefore, testing of chemical contaminants once in a year is adequate. In the case of surface water, the testing procedures are more stringent and periodical.

Currently, interventions for improving water quality monitoring performance among water suppliers and surveillance agencies tend to emphasize hardware and knowledge inputs, including upgrading laboratories, supplying equipment, introducing mobile phone applications for data management and addressing capacity building initiatives.

INTRODUCTION

Project is a unique process, consisting of a set of coordinated and controlled activities to achieve objectives conforming to specific requirements, within constraints of time, cost and resources. Project Management involves planning, organizing, monitoring, controlling and reporting all aspects of a Project and the notification for all those involved in it to achieve the project objectives. Project Management is more than simply tracking deadlines and setting a budget. A good Project Manager takes control of a project from beginning to end, ensuring that the initiatives and goals are strategically aligned, the project has stakeholder supports and everyone is or the same page. Projects are often complex and involve numerous stakeholders, having a project manager to lead the initiative and keep everyone on the same page is critical to project success. The software applications are designed to assist project managers for effective project management The Software creates critical path schedules, which can be resource leveled. Resource (men, machinery, and materials) can be shared between projects using a shared resource pool. Each resource can have its own calendar which defines what days and in which shifts a resource is available. The software also creates a budget based on assignment work and resource rates. As resources are assigned to tasks and assignment work estimated, the Software calculates the cost which equals the work times the rate. This rolls up to the task level, than to summary tasks and finally to the project level. The Software is extended with Project Server and Project Web Access. Project server stores data in a central database. Project Web Access allows the user to display and update this data over the Internet. Web Access allows authorised users to access a Project Server database across the Internet. It includes timesheets, graphical analysis of resource workloads and administrative tools. The Software recognises different classes of users. These different classes of users can have differing access levels to project views and other data. Custom objects such as calendars, views, tables, filters, and fields are stored in an enterprise global database, which is shared by all the concerned users.

Introduction

Automation has the potential to provide an improved measurement and control of flows necessary to reduce operational losses and supply water when and where required for more efficient on-farm use. The motivation to pursue automation and modernize irrigation canal operations in India is high as it has the potential to secure the maximum amount of water for India’s future needs. It is well known that the agriculture sector in India utilizes roughly 80% of its available fresh surface water for irrigation. [ Which clearly justifies the need and desire to change the water resource management in India. To start with it should be initiated at the policy level and necessary legislation on-farm water entitlements and metering of flows for irrigation should be implemented stringently. Upgrading existing canal system operations needs to be done in stages as a rehabilitation program. The majority of canal systems in India are operated in a manner which is referred to as conventional operation. A conventional operation consists of a scheduled delivery, an upstream operational concept and a constant downstream depth operational method but conventional operation has the shortfall of monitoring inevitable discrepancy between forecast and actual delivery flows. In addition, there will always be inaccuracies in checking the flow and the amount of water stored in the canal pools. Since the canal system is not operated to react to actual demand, any such errors are transferred downstream. Generally, canals are used for water distribution to remote areas. Large canal network is developed in the last few years all over India. The monitoring of canal network is done using Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system to help in delivering the required quantum of water on-time as per the pre-defined schedule by analyzing the complete network for all scheduled / unscheduled requirements. It also generates various reports; trends, graphs, etc. Statistics generated can be utilized for improving the water utility and in turn the canal efficiency. The automation of distribution canals in India particularly to improve water delivery services to end-users by reducing operating cost and improving distribution efficiency.
