INTRODUCTION

Quality is the totality of features and characteristics of a product or service that bear on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs. For construction, the needs must be defined by the client. The inclusion of services is pertinent to construction, where both designers and contractors supply services as well as the product i.e. the completed work. Quality Assurance draws utmost attention to ensure the structural safety of different salient components of the project so that the objectives set are achieved during their Operation and Maintenance period. Quality Assurance includes all the activities concerned with the attainment of quality, a process designed to increase confidence in a product’s ability to achieve the stated objectives. A number of projects are being taken up in various sectors related to Irrigation, Hydro-power, Water supply for drinking in Rural and Urban Areas, Highways, Buildings, etc. The benefits that are expected from these projects can be derived only after their completion with all the care taken with respect to Quality Assurance. Otherwise, the Operation and Maintenance costs for the projects run high resulting in disappointment during their performance. Quality Assurance includes Quality Control, Quality Management both by in-situ and laboratory tests including destructive and non-destructive tests.

INTRODUCTION

Providing safe and clean drinking water to the public in general and rural areas, in particular, has been a major challenge for the Government both at Central and State level. Right from 1st five-year plan drinking water was given high priority and huge amounts were spent for creating infrastructure and capital aspects to provide drinking water in rural areas. The program involved incremental ascension and improvements from spot sources to direct pumping systems to mini PWS schemes to PWS schemes to a single village to multi-village schemes. The main emphasis in the drinking water program was on quantity supplies and very little on quality issues. Through Water Quality Monitoring & Surveillance programme was part of National Drinking Water programme the issues of Water Quality Challenges are a long way from addressing this issue, as can be seen from the prospected health-based indicators viz. spread of TMR, Morbidly, etc., World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that water-borne diseases and Diarrheal diseases predominate from contaminated water and in-sanitary conditions plays a major health concern as it is Sixth in the causes of mortality and third in the list of morbidity. The influence of water-borne diseases and consequent losses particularly on below poverty level and marginalized communities is substantially resulting in huge loss of life. The Millennium Development Goals set by the United Nations had a commitment to reduce by half the proportion of the world for access to safe and clean drinking water by 2015. Govt. of India also in tune with United Nation directive has taken steps to incorporate the MDG in the National Rural Drinking Water Programme. The subsequent SDG 6.1 & 6.2 goals proclaimed by the UN clearly set a target for achieving safe drinking water & sanitation by 2030. In the backdrop of serious quality issues and consequent health issues, the need for focus on safe and clean drinking water has become inevitable. It is established beyond doubt that improvement to water quality cannot be achieved without systematic surveillance and monitoring of water supply system right from catchment to consumer end and addressing all the problems and risks on a continuous basis.

INTRODUCTION

India is on the verge of reaching water scarcity status, a problem that poses enormous implications on the country’s food security and rural livelihoods. The country has long-battled its scarcity issues through Watershed Development. Watershed management is the integration of technologies within the natural boundaries of a drainage area for optimum development of land, water and plant resources to meet the basic needs of people and livestock in a sustainable. Traditionally, watersheds have been viewed as hydrological units to conserve soil and treated water on compartmental approach basis. However, through the integrated watershed management approach, all natural resources in the watershed are comprehensively managed efficiently and effectively so that the rural livelihoods can be improved holistically through the convergence of various activities. Over the years the concept of watershed development has expanded from simple soil and water conservation to holistic natural resources development approach. Thus there is a paradigm shift from territory approach to a systemic approach of development. The Watershed Development Programme, as part of the PMKSY, a Govt. of India initiated Programme for effective management of water run-off and improvisation soil & moisture conservation activities including rainwater harvesting. Creating more watershed development projects can eliminate water stress in the long run. These projects can also help increase awareness on ecosystem services, build resilience to climate change, and improve overall quality-of-life for India’s rural communities.

INTRODUCTION

To derive the maximum benefit from any Water Resources Project, the regulated release of Water from the reservoirs and optimum utilization of water is of utmost importance. Hydraulic Gates and handling equipment like hoists form the vital components for controlling the discharges through the dam, canals, tunnels, penstocks, and outlets. The most important aspects related to the selection of suitable type of gates and their hoisting mechanism based upon the purpose and location including their design and drawings, manufacture & fabrication, testing includes (both in factory and field), Transportation to the site of Installation, Erection at the site in a defined sequence and finally field testing to simulated conditions (no-load and full load, or dry and wet testing). Besides, the operation of the gates as per the system requirements it is also very important to strictly adhere to scheduled maintenance as per the supplier’s recommendations. For systematic O&M, it is also essential to have a Comprehensive Manual. The O&M staff should not only be conversant with the content of the manual but also should be trained suitably for the job so as to ensure safe operation and effective maintenance of the gates and hoists in accordance with the requirements and field situation.

INTRODUCTION

Dams have been constructed for millennia, influencing the lives of humans and the ecosystems they inhabit. Gravity dams are solid concrete structures that maintain their stability against design loads from the geometric shape, mass and strength of the concrete. In the design of gravity dams, it is essential to determine the loads required for its stability. The structural response of material to different loads determines as to how it can economically be utilized in the design process. The large amount of water stored in a dam makes its failure to be catastrophic. Design and execution are very crucial for this kind of structures. Exceptional loadings must be taken in account during design phase, to take care of its highly destructive potential and social importance. Earthquake is one such natural disaster that has claimed many lives and destroyed lots of property, thus necessitating seismic analysis of concrete gravity dams. Many concrete gravity dams have been in service for over 60 years. Over this period many advancements in the methodologies and safety procedures have come in to vogue. Older existing dams often fail to meet these revised evaluation processes and norms. Safety criteria and structural rehabilitation to meet such criteria for these old structures may be costly and difficult. Traditional design procedure (also known as the pseudo-static or seismic coefficient method) was applied worldwide in dam design. Though, this procedure was an excellent for its time, as it provided a basis for computing earthquake forces, in the design of dams”. However, the well studied example of Koyna Dam subjected to the 1967 earthquake, demonstrated that the assumptions made in the traditional design procedure may underestimate earthquake forces, and lead to structural failure. The seismic safety of dams has been a serious concern since then which has been regarded as a watershed event in the development of seismic analysis and design of concrete gravity dams all over the world. Dams are particularly different from other types of structures, since stress analysis of these structures has to take into account dynamic response of the complete system interaction involving Dam Reservoir and Foundation.
