Infographic 02:   Type of Source

Categorization

  • Deep Ground Water

Extracted through a machine drilled borehole well using submersible pumps.

  • Shallow Ground Water

It is the groundwater in the overburden at shallower depths that is extracted through shallow dug wells using pumps.

  • Lakes / Reservoirs

Lakes or reservoirs are utilized as a source in rural WS schemes as a last resort as water sharing with other priority needs is usually problematic. One other reason is the fluctuations of water levels seasonally and in dry periods as these are recharged by rain. Water extraction is always by pumping.

  • Rivers

River intake designs generally depend on the width, changes in seasonal flow rates, terrain, and ferocity of the flow. These can be barrage type weirs, partial weirs, or infiltration wells on the banks connected with horizontal RC pipes. River intakes are designed and constructed on the banks with one or more screens to strain floating debris. Extraction is by pumping.

  • Streams

Streams or small rivulets are frequently used sources in rural WS schemes. Stream intakes are generally weirs, barrage type or partial. Water from streams is exploited for a WS scheme having allowed for continuous free flow downstream ensuring adequate water for other uses.

  • Springs

Springs are water points where the groundwater emerges through cracks or weaker strata of the rock, under pressure, gravitational or otherwise. The flow in true springs will not vary with changes in climate. The design of spring intakes varies according to the nature of the spring.

  • NWSDB Bulk Supply

Rural areas falling just outside a Water Supply Scheme operated and managed by NWSDB have a good chance of procuring a bulk supply of water from the NWSDB scheme for their area, on payment. In such a case a bulk meter is provided to keep account of the quantity of water so supplied.

Uses and utilization of the Dashboard

Infographic – 01:   Condition of Source / Intake  

This Infographic displays the current condition of various types of sources / Intakes in the CBOs / WS Systems.

This enables the relevant and/or responsible agency to identify the better ones and appreciate the respective CBOs for their good maintenance inputs and the needy ones to improve the situation. Interventions could be either complete rehabilitation or introducing planned preventive maintenance or both.

Infographic – 02:  Type of Source

This Infographic displays the grouping of CBOs / WS Systems with different types of sources.

This enables the Planners to get an idea of the occurrence of the various water sources in different localities /DS divisions and use the information in their WS intervention planning.

Infographic – 01:    Pump Type

Categorization 

Submersible Pump
A submersible pump (or sub pump, electric submersible pump -ESP) is a device that has an air-sealed motor close-coupled to the pump body. The whole assembly is submerged in the water that is to be pumped. They have a ‘0’ suction head.

Centrifugal Pump
Centrifugal pumps are used to transport fluids by the conversion of rotational kinetic energy to the hydrodynamic energy of the water flow. The rotational energy typically comes from an engine or electric motor. The water enters the pump impeller along or near the rotating axis and is accelerated by the impeller, flowing radially outward into a diffuser chamber (casing), from which it exists. They have a limited suction head.

Uses and utilization of the Dashboard  

Infographic – 01:  Pump Type displays the CBO/WS Systems grouped under the type of pumps.
This enables the relevant and/or responsible agency to plan and organize the backup services and logistical support necessary for effective maintenance when called for.

Infographic – 02:  Brand of Pump displays the different brands of pumps used in the WS Systems.
This enables the relevant and/or responsible agency to promote the idea of standardization of pumps to a few more appropriate brands based on the type of application after getting information on the current usage pattern and distribution of pumps. The agency would then be in a position to request and arrange with the respective manufacturers &/or suppliers to establish their service centers in centralized locations ensuring more effective and efficient after-sales services such as easy access to spares, repairs & services of certified technicians to the CBOs.

Infographic – 03:  Condition of the Pump displays the present condition of the pumps installed in the various CBOs/WS systems.
This enables the relevant and/or responsible agency to plan for, and arrange the type of interventions required when called for. It could be technical advice on the selection of pumps for replacement where necessary, assisting in attending to immediate defects and setting up a good maintenance system in place, or linking backup support services providers with the CBOs.

Infographic – 04:  Pump Status displays the operational status of the pumps according to the remarks of the data collectors, based on perceptions of the CBOs / beneficiaries. 
This enables the relevant and/or responsible agency to plan for and arrange the type of interventions required. The rectification of main issues hindering effective operation such as high electricity costs, excessive vibration, and others could then be arranged through technical service providers.
