Executive Summary Pimpri Pre-Feasibility Study – Water Supply
October 10, 2012
Over the past two decades PCMC has implemented phased development of its water supply system, most recently utilizing JnNURM funds. As the city has grown there has been a strong political and social need to meet water demand at tap by augmenting and expanding raw water transmission, water treatment works, service reservoirs, feeder mains, and the distribution network. To date, PCMC has been successful in meeting this challenge. However, the city has already exceeded its allocation from its main raw water source, the Pawana River, and competition with agriculture makes future water rights highly unpredictable. The need to better manage the existing raw water resource by reducing physical losses in the distribution system is an unquestioned priority. The 24×7 project not only achieves this objective, but it does so with considerable financial and social benefit to the city.
The focus of this PFS Report is the 24×7 project technical specifications and costs, the project social and environmental impact examinations, the project financial and economic viability (FIRR and EIRR), and the proposed implementation arrangements.
