Water Supply and Treatment
Tamil Nadu Water Supply Drainage board (TWAD) is responsible for executionof Water Supply Schemes / Drainage Schemes in Corporations, Municipalities,Panchayats, Villages in the entire State of Tamil Nadu except Chennai City whereChennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (CMWSSB) is executing thework.Government of India Ministry of Urban Development, Central Public Health and Environment Engineering Organisation published a Manual known as " Manual on Water Supply and Treatment ". This Manual has laid down the basic principles relating to planning, identification of sources of water, development and transmission, water treatment, distribution system testing and other related administrative aspects and alsoexplain in details the proper approach to each problem.The salient points relevant to audit together with various orders of Governmentand TWAD Board and audit approaches are given below. The CPHEEO Manual provisions indicated are with reference to the 1999 Publications.
The objectives of any Water Supply System is to supply safe wholesome water inadequate quantity at convenient points and at reasonable cost to the users. In order toencourage personal and household hygiene proper planning is necessary in theformulation and implementation of water supply projects.Engineering decisions are required to fix the area and population to be served, thedesign period, the per capita water supply, the water required for the other needs in thearea, the nature and location of facilities to be provided and points of water supplyintake and waste water disposal.Detailed investigation should be carried out in regard to nature of each source(surface or subsurface) its reliability for quality and quantity, the nature of developmentand type of treatment required and mode of the conveyance from the source to theconsumers. Different alternatives should be considered in detail and the economicallyviable and technically feasible alternative should be selected by applying financialanalysis techniques.Four stages are involved in the formulation of a water supply project before the project is taken up for execution.
