# DESIGN OF WATER PIPELINE TO IGWE O. C.

MANU PALACE
elev = 97.5 m

650 m 685 m
elev. =
99.8 m A elev. = 107.68 m
C
Borehole pumping
station

## Assume population of Ewu Nkwo = 1000

Unit water demand 10 gpcd = 10 x 4.55 = 45.5 litres pcd
Add for waste 20% = 0.20 x 45.5 = 9.10 + 45.5 = 54.60
Use 55 lcpd

## Water demand = 55 x 1000 lpd

= 55 m /d
Assuming 8 hr pumping per day, average day demand
= 55m3/8hr = 3
6.875 m /hr

Design source and transmission for 1.2 (6.875) = 8.25 m /hr

Any distribution system for 2 (6.875) = 13.75 m /hr
Design of Pipeline

AB: Q= 8.25 m /hr
head loss due to difference in elevation = 25 - ((107.68 - 99.8) + 3)
= 14.12 m
This loss is encountered over a distance of (650 + 685) = 1335 m
ie 14.12/1335 = 0.010577
10.58 m / 1000 m

## Q = 8.25 m3/hr = 2.29 lps

h/L = 10.58
From chart
V = 0.75 m/s
d = 80 mm ɸ
Alternatively
h = f L v2

Q = 8.25 m3/hr
L = 1335 m

Use 75mm ɸ Al Class B

## Assume population of 5000 persons

Use 55 lcpd
Average water daily = 55 x 5000 = 275000 lpd
