India WRIS Achievements
The India-WRIS WebGIS application provides comprehensive spatial and non-spatial data and information on water resources along with other related information in a standardized national
GIS framework on public domain. The new developments taken during the previous months by the TAMC - India-WRIS team are as follows:
► New Graphic User Interface designed for the front page of India-WRIS. ► Cloud environment setup is in progress for hosting the existing India-WRIS system at NIC. ► ArcGIS 10.6 along with Postgress database server has been installed at the NIC Cloud.
Procurement is one of the key elements of the NHP
Major procurement items including: Real Time Data Acquisition System (RTDAS – AWS, ARG and AWLR), Piezometer, DWLR, SCADA and ADCP.
As on date, 909 procurement packages have been reviewed and cleared by NPMU on the MIS. 94 out of 98 bid documents received at NMPU till date, with estimated cost of Rs. 717 crore, have been reviewed and cleared.
Under the Water Resources Monitoring System (WRMS) component, 42 bid documents (RTDAS-24, DWLR-5, SCADA-6 and ADCP-7) amounting to about Rs. 294 crore have been cleared by NPMU out of which 12 bid documents worth about Rs. 85.5 crore have been floated and remaining 30 bid documents are in process of floating. Further, the bid documents for generation of DEM 0.5m and DEM 3-5 m amounting to about Rs. 130 crore under the Water Resources Information Systems (WRIS) component have been floated.
For three river basins, the procurement of Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) consultancy amounting to Rs. 60 crore is at financial evaluation stage and expected to be finalized by October, 2018.
NPMU and TAMC have taken several steps including conducting 5-days procurement training, uploading of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the MIS, and sharing of Standard Bidding Documents (SBDs) and sample documents with the IAs in order to streamline the procurement capacity and processes.
Few contracts have been awarded under the NHP:
DVC, SOI and Uttrakhand have awarded the works for construction of data centres and renovation of water quality labs at IRI Haldwani and Roorkee.
National Project Management Unit (NPMU) of National Hydrology Project (NHP) along with Technical Assistance and Management Consultant (TAMC) intensified the interactions with the Implementation Agencies (IA) for initiating some of the technical studies proposed within the Annual Work Plan (AWP) of 2018-2019. The technical team had detailed discussions with agencies regarding the data requirements for the various studies to be undertaken by them. It was suggested that the following type of studies may be initiated by the agencies during this year.
► Reservoir sedimentation surveys
► Dam-break analysis
► Flood modelling and forecasting
- CWPRS and NIH were assigned to guide & help the IAs with their expertise in the field of bathymetric survey, modelling, various studies etc and to build the capacity for agencies. This would help to save time required for tendering process and also reduce expenditure from the government exchequer. In the first phase, reservoir sedimentation survey of Singda Dam in Manipur and the Dams under the Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) are envisaged to be taken up. Survey of river cross sections of the Damodar River till its outfall will also be initiated shortly thereafter.
- Technical team has also been advising the IAs to finalise their instrumentation network particularly with respect to the intended objective of flood forecasting etc.
- So far, the hydro-met network of Manipur, Tripura, Sikkim, Nagaland and DVC has been finalised. Finalisation of hydro-met network for Mizoram and Meghalaya is in progress.
- The team has also taken up the task of updating the hydro-met network of Kerala from the point of view of flood forecasting.
- Technical team has undertaken many visits to the agencies during this period with a more emphasis on the agencies who joined the NHP for the first time. This handholding of the rest of agencies shall also continue in the coming months to kick start some new studies and to achieve the progress on the studies initiated.
