Rajasthan is a semi-arid region with severe water resource constraints: while being India's largest state by land size with a population of 80.7 million as of 2021, it has only 1% of the country's estimated water resources. For drinking and irrigation, 90 percent of Rajasthan's population is reliant on groundwater.
Jhunjhunu, an ancient town in the state of Rajasthan, is located in the northeastern part of the state. The town of Jhunjhunu is the district headquarters. Currently, the water supply service in Jhunjhunu is unreliable coupled with quality issues and huge distribution losses. The Government of Rajasthan has joined hands with a leading EPC contractor.
To Overcome The Challenges
Rajasthan government has introduced a scheme under RUSDP (Rajasthan Urban sector development Programme) to invest in water distribution and sewage network to cover 100 percent of the city’s area/road length, while sewerage works will be conned to the smaller area considering ongoing sewerage.
- Designed a water supply network to reduce NRW by up to 7% within District Metering area
- Includes overall 12% and pressurized water of 12m at the consumer end
- Service level improvement from 75 to 135 litres per person (capita) per day (LPCD)
- The project is funded by the Asian Development bank
Benefits Arising From This Project
