After the success of the KUWASIP project, in 2013, the municipality of Hubli-Dharwad chose Veolia to remodel its water supply distribution system for further areas. It is estimated that the project will serve 24/7 water supply to 150,000 citizens, including slum dwellers.
Veolia is responsible for the storage and distribution of water all day, every day and delivered under pressure to customers’ taps. This comes as a major change for the local population who currently has access to water only for a few hours a day. We are also revamping customer services to meet, listen to and inform users and to help them deal with the new system. With Veolia’s state-of-the-art network design and leakage detection and rectification solutions have been able to prove that it is possible to supply safe water on a continuous basis.
Our solutions have enabled the city to extend the lifetime of the pipeline networks, with minimal environmental impact. In this process, we operate 270 km of network and 27,500 water connections in this zone.
