One of the components of HP-II was the development of a Real Time Decision support System (RTDSS) for operational management of Bhakra Beas Management Board (BBMB). The objective of the RTDSS project is a Real Time Operational DSS in BBMB, incorporating a state-of-the-art data Real Time Data Acquisition System (RTDAS) using an advanced communication system for real time operational management of the Bhakra and Beas Reservoir. The RTDSS integrates data from the RTDAS with data from external sources (e.g. weather forecast, snow cover, land cover and other global datasets), flow forecast modeling, optimization tools and analysis and decision support tools and makes them available through a user friendly interface.

The state experiences flash floods particularly in the Western Ghats including the Krishna and Upper Bhima basins. Sangli and Kolhapur districts in Krishna Basin and Pune and Solapur districts in Bhima basin have experienced severe floods in the last decade. Therefore, Government of Maharashtra has proposed to upgrade the existing HIS with real time data acquisition system (RTDAS) for Krishna and Bhima basins and to develop a real time stream flow forecasting (RTSF) and reservoir operation system (ROS) in the Krishna and Bhima river basins. Following the Mid Term Review of World Bank aided HP-II (October 1-14, 2009), RTDSS for Maharashtra is included as a new component. The RTDAS included the installation of new equipment to monitor rainfall, water level, river discharge, reservoir water level, reservoir outflow discharge and climatic variables. The system utilises a combination of INSAT and GSM/GPRS data communications to relay data in real time. A real time data centre has been established at Pune where IT hardware, databases and software have been installed. The RTDAS contract was awarded to Mechatronics and the RTDSS to DHI. The RTDAS uses General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) modem transfer information from the out-stations to the RTDAS database. The outstations are powered by using solar panel with a 30 day battery backup and data loggers can store up to 12 months.The RTDSS has been developed using DHI software. NAM was used for rainfall-runoff and MIKE11 for hydrodynamic modelling and forecasting. The DHI RTDSS has been developed as the interface between the database, models and user with bespoke web pages for the dissemination of outputs. The RTDSS database is linked to the RTDAS database to allow the real time transfer of information.

During July 23rd - July 27th 2012, Innovative Hydrology Supported the World Bank in presenting a Workshop on Hydrological Information Systems (HIS) at the National Water Academy in Pune, India. We have created an online learning course that consists of an Introduction and 7 Modules. Each of the link below, you will be able to download for your own personal viewing. The first table hasthe training modules in PDF and Powerpoint, the second table has the specifications in PDF and Word.

The training was organized by the Central Water Commission, National Water Academy, with support of the World Bank – DFID Trust Fund.Long lead flood forecasting based on ensemble flood forecasting is a promising emerging technique for flood forecasting. It aims at increasing the lead time of flood forecasts from 2-3 days up to 10 days in advance, as well as to attach a probability to forecast values. This approach can be very valuable in mitigating the impact of floods. This was the first time that the National Water Academy covered this topic.

The National Project on Aquifer Management (NAQUIM) is an initiative of the Ministry of Water Resources, Government of India, for mapping and managing the entire aquifer systems in the country. The vision of the National Project on Aquifer Management is to identify and map aquifers at the micro level, to quantify the available groundwater resources, and to propose plans appropriate to the scale of demand and aquifer characteristics, and institutional arrangements for participatory management. To establish a methodology for the National Project on Aquifer Management, the Central Ground Water Board is undertaking a pilot study of 6 areas in different hydrogeological terrains. The pilot study integrates multiple disciplines and scientific approaches, including remote sensing, hydrogeology, geophysics, hydrochemistry, drilling, groundwater modeling, and management approaches.
