Project Overview

  • What is Hydrology Project

World Bank aided Hydrology Project has been implemented in two phases including the Hydrology Project (1995-2003) and Hydrology Project II (2006-2014). The project has been central to efforts in India to improve the planning, development, and management of water resources, as well as flood forecasting and reservoir operations in real-time. The project has led to a significant change in the availability and reliability of hydro-meteorological and groundwater data in India. Water resources development projects (such as hydraulic structures, irrigation development through surface water and/or groundwater) and other water and hydro-power infrastructure developments can now be based on accurate (geo-) hydrological information and be designed safely and economically. Where real-time data acquisition systems have been implemented, reservoir operation can now be based on real-time hydrological information and precipitation forecasts, which will help to minimize the likelihood of floods and ensure the availability of water for various uses.

The previous Hydrology Project Phase I has benefitted nine States (Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa and Tamil Nadu) and 6 central agencies (Ministry of Water Resources - MoWR, Central Water Commission - CWC, Central Ground Water Board - CGWB, Central Water and Power Research Station - CWPRS, National Institute of Hydrology - NIH and India Meteorological Department - IMD), while four new states (Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Puducherry and Punjab) and two central agencies (Bhakra Beas Management Board - BBMB and Central Pollution Control Board -CPCB) joined during Phase II. Overall, the Hydrology Project has so far involved 29 implementing agencies in 13 states (State Surface Water and Groundwater Departments) and 8 central government agencies. The project offered a platform for water agencies in (mostly) peninsular India to learn from each other, which encouraged them to modernize existing hydro-meteorological monitoring systems, move from manual to Real-Time Data Acquisition Systems (RTDAS), and develop tools for Integrated Water Resources Planning and Management with the objective to enhance the productivity and cost effectiveness of water related investments. Some of the key achievements of the Hydrology Project are:

  • Development of India’s Hydrological Information System (HIS)

THIS includes the development of monitoring networks of hydro-meteorological and groundwater observation stations and data management systems for surface water, groundwater and water quality data.

Networks of Hydro-meteorological Stations

Extended observation networks for measuring hydro-meteorological and geo-hydrological parameters with improved technology for reliable and accurate measurement – including automation with RTDAS stations, which transmit data directly to data processing centres - were developed in various parts of the country. The RTDAS for real-time hydrological monitoring include radar type water level recorders for rivers and reservoirs, snow gauges, automatic weather stations, Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP), and Digital Water Level Recorders (DWLR) equipped with telemetry for groundwater observation wells. Real-time monitoring of water quality data has also been initiated by CPCB and CWC under the project at few critical locations on the Ganges and Yamuna Rivers.

Web-based Data Management System

Web-based software has been developed to modernize the desktop based data entry, processing, storage and dissemination systems developed under HP-I into a centralized database management system, in order to ensure uniformity in HIS procedures across the States and Regions and release the burden of software maintenance for State Agencies. Users in State and Central Agencies are now enabled to enter and process data on-line, within their own virtual data repository, and require only a computer with internet connection to upload and access their data. The software developed during the project tenure are (a) Surface Water Information System (e-SWIS), (b) Groundwater Estimation and Management System (e-GEMS), and (c) GIS based web-Portal for Water Quality Data (e-WQIS).

In addition, the Centre Water Commission in a joint venture with Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is developing a Web Enabled Water Resources Information System called India-WRIS WebGIS. The main objective of this system is provide a Single Window’ solution for comprehensive, authoritative and consistent data & information of India’s water resources along with allied natural resources in a standardized national GIS framework (WGS-84 datum and LCC projection) tools to search, access, visualize, understand and analyze the data for assessment, monitoring, planning, development and finally Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). As the development goes further, it is envisaged that all the web-based software developed under the HP-II will all merge into India-WRIS WebGIS to make more comprehensive Information System.

  • River Basin Planning and Water Resources Management Tools

The Project developed and implemented several Decision Support Systems (DSS) for water resources planning, flood forecasting and real-time reservoir operation systems for flood management, and Hydrologic Design Aids (HDA). These tools enable decision makers and water resources management agencies to improve integrated water resources development planning and management for river basins and to enhance productivity and cost effectiveness of water related investments.

Decision Support System (DSS) for Water Resources Planning and Management

Under the aegis of NIH and assisted by consultants, an extensive DSS for integrated water resources planning, development and management was developed and implemented. The DSS (P) modules include surface water planning; groundwater use planning; integrated reservoir operation; irrigation management; drought monitoring, assessment and management; planning of conjunctive use of surface and groundwater; and water quality management. On pilot basis, the DSS framework was set-up in 13 river basins across 9 States. The framework basically includes a dashboard to display, analyze and test various water use and development scenarios in GIS and tabular platforms. This dashboard is license free and can be used to process data on a GIS platform. It further includes proprietary water resources system and (distributed) rainfall-runoff models for hydrological modelling and water allocation simulation. The DSS-P has supported the understanding of the impacts of various interventions and decisions such as recommendations for new structures to augment drinking water supply, irrigation management through enhanced reservoir operations, opportunities for crop diversification, development of plans for conjunctive use of surface water and groundwater along with artificial recharge, and sustainable groundwater management. Kerala has championed DSS-P applications through 17 applications and plans to upscale the applications to all river basins in Kerala.

Hydrological Design Aids (HDA):

Under the aegis of CWC and assisted by consultants, Hydrologic Design Aids (HDA) software has been developed for use by Surface Water Agencies. The software facilitates and expedites the hydrological design of infrastructures (e.g. design flood analysis for gauged and un-gauged catchments), water resources availability assessments and reservoir sedimentation analysis, and would also, for the first time, provide the basis for uniform project design approaches among States and between States and Central Agencies. The HDA software has in-built facilities to integrate GIS and Excel type functionalities. Part of the data analysis and processing functionalities included in the previously employed HYMOS system has also been incorporated into the HDA.

Stream Flow Forecasting and Reservoir Operation Systems for Flood Management

For the first time in India stream flow forecasting and real-time reservoir operation will be able to provide a significant lead time for flood early warning and disaster preparedness, even for smaller catchments. The system makes use of seasonal and three days satellite based precipitation forecasts (Regional Integrated Multi-hazard Early Warning System - RIMES) and integrates real-time hydrological information with hydrological, hydrodynamic and reservoir operation models. The system facilitates the scheduling of reservoir releases and the operation of hydropower turbines and spillway gates, the issuance of flood warnings, and the deployment of area evacuation measures. The Bhakra-Beas Management Board (BBMB) makes extensive use of these tools for operational planning of the Bhakra and Pong dams in the Sutlej and Beas river basins (Real-Time Decision Support System - RTDSS). The Maharashtra Surface Water Department uses a similar system in the Upper Krishna and Upper Bhima river basins for the integrated (flood) management of 42 reservoirs (Real-Time Stream Flow Forecasting and Reservoir Operation System - RTSF & ROS). The system will help with minimizing flood impacts in the lower reaches of the river basins by minimizing the sudden flow releases from reservoirs which has been one of the major reasons for downstream floods. BBMB has been able to improve its management of Bhakra and Pong dams during the 2013 monsoon season, to the extent that no flooding occurred, whereas in 1988 severe flooding occurred at the end of the monsoon season under the same total inflow conditions in both years.

  • Groundwater Management - Aquifer Mapping

CGWB has commenced the National Aquifer Mapping Program (NAQUIM) to prepare aquifer management plans and introduce participatory community groundwater management across the nation. Under the Hydrology Project, 6 pilot projects were selected to test advanced geophysical survey techniques and guide the implementation of the National Aquifer Mapping Program. The pilot projects included the organization of existing databases, hydro-geological modeling and field tests, geophysical investigations and exploratory drilling. Geophysical tests involving advanced technologies, including heliborne Transient Electro Magnetic (TEM) geophysical surveys, were carried out for the first time in India.

  • Capacity Building

raining Framework was established early in the Project and Training Coordinators were appointed. Central Agencies (CWC, CGWB, NIH and CWPRS) played a pivotal role in providing a variety of training courses, including Training-of-Trainer (ToT) courses for the various HP-II Implementing Agencies. Training courses provided under the Project, covered a gamut of topics, including real-time data dissemination, DSS-P, MIKEBASIN, MIKESHE, WQ analysis, Geo-informatics, telemetry, data processing, HDA, RTDAS and RTDSS, Drought management, O&M protocols, etc. In addition to the various trainings, guidance were also provided to all the IAs regarding their transition to sustainable institutions and change management. A series of HIS awareness workshops were conducted and a manual was developed and shared with all agencies to take up HIS promotion activities forward. Some specific visual tools (posters, brochures, pamphlets) were also designed for wider circulation. As HIS data are being widely used by various stakeholders, Hydrological Data User Groups (HDUGs) were formed in all HP-II implementing states and meetings are being conducted with the user groups on regular basis.

Project Achievements

  • Summary of Achievements and Benefits of Hydrology Project

Overall, the water information systems (hydro-meteorological, ground water and water quality data) developed under HP-I and HP-II are being extensively used for project design, water resources planning, scientific investigations and protection of water quality. The Hydrological Information System (HIS) developed will ensure significant savings on future investments and reduced maintenance costs.

The Achievements and Benefits under the Project can be broadly summed up into two main categories:

At the national/central basin level - establishment of Hydrological Information Systems, standard protocols for data generation, storage, analysis and dissemination. Improved water information allows for improved water resources assessments, including ground water; use of nation-wide standardized planning and design procedures; improved technical basis for project review and approval; support for the development and implementation of national and state water policies; improved inter-state coordination on related sector issues; non-disputable data sets to resolve inter-state water disputes; optimal water resources management; and improved uses of data amongst all water users. Benefits accrued not only in the Hydrology Project States, but also to CWC and CGWB offices across the country.
At the state basin/project level - establishment of HIS across the State and special studies/applications in selected basins/areas of the States. Improved water information allows for improved water resources planning and design of water-related infrastructures; improved Ground Water management; reduced vulnerability to and enhanced management of drought and floods; improved management of reservoirs and thereby improved hydropower and irrigated agricultural productivity; reduced impact of poor water quality on public health; improved state water policies and regulations; and improved awareness on the scarcity and importance of water. Improved flood management, adequate drought relief programs and improved drinking water quality will directly benefit the poor. However, these benefits accrued only in the Hydrology Project States.
  • National/Central Basin Level Benefits

National data Generation, Storage, Analysis and Reporting: The data generated under HP-I and HP-II is an input to the WRIS. The HP-I and HP-II have helped in development of software for HIS, viz. WISDOM, SWDES, GEMS, GWDES, eSWIS, eGEMS (under development), etc. These software and HIS established under the Projects are assisting CWC in issuing timely flood warnings. HP-I and HP-II had established and strengthened water quality labs in CGWB and CWC. The data generated under the Projects are being used for analysis as well as for routine reporting on the state of the surface and ground water resources.

Ground Water Development & Management: Collection and analysis of ground water (levels and water quality) was prioritized by CGWB and GW departments of the States under HP-I and HP-II. The institutional arrangement setup during the Projects and the data collected are being used for continuous revisions to GW assessments (every two years) and form the basis for GW planning at district and block levels. The need for near real-time reporting of the GW status during droughts and for seasonal planning has driven improvement in GW data collections and sharing. In Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra, GW data is reported weekly across state government, from state officials who review and classify drought to local administrators who make day-to-day plans for addressing critical shortages. As has been informed by the States of Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra, these data were used in several States for community-based GW management that contributed to agricultural productivity increases of 20-40%.

The Pilot Project on Aquifer Mapping for ascertaining the efficacy of advanced geophysical techniques including heli-borne TEM geophysical surveys in delineating the 3-D configuration of aquifers was also taken up under HP-II. Preliminary assessments showed that heli-borne geophysical surveys are fast (~2,000 measurements/hour), data dense (~1,000 depth-wise information points per km2), precise and can be conducted in remote and inaccessible areas. The pilot study indicates the efficacy of heli-borne TEM and other surveys for facilitating in NAQUIM.

Hydrological Design Aids: The development of “Hydrological Design Aids (SW)” aims at standardizing the design practices in form of design aids using state of art technology to the extent possible. This will help in preparing the hydrology portion of the detailed project report (DPR) of water resources projects in a standardized format and reducing the time required for carrying the hydrological studies. The study is mainly targeted for practicing engineers from states and other implementing agencies.

  • State and Basin-Level Benefits

Development of State Water Plans and Policies. The HIS has been used in several states to support development of plans and policies. In Maharashtra the HIS guided preparation of the State Water Plan; in Karnataka it formed the basis of new Ground Water policy; the BBMB developed an MoU for sharing flood forecast and water allocation data with riparian states including Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan. Most importantly, the States are now opening towards sharing their data with other State and Central organisations, for example the HIS data collected by Maharashtra Water Resources Department in the Krishna Bhima Basin is being freely shared on their website:

Water Resources Development Planning and Management. Water resources planning and management has been greatly informed by the HIS and through application of the DSS-P (Planning). The DSS-P includes tools to analyze flow time series and GIS information, to create awareness on water management issues, and to facilitate modelling for long- and short-term planning.

Applications of HIS.

Irrigation development (or rehabilitation) remains a key focus for major water resources development planning in India. In Maharashtra, a total of over 700 minor and medium projects have used data from the HIS during the HP-II period. Maharashtra also recognizes the role of HIS data in the development of the real-time flood management system developed under the Project. Karnataka-SW has provided HIS data for the planning of five water supply projects for drinking water, six hydropower projects and a number of industrial projects. Gujarat-SW has identified a number of check dams and other designs of hydraulic structures where HIS data have been used. Gujarat-GW has studied the use of GW for minor irrigation in tribal areas, as an example of how the HIS data have been used for water resources planning. In Chhattisgarh, some 30 irrigation development projects, five town water supply projects, five flood protection schemes and 32 hydropower and min-hydro schemes have been provided with data from the HIS during the Project. Chhattisgarh also reports the use of GW data in the planning of irrigation schemes. Andhra Pradesh identified the use of GW data for studies on canal lining, water logging issues and the impact of GW quality on crop selection.

Applications of DSS-P

have included (i) use as a state-level hub for water resources data and information; (ii) river basin modelling for water resources planning; (iii) short-term planning; and (iv) drought advisory services through websites linked to the DSS-P database. Specific applications included:

a. Seasonal Reservoir Operation Planning. Byconsidering current reservoir levels and historical inflows the DSS-Psupports scenarioplanning for water allocation.Maharashtra has, for example, improved operation of reservoirs in the Upper Godavari Basin, thereby avoiding water scarcity during the 2013-14 dry season.

b. Drought Management. Droughts are often characterized by low post-monsoon storage in reservoirs and falling GW levels. DSS-P applications in various states have been used to determine sustainable water abstractions during droughts.

c. Inter-basin Transfers. The river basin model with DSS-P enables analysis of proposed inter-basin transfers. For example, the proposed transfer of water from the Mahanadi to Tandula reservoir was assessedin terms of amounts and timing, and the potential benefits and impacts of the proposed transfers.

d. Multi-purpose/Multi-ReservoirOperations. The integrated reservoir operation tool in the DSS evaluates multi-reservoir operational strategies. This has been used for the Kadana, Panam and Bhadar Reservoirs in Gujarat, for the delivery of water to the irrigation, drinking water and industrial sectors, as well as for flood control in downstream reaches of the Mahi River. This application is used to refine reservoir operations (flood control levels and operational rules); examine changes in water demands from command areas, drinking water users and industrial areas influenced by the reservoirs; and consider the impacts of changing climate and upstream conditions. Output allows reservoir managers to evaluate alternative operation strategies.

e. Water Availability Assessments. The KarnatakaGeomatics Center developed an extended application enabling the identification of optimum locations for new projects and industrial units based on water availability. The application uses information generated by the HIS (including rainfall and station locations), digital topographical maps and rainfall-runoff relations in estimating the water availability at a given location at a given time of the year.

f. Conjunctive SW-GW Management. Water logging and zones of critical water deficit within two main distributaries of the Tungabhadra irrigation system in Karnataka were assessed using the DSS-P. Scenarios were examined that partition available SW from the canal network amongst the users, with different GW abstraction rates, to assess impacts on GW levels and to minimize deficits at the tail ends. This has helped move towards equitable water delivery in distributaries while maintaining sustainable GW levels.

g. Urban Water Supplies Augmentation Projects. Several states developed and assessed solutions for augmenting major city water supplies and have used these assessments to guide major investments. Maharashtra augmented water supplies in Pune and achieved substantial savings including as a result of replacing a proposed open channel with a pipeline saving 8.78 gigawatt hour/year (valued at USD 6.4M/per year). In Kerala, proposed check dams to augment water supplies contributed savings of over USD2.5M.

Real-Time Data Acquisition, Streamflow Forecasting, DSS and Reservoir Operation Systems.

The objectives of the real-time data, forecasting,DSS and ROS are to support integrated reservoir operations decisions for optimum utilization of water and for flood warnings and implementation of evacuation measures to minimize the loss of live and damage to property. Benefits include: (i) reduction in water losses enabling the maximum economic outcomes to be achieved from water; (ii) reduction in flood damages, particularly at the end of the monsoon; (iii) balancing of short- and long-term objectives for reservoir management; and (iv)improved dry season water management to significantly improve water supply.

i. In theSutlej-Beas Basin RTDAS and RTDSS enables improved organization, access and evaluation of hydro-meteorological data and forecasting of snowmelt and runoff and estimates of corresponding river flow to support a well-structured, user-friendly and complete water resources management system for the basin.Using satellite-based quantitative precipitation predictions, improved real-time data and improved hydrological knowledge, BBMB has improved the management of Bhakra and Pong reservoirs to prevent flooding and maximize storage (Table A4). The average annual flood damage for the period 2007-10 was INR 1,058 million (US$17.6 million) and an average of 23 lives were lost per year. Given the huge 2013 monsoon inflow damages and deaths well above these averages would have been expected. Project investment in the basin amounted was INR 370 million (US$6.2 million) or 15% of the 2010 flood damage bill, and much less that the potential 2013 flood damage bill. The pay-back period for the investment is thus very short and the benefit/cost ratio high, even if all other water management-related benefits are ignored.

Total reservoir inflow for 2013 was similar to 1988 when the worst floods in living memory were experienced in the Punjab, accompanied by unprecedented loss of life and property damage. Total flood damage in India and Pakistan was US$6.8 billion and the death toll was 731. 1.25 million people were displaced, and 1.5 million hectare of agricultural lands were flooded and a total of 270,000 km2 were affected. If the flood damage downstream of Bhakra and Pong reservoirs was only 10% of these totals it would amount to around US$700 million. The RTDSS developed under HP-II helped to avoid flood damages of this magnitude in 2013 by enabling improved synchronization of the releases from both dams, and by informing pre-releases prior to the flood peaks based on inflow predictions.

ii. Maharashtra developed a RTSF and ROS for the Upper Krishna and Bhima Basins to reduce flood damage and improve dry season water supply through improved management of 46 major and medium reservoirs using daily/hourly flood forecasting. Previously reservoirs were operated using rigid rules requiring reservoirs to be kept full near the end of the wet season. In the case of heavy rain late in the season, reservoirs releases would cause major floods downstream. Devastating floods occurred in 2005 and 2006. In 2006, flooding downstream of Koyna Dam caused damages worth an estimated at INR 3,931 million (~US$65 million) and the loss of 68 lives (Table A5). Accurate one-day flood forecasts would have enabled major reductions in peak flows (and hence flood damage) through improved reservoir management. In Sangli, peak flow reductions would have reduced damages to a third of historic losses (INR 995 million).The cost of the RTDAS and RTSF&ROS amounted to about INR 310 million (~US$5 million) or just 8% of the 2006 flood damage bill, implying a high benefit/cost ratio. The new system was first operational in the 2013 monsoon when forecasted reservoir and river water levels and discharges were disseminated to the responsible authorities and were made available to the public through the web.

iii. Hundreds of large reservoirs across India provide dry season storage for multiple uses including hydropower, irrigation and other water supply, while also providing flood mitigation by reducing peak flows downstream. However, reservoir operationscan exacerbate floodingby adhering to fixed rules uninformed by flow forecasts. High rainfall events occurring when reservoirs are close to full-supply level mean reservoirs operators must rapidly release large volumes to minimize the risk of structural damage to the dam. This can cause huge flood damages and human misery downstream. Devastating induced floodsoccurred in the Krishna Basin (in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh) in October 2009,leading to a death toll of over 300, an affected area of 310,000 km2, over 2.5 million people displaced (mostly poor people)and direct losses of INR 320 billion. While floods were initiated by incessant rains, this was exacerbated when authorities released additional water from rain-swollen reservoirs. While forecasts, early warnings and real-time operations(coupled with disaster management services) would not have avoided all damages and deaths, these systems could have significantly mitigated impacts. The cost of these systems for the Krishna Basin would represent less than one percent of the damage of the October 2009 floods.

Real-time Water Quality Monitoring Systems(RTWQMS).

CPCB has successfully trialed a network of tenwater quality monitoring stations (measuring 10 parameters) within the Ganga Basin that provide data every 15 minutes directly to a control center and website. CWC also installed three real-time water quality stations in the basin (monitoring six parameters). This new system can potentially lead to greatly improved water quality information for the Ganga Basin.

i. Documented indications of the value of these real-time data include: (i) improvements in water quality during the Maha Kumbh 2013/Magh Mela 2014 (major festival where millions bathe in the Ganga River); (ii) early detection of elevated levels of ammonia the Yamuna River to inform closure/opening of the intake to Delhi’s water supply; and (iii) informing the resolution of inter-state water issues between Delhi and Haryana.

ii. Compared to the time consuming standard (manual) data acquisition system for water quality data, the real-time system is seen as important in providing: (i) a continuous record of water quality data to detect diurnal variations; (ii) instantaneous information allowing immediate mitigation actions, publically visible on the web; and (iii) information to help understand the water quality processes in the river system.

Operation of Water Resources Schemes.

Several states have used the HIS to guide the operation of water resources schemes including:

i. Andhra Pradesh: conjunctive GW studies, municipal water supply, drought monitoring and GW assessments

ii. Gujarat: solid waste management, storm water management, reservoir operations, siltation studies, evaporation studies and water quality studies

iii. Kerala: well-drilling for farmers, mini water supply schemes and drought mitigation work

iv. Maharashtra: reservoir operation for flood management, Hydropower generation and irrigation management.

Water Quality and Environmental Assessments.

Water quality data and data for environmental assessments are needed for all water resources development projects as part of mandatory regulatory processes and scientific investigations. Several states have used the HIS for this purpose including:

i. Andhra Pradesh: various specific water quality investigations, routine reporting roles, water quality assessments and studies and specific monitoring requirements

ii. Gujarat: water quality investigations and assessments, and planning studies

iii. Gujarat: monitoring GW salinity, and design of projects to improve GW quality through artificial recharge

iv. Karnataka: water quality assessments for projects, base and trend analysis and evaluation of GW quality

v. Kerala: water quality studies of blocks and Environment Impact Assessment reports

vi. Madhya Pradesh:water quality monitoring, investigations and assessments

  • Project and Sub-Basin Benefits
