The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board has entered into a partnership with IBM to streamline water distribution in Bangalore through the creation of an IT-enabled command centre to monitor and manage water distribution in the city.
The partnership is aimed at giving BWSSB engineers a realtime update on water supply across its network through a single command centre in the city. BWSSB will be using IBM’s Big Data and predictive analytics technology via IBM Intelligent Operations Centre for the command centre.
“The command centre will monitor the waterflow in 284 of 784 bulk flow meters in the city and provide a clear, single view of the functioning of all the bulk flow meter, amount of water transmitted by each of them and other information. Data from every working flow meter will be reported on a single dashboard,” the Executive Engineer (New Initiatives and Design Cell), BWSSB, Dr P N Ravindra said.
Bangalore’s massive population growth from 5.4 million in 2000 to over 10 million at present has made it difficult to meet the permissible per capita demand in the city and equitable distribution of available water across the city is now a challenge, he said.
