 Prefatory :

Nagercoil is a Special Grade Municipality and the headquarters of Kanyakumari District. It lies at a distance of 20 KM from Kanyakumari. It is located at a latitude of 8010'47" N and longitude of 77'21'50" E. The town, at present including the extended areas has got an area of about 49.10 sq km. The population as per 2011 census after merger of four nearby Village Panchayats (1.Kariamonickapuram, 2.Gandhipuram, 3.NorthSoorankudy, 4.Peruvilai) and one Town Panchayat (Asaripallam) is 246753.The elevation of the town ranges from 12m to 71m. The main occupation of the people is agriculture. The average annual rainfall is 1064 mm.

Existing Water Supply Arrangements:

The existing water supply schemes now functioning for Nagercoil Municipality with Mukkadal Dam and Ananthanar Channal as source are as detailed below.

a) Water Supply Scheme executed by the then Travancore – Cochin State during 1941.

b) First Water Supply Improvement Scheme executed by TWAD Board during 1978.

c) Work carried out under deposit scheme by Municipality during 1987-88.

d) Second Water Supply Improvement Scheme executed by TWAD Board during 2002.

Water Supply Scheme Executed By Travancore-cochin State:

The scheme was executed during the year 1941 and designed for an ultimate population (year 1971) of 77800.The total ultimate demand was (1.25 mgd) 5.68 mld or 73 Mcft/ year.

i) Head Works:

An impounding reservoir with a drawable capacity of 60.99 Mcft or 381 million gallons has been constructed across Mukkadal valley, which is about 12 Kms. north of Nagercoil.

ii) Conveying Main:

The water from the reservoir was drawn through 500 mm dia. draw off pipe provided at the valve tower and then gravitated through 500 mm MS pipe up to the tunnel end and then through 400 mm dia. steel pipe coated with cement motor both inside and outside. The length of the gravity main was 12045 m up to the treatment unit at Krishnankoil and was designed for a carrying capacity of 3938 lpm.

iii) Treatment Units:

The treatment unit in Krishnankoil was located in an area of about 4.30 Acres. There were two rapid sand filter beds each of capacity 90,800 lit. (20,000 gallons) per hour and third filter bed for 1,13,500 litre capacity (25,000 gallons) per hour. The overall capacity of filter unit is 2,95,100 litre (65,000 gallons) per hour or 7.08 Mld. The filtered water was collected in a R.R masonry sump cum ground level service reservoir of capacity of 13.98 LL having two compartments.

iv) Service Reservoirs and Distribution System:

The contour of the town varies from (+) 12m to (+) 71m. The portion of the town lying between 12 m to 27 m contour was taken as low level zone and the area above 27 m contour was taken as high level zone. For the high level zone, the water was pumped through 300 mm dia CI pipes for a length of 1311 m to two numbers of over head tanks of 8 lakh litres capacity (located nearby water tank road at Christhunagar) by means of three numbers of centrifugal pump sets 40 HP, 40 HP and 30 HP capacity and then supplied to the public through a network of distribution system. The total length of D' system in both the zones is 96 Kms.

First Water Supply Improvement Scheme To Nagercoil Municipality:

A water supply Improvement Scheme for Nagercoil Municipality was sanctioned for Rs.46.00 lakhs in G.O.Ms.No.1211 / PWD / dated: 24.08.1974 and it was subsequently revised to Rs.97.00lakhs and sanctioned in G.O.Ms.No.30 / MAWS / WS.V / dated: 08.02.1993. The improvement scheme was designed for an ultimate population of 1.50,000 (Year 1991) at a prorate supply of 90 lpcd for a daily supply of 3MGD and the scheme was executed and commissioned during 1979.

i) Head Works:

The capacity of the impounding reservoir (Mukkadal Dam) had been increased from 84 mcft to 105 mcft by providing a surplus regulator with movable steel shutters to meet the demand of 3 MGD. This had been achieved by increasing the FRL by 1.22 m (4 feet) height i.e. from 60.98 m to 62.20 m.

ii) Conveying Main:

The water from the reservoir was drawn through the existing 500 mm (20'') steel scour pipe and then conveyed through a parallel gravity main. One break pressure tank had been provided in the conveying main at LS 2745 m.

iii) Treatment Units:

Additional treatment unit of 10 MLD Capacity with two numbers of twin type rapid sand filters of size 6.25 m x 5.75 m had been provided. Out of the two units, one unit was treated as stand bye. With these additional units, the total capacity of treatment unit had been increased to 17.08 mld out of which one 5 mld unit was kept as stand bye against the ultimate demand of 13.62 mld. Moreover an additional clear water sump of 5 lakh litres capacity and a pump house had been constructed.

iv) Service Reservoirs:

The High level zone had been divided into two zones namely high level zone I and high level Zone II. The high level zone I was served by the existing 2 Nos. of Service Reservoirs. The newly constructed RCC Service Reservoir 8,00,000 litres capacity at Maravankudiyiruppu was utilized to serve high level Zone II.

v) Distribution System:

Under improvements scheme, distribution pipes had been laid for a length of 35.90 km and hence the total length of distribution system was 131.9 km. The distribution system consists of CI, AC and PVC pipes of suitable sizes varying from 90 mm to 300 mm. There were 644 Nos. of public fountains.

Works Carried Out Under Deposit Scheme:

i) Pump House and Pump Sets:

One additional pump house had been constructed at Krishnankoil near the existing Masonry GLSR cum sump to house the 60 HP pump set to pump water to high level Zone I Service Reservoir. The duty of the pump set was 3750 lpm against a total head of 45m.

ii) Pumping Main:

An additional 350 mm CI LA Class pumping main had been laid for a length of 1606 m to pump water to the high level zone I Service Reservoir from the sump.

iii) Service Reservoir:

The 8.0 lakhs litres capacity steel tank available at high level Zone I had been replaced by RCC elevated Service Reservoir of 8.00 lakhs litres capacity.

Bore Well Schemes:

a) Five numbers of bore wells had been drilled in Melasoorankudi area during 1987-88.Water from the five bore wells was pumped to a common sump by means of submersible pump sets. The water from the common sump was pumped to the Service Reservoir at Maravankudiyiruppu (HL Zone II).

b) Apart from the above, five additional bore wells had been drilled in Punnainagar area.

c) In addition to the above 27 open wells and 361 hand pumps available which yields non potable water.

Second Water Supply Improvement Scheme To Nagercoil Municipality:

The improvement (1st improvement) to the existing water supply scheme was designed in the year 1974 for an ultimate population of 1,50,000 for the year 1991.But the population of the Municipality had increased to 1, 71,648 in the year 1981 itself and the population as per 1991 census was reported as 1,89,642.Hence the existing water supply scheme was inadequate and severe scarcity occurred for drinking water in Nagercoil Municipality as well as in Kanyakumari Township and Suchindram Town Panchayats.

Hence the Nagercoil Municipality requested the TWAD Board in Lr.No.15605/E2/82 dated 05.07.1982 to take up investigation for improving the water supply position.

The II Water Supply improvement scheme for Nagercoil Municipality was sanctioned for Rs.1706.00 lakhs in G.O.Ms.No.61 dated 08.03.1996.

The improvement scheme was designed for an ultimate population of 4,00,000 for the year 2021 at the prorate supply of 90 lpcd for daily supply of 30.50MLD and the scheme had been executed and commissioned during 2002 by TWAD Board.

The Second water supply improvement scheme was formulated for the intermediate and ultimate population as below.

S.No Description Present (1991) Intermediate (2006) Ultimate (2021)
1 Nagercoil Municipality 189482 290000 400000
2 Kanyakumari T.P. 17706 22500 + 3500 29000 + 5000
3 Suchindram T.P. 15457 23000 32000
  Total 222145 335000 + 3500 461000 + 5000

The second improvement water supply scheme for Nagercoil Municipality was formulated for the Intermediate (2006) requirement of 200 mcft / 15.50 MLD and Ultimate requirement of 326 mcft / 25.29 MLD (2021) with Ananthanar Channel as source. Due to the failure of south west monsoons during 2003 there was no sufficient storage of water in Pechiparai Dam and Mukkadal Dam and water scarcity problem prevailed in Nagercoil Municipality.

Need For New Water Supply Improvement Scheme:

At present the level of supply of water to Nagercoil Municipality is 85 lpcd and supply once in five days. UGS Scheme has been sanctioned for Nagercoil Municipality and is under progress. Therefore prorate level of water supply has to be increased from 90 lpcd to 135 lpcd.

In the District Collectors conference on 17.12.2012, the Honorable Chief Minister of Tamilnadu had announced to provide water supply improvement scheme to Nagercoil Municipality with Kuzhithuraiyar River as source vide announcement No. 35. The Nagercoil Municipality had decided to implement WSIS through two Packages. Package I comprises of creation of sources and conveying water up to the Service Reservoir. Package II comprises improvement of infrastructure, Distribution system and house service connections with in Town limit vide resolution No 41 dt. 03.02.2011. The council had passed resolution to carry out investigation works for Package I through TWAD BOARD and for Package II through independent Consultants. Further the Nagercoil Municipality has allotted land for constructions of treatment plant for above WSIS at Puliyadi vide resolution No.1794 dt. 20.12.2012. The Commissioner of Municipal Administration vide Lr. No. 32813 / 2012 / WS2 /dt 22.01.2013 had given permission to the Municipal Commissioner, Nagercoil Municipality to take up the investigation work for the above WSIS through TWAD Board. The Managing Director, TWAD Board had given permission to take up the investigation works vide Lr.No.F.241111 / AE8 / PM / 2013-1 / dt.13.02.2013

Source Considered:

It was decided to locate the source in River Kuzhithuraiyar by the local administration and the same has been announced by the Honorable Chief Minister during the Collector's conference held at Chennai on 17.12.2012. The only perennial water source available in Kanyakumari District is River Kuzhithuriyar. In summer month (February to May) the flow in the River Kuzhithuraiyar is less, the required raw water 58.47 MLD cannot be tapped.

The Pechiparai dam was constructed against River Kothaiyar and Perunchani dam was constructed against River Paraliyar. The water released from Perunchani Dam and Pechiparai Dam (partly) collected in Puthen diversion Dam which is located 1 Km downstream of Perunchani Dam and then left for irrigation.

The Puthen diversion Dam has enough water throughout the year except summer months (February to May). During summer months a quantity of 41.12 MLD to 52.04 MLD has to be released from the Pechiparai or Perunchani to meet out the need of the Nagercoil Municipality water supply requirement.

Deputy Hydro geologist, TWAD Board, T–K Circle, Tirunelveli had selected upstream of Puthen Dam as source for the Nagercoil WSIS and given report on 11.05.2013. Since there is no enough sand depth in the river Paraliyar, off take arrangements may be provided to tap the raw water from the Upstream of Puthen Dam.

Population And Requirement Of This Proposal:

The population of the Municipality as per 2011 census is 2,08,149. The population as per 2011 census after merger of 4 nearby village panchayat (1.Kariamanickapuram, 2.Gandhipuram, 3.North Soorankudy, 4.Peruvilai) and one Town Panchayat (Asaripallam) is 246753.The population forecast has been approved for Nagercoil Municipality WSIS vide the Chief Engineer / TWAD / Madurai Lr.No 8835 / F. Ngl Mpty WSIS / AE3(D) / 2015 / dt. 07.08.2015 based on “Semi log” method

Base year 2017 = 280000

Intermediate 2032 = 320000

Ultimate 2047 = 390000

or the raw water quantity from Puthen dam, a new full scale water treatment plant 41.12 MLD at intermediate stage is proposed with tube settlers and Dual Media Filters using Anthracite coal in the demolished location of existing WTP I & II at Krishnankoil. It is proposed to construct the infrastructures such as Aerator, Raw water channel, Flash mixers, Dividing chamber and up to Clariflocculator for a capacity of 41.12 mld. The filter house with dual media is proposed to construct for a capacity of 29.57 mld. The balance quantity of 11.55 mld is proposed to be conveyed to the existing WTP III through a separate channel.

The existing WTP III is proposed to enhance for 18.00 mld. The existing WTP III components such as aerator, stilling chamber, raw water channel, Dividing chamber and Flash mixer have withstand up to 6.50 MLD capacity only. But rapid sand filter bed have been proposed for enhancement by providing Dual Media Filters using Anthracite coal for 18.00 mld.

After completion of the new WSIS, the present drawal from the Ananthanar Channel has to be disconnected based on the instruction of the district administration.

6.45 MLD raw water from Mukkadal dam will be fed into the existing aerator of WTP III and the remaining 11.55 MLD water fed through a separate channel from the newly proposed clariflocculators to the existing filter bed of WTP III.The total quantity 6.45 + 11.55 =18.00 MLD will be treated with augmented existing WTP III on completion of the improvement scheme.

Clear water sump capacity of 19.70 LL for one hour detention time is proposed for total intermediate clear water requirement of 45.30 mld including transmission loss.

H) Service Reservoirs:

The clear water conveyed from the WTP at Krishnankoil will be stored in the newly proposed elevated Service reservoirs -11 Nos., existing elevated Service reservoirs -11 Nos. and GLSR– 1 No. for the entire Nagercoil Municipality.
