11 2) All raw water sources do present some form of treatment problem 2) All raw water sources do present some form of treatment problem. The extent of treatment problem or pollution varies from source to source.3) Most water supply dam function as regulating dam i.e. Releases are made during draught to augment flow in river.
12 OPERATION OF REGULATING DAM SECTION 2OPERATION OF REGULATING DAM
13 Operation of regulating dam OPERATION PROTOCOLDEFINITION – Regulating dam: constructed to store water during wet spell and dam release during drought to augment low river flow.Flow to river at periodicalslow river flowControlled release(from impounded reservoir)Ensure adequate river levelAugment flow in the river at Intake
15 B)ACQUISITION OF DATA & THEIR APPLICATION I) At Dama) Catchment AreaUpstream of damFor impounded reservoir volume estimation.b) Rainfall- In catchment of dam (daily).For estimation of possible increase in volume of impounded water.c) Characteristic of Impounded water- Frequent initially.- Thereafter bimonthly or monthly.For planning the treatment of water released at different levels of the impounded reservoir. Monitoring the water quality by conducting limnological survey.d) Dam Level (daily)For trending the decrease or increase in dam level and volume. Documenting the acquired data will indicate a cut back or increase in production.e) Record of quantity of release at varying times (when required).This information coupled with base flow in river will enable the likely water quantity at the abstraction point to be predicted.
16 II) At Intake (a) Water level in river (i) Under normal flow condition (recording at 12 or 24 hourlywill suffice).ii) During drought recording oflevel at close interval isnecessary. 6 to 8 hours is likelythe frequency.For base flow volume and recessionconstant estimation.For river level monitoring, the installation of an automatic level recorder is ideal.(b) RainfallIn catchment of tributaries.For estimation of flow volume from tributaries into main riverIn relation to forecast of dam releases(c) Other users likely are the following:-- Compensation water.- Irrigation.- Water treatment plant upstream.To note water quantity requirement for estimation of required volume at intake in relation to available volume.

24 CRITICAL VOLUMEActive volume available in dam when the volume of dam release has to be regulated or controlled (restricted) to tie over an impending dry period.Water rationing may have to be implemented during controlled dam release period.
25 Active volume Total Volume = Active Volume + Dead Volume Active volume = Total Volume – Dead VolumeDead volume is defined as the volume of water below the lowest outlet or drawoff level.

33 FORMULATION OF CONTIGENCY PLAN SECTION 4FORMULATION OF CONTIGENCY PLAN
34 FORMULATION OF CONTIGENCY PLAN Contingency plan can be formulated in advance for any active volume in dam and dam level.Criteria involved in a plan formulation are as follows:Volume of dam releaseA range of volume – Values based on past record related to river flow quantity and current based condition.Sustaining period selected– related to weather condition and active volume available.In contingency plan formulation rainfall is not taken into consideration. Any rainfall occurs during the planned period is considered a bonus.
35 Example of Formation of Contingency Plan a) Status of available vol. in dam as on 5/7/2002:-Dam level = 53.32MTot.

37 Effect of reservoir storage on water quality SECTION 5Effect of reservoir storage on water quality
38 WATER QUALITY IN DEEP RESERVOIRS IntroductionSeasonal density or thermal stratification varies for shallow (less than 6M) and deep (greater than 6M) lakes and reservoirs.In shallow reservoirs, water temperatures and oxygen concentrations will depend on the amount of wind induced mixing.At surface, water temperatures rise in relation to bottom waters, stratified density layers will form in the water column.An oxygen defiency will result at the sediment – water interface, creating anaerobic conditions that will solubilize nutrients and metals from bottom sediments.Deep water bodies experience thermal stratification and form three distinct layers of water below the surface.Top layer is called epilimnion.Bottom layer is called hypolimnion.The layer between is called metalimnion (thermocline).
39 WATER QUALITY IN DEEP RESERVOIRS Thermocline:Intermediate/boundary layer that has sharp change in both temperature and densityEpilimnion: Upper layer of well-mixed warm waterEpliminion (warm, aerobic, well-mixed)30oC28.5oCThermal StratificationThermocline (sharp change in both temperature & water density)Hypolimnion (cool, anaerobic, poorly mixed)LakeHypolimnion: Lower layer, poorly mixed cool water. Low DO and anaerobic.
40 CASE STUDIES 1)Demonstration by color intensity-Malut Dam Raw Water at Varying Depth
42 LIMNOLOGICAL SURVEY OF IMPOUNDED WATER SECTION 6LIMNOLOGICAL SURVEY OF IMPOUNDED WATER
43 OBJECTIVETo determine the raw water quality at varying depth in the impoundment or damFor a dam, the survey is conducted at varying depth in the Epilimnion, the Thermocline at the Hypolimnion.Knowing the water quality will facilitate treatment of the impounded water.
44 PARAMETERS TO RECORD SAMPLING POINT At surface and at each drawoff point for a dam provided with a variable drawoff tower.PARAMETERS TO RECORDpHColourTurbidityIron (Soluble and Insoluble Form)Manganese (Soluble and Insoluble Form)Dissolved oxygenAlkalinityHydrogen Sulphide
45 SAMPLING FREQUENCY Weekly initially, thereafter bimonthly and monthly. The frequency is dictated by water level or volume of water in the impoundment.
46 TREATMENT PROBLEMSoluble manganese and iron are the common treatment problem encounters.Aeration of the dam normally overcames this problem.

51 TREATMENT CHANGING FORM OF METAL Aeration Use of Chemicals Source – Dam (Jetting, Mechanical pumping, Injection)Treatment Plant – Aerator (Cascading/Trickling Aerator)Oxidants: Potassium permanganate, chlorine, ozone, chlorine dioxide.Most favored!
52 THEORY Metals (general) SourceNatural (a)Found in most natural waters- dissolution of rocks and minerals.(b)The hypolimnion of dam- the dark, cold and anaerobic.Man-madeIndustrial discharge.TypeIron (Fe), Manganese (Mn).FormSoluble and insoluble (particulate)Total (Fe) or (Mn) = Soluble + Insoluble FormAnalyticalAnalysisTotal Metal (Fe or Mn) Acidify Sample and BoilSoluble Metal (Fe or Mn) - Filter sample through a 0.45 Ωm filterpaper.
53 THEORY Metals (general) RemovalInsoluble Formby coagulation and flocculation and filtrationSoluble FormBy first converting from soluble to insoluble followed by coagulation and flocculation and filtrationThus, it is easier to remove in the insoluble form than in the soluble form.In general, both iron and manganese invariably occur in both the insoluble and soluble form.
54 TREATMENT Conversion of Form Oxidation Process (1) Aeration (Physical Means)(2) Use of Chemical(Chemical Means)
55 TREATMENT (1) Aeration (Physical Means) The function of aeration To introduce oxygen to the water.To remove carbon dioxide (resulting in increase ofpH).Removal of iron and manganese is pH dependent,more so with manganese.Nature’s Way
