Odisha (gw) meeting-07-05-2014

  1. 1. HYDROLOGY PROJECT-II (ODISHA-GW) (IBRD Loan No.4749-IN) DIRECTORATE OF GROUND WATER SURVEY & INVESTIGATION: ODISHA (DEPARTMENT OF WATER RESOURCES GOVT. OF ODISHA) Status Report Er SK Mahapatra Executive Engineer
  2. 2. Implementing Agency: ODISHA -GW (Directorate of GWS&I) Website Address : www.odishahydrologyproject.org Donor Agency World Bank (IBRD Loan No.4749-IN) Financial Target & Achievements • Allocation under the Project as per PIP (Rs. Crores) - 11.2341 • Project cost as per RCT-2013 (Rs. Crores) - 09.2159 • Expenditure up to March 2014 (Rs. Crores) - 01.2338 / 08.6903 • Likely expenditure by May 31, 2014 (Rs.

  3. 3. Component-I (Institutional Strengthening) Up-gradation of Piezometers (renovation and new) - 198 Telemetry System Installation - 028 Awareness Programme & Workshop - 116 Vehicles (New) - 005 Component-II (Vertical Extension) II B DSS (P): Jointly implemented by Odisha-GW and Odisha-SW. Two Pilot Areas : Drought Monitoring and Management (DMM) in Upper Tel Basin and Conjunctive Use (CU) in Mahanadi Basin Available GIS and time series data have been imported to the DSS Database & Software Customization has been completed. Various model applications have been performed IIC Two PDS Projects: Implemented by Odisha -GW Delineation of fresh water zone in sand dune pockets of Puri Town (Tatabanya Area) identified on pilot basis for which State Govt. will be advised for planned pumpage of GW and facilitating artificial recharge in the identified area. Water logged and salt affected areas in Kantapada Block (Cuttack District) and Ersama Block (Jagatsinghpur District) have been mapped. on pilot basis, for which State Govt. will be advised for taking up land reclamation by drainage development and management to promote agricultural activities. 4. Component-wise Physical Progress
  4. 4. 5. Major Physical Achievement • Observation network strengthened • Telemetry systems installed at 28 locations for real-time monitoring • Office building, data centers along with IT hardware, software upgraded • Adequate capacity building made through training / workshop / study tour. • Customization of DSS (P) Software completed for Mahanadi Basin. • Two PDS Projects implemented in the State. a) Application of Remote Sensing Technique for mapping water logged and salt affected area in the coastal tract of Odisha [Cost Rs. 83 Lakhs] b) Planning for optimum development of ground water in sand dune pockets [Cost Rs. 105 Lakhs]
  5. 5. 6. Post Project Plan for continuation of HP-II Activities • The State Govt. will be moved to allocate adequate funds to support for continuance of some of the HP-II activities. • The State Govt. has been requested to place required man power to make HP-II activities sustainable. • Continuance of capacity building of the available manpower will be further ensured through need-based trainings. • Additional telemetry systems will be installed for strengthening real-time monitoring of ground water level. • HIS data dissemination to the indenters will be made faster and simpler.
  6. 6. 7. Lesson Learnt • Implementation of HP-II has facilitated development of the infrastructures; introduction of automated monitoring system, R&D studies etc. in the State. • HP-II has been implemented in the State as a typical Govt. Project instead of purely on a project mode basis. • Management issues like, not having a full time and empowered project coordinator, frequent change of nodal officer or decision makers and above all inadequacy of manpower for exclusive involvement with the project work has resulted in slow progress, non-achievement of certain objectives, scale-down of initial project cost etc. • Delay in deployment of technical and management Consultants, adhering to multiple financial and procurement procedures (such as guidelines of WB / DoWR/ MoWR, etc., instead of a single procedure have lead to delay in various procurements and field executions. • System of reporting to multiple authorities and too many reviews at different levels (such as DoWR / MoWR / WB etc.) has been rather counter-effective for the project implementation.
  7. 7. Odisha-GW has been disseminating HIS data to the various hydrological data users on receipt of indent. Steps are being taken to make data dissemination mechanism simpler and single window system. HIS Database is being used under different Schemes for water supply and management.. Propagation of Importance of HIS will be continued through mass awareness activities in post-project scenario for different water users in the State both in private and public domains. 8. Dissemination and application of HIS
  8. 8. Thank You
