Bisalpur Water Project  

Bisalpur Water Supply

The Bisalpur-Jaipur Water Supply Project (BWSP) has been designed to deliver water from the existing Bisalpur Dam headworks up to Balawala on the south edge of Jaipur City to reduce the city's dependence on its ground water resources, and includes complementary provisions for supplying water to other areas. The conceptual planning for the BWSP is to utilize the Bisalpur Dam water in a phased manner in order to meet the ever increasing water demands of Jaipur City and reduce the groundwater abstraction to sustainable limits. Phase I of the BWSP with water treatment plant (WTP) designed to supply a total of 400 MLD with a provision of 360 MLD for Jaipur city and 40 MLD for rural area.

The works have been planned and designed for 600 MLD in such a manner so as to facilitate a Phase II expansion program which is to be taken up in the future to provide a total of 540 MLD of treated water to Jaipur City plus 60 MLD to the rural areas and also to facilitate construction of the Stage II of the Project to achieve a total capacity of 1020 mld clear water production.
