Optimum Dosage of Chlorine for Jabalpur City, EPANET


The purpose of this study is to determine free residual chlorine in water distribution system of Jabalpur city using EPANET software. The hydraulic data provided by the Jabalpur Municipal Corporation is used in the present work. The chloroscope is used for finding out the on-site free residual chlorine in the system. Total 540 observed readings are taken on-field using chloroscope. The chlorine decay coefficients are found by comparing the observed readings with predicted values from EPANET by trial and error method. This type of study is useful in understanding the movement of foreign particles in the water distribution system, to optimise the chlorine dosage at the water treatment plant and water storing facilities, to maintain limiting 0.2 mg/L of residual chlorine throughout the system.
