Indian state to use 3D GIS map of pipelines to pinpoint leaks

India: The Kerala Water Authority (KWA) is vetting a proposal to prepare a three-dimensional Geographical Information System (GIS)-aided map of the pipelines in the city’s distribution system. The 3D-GIS maps would help the KWA to get a correct picture of the distribution lines that crisscross the city and also help in tracing any defect, leakage or any other disorder in water and sewage lines.

The proposal comes in the wake of a recent study by the Non-Revenue Water Management unit, Kochi, which revealed that only about 50 per cent of the total production of drinking water at the Aluva water treatment plant of the KWA reached the public.
