Sufficient water of appropriate quality and quantity has been one of the most important issues in human history. People began to transport water from other locations to their communities. A water supply system consists of infrastructure that collects, treats, stores and distributes water between water sources and consumers. This project concerns the design of urban and rural water distribution system in Coimbatore and Tiruppur districts. Sedimentation, aeration, filtration, chlorination of raw water is the main treatment in the collection of raw water from Pillur reservoir through Headworks. Clear water pumping main and distribution of treated water to the public is ensured.
