Abstract :

In Bauchi metropolis water reticulation, water is pumped from a treatment plant at Gubi to two overhead reservoirs at Warinji and then distributed to the network. The network analysed comprises of flow from the reservoirs to major pipes that pass through the city and this includes 97 pipes of different sizes connected at 72 nodes. The current (2015) and future (2035) water demands were estimated to be 42,856 and 63,214 m3/day respectively. Presently, most parts of Bauchi receive water for only 4 hours per day and therefore, 4 hours of extended period simulation was conducted using EPANET 2.0. Similarly, future design was proposed in which 12 hours of water supply was analysed. Results of proposed design indicate that 68 nodes, out of the 78 will have pressure head above 25 m which satisfies many standards and is a good step towards achieving the ultimate goal of 24 hours water supply.
