Service DomainsWEES Engineering Solutions Private Limited will primarily focus on the sustainable development and management of water resources and society, but not limited to:
Water Sustainability Program
Our focus is to provide sustainable solution for water resources development under changing environments by combining science & technology with the traditional practices.
In recent years or from the last decades, the frequency of water related disasters in India have significantly increased. More specifically, frequencies of floods and droughts, which are generally treated as natural phenomena, have increased. However, drought, i.e., water scarcity, always leaves its footprint for a longer period and its impact on the socio-economics has wide spatial coverage from a small region to a province. With our exposure of working in various states and regions, we provide sustainable solutions to these problems through:
- Diagnosis of the problem
- Study of traditional practices of water resources management
- Soil & water conservation practices
- Catchment area treatment
- Planning and design of micro/small/medium/major irrigation or water resources projects
- Diagnosis and evaluation of existing water resources projects to investigate water use efficiency and their productivity followed by recommendations and cost estimates for the provisions to improve system efficiency
- Optimal crop planning considering the various resources
- Command area development and conjunctive use planning
- Monitoring and evaluation of water resources projects
- Integrated water resources planning and management
- Inter-linking of streams or rivers for effective utilization of surplus water in a particular catchment
- Use of flood water for subsequent seasons
- Project monitoring, reporting and recommendations; etc.

- Prefeasibility and feasibility studies and development of Detailed Projects Reports (DPR) including designs & drawings and financial estimates etc.
Evaluation of irrigation projects
water is limited and agricultural irrigation consumes the majority of freshwater resources, it is critical that irrigation systems are planned and managed optimally. A small percentage saving in irrigation can go a long way in alleviating water shortages in other sectors, such as domestic and industrial. Further, irrigation systems that are already in place need to be evaluated for their performance. Such evaluation can offer insights for system improvement and improved planning of future systems. Under such investigations, evaluations are carried out for four domains:
- System Delivery performance and efficiency
- Production performance and efficiency
- Financial performance
- Environmental performance.
Flood Forecasting and Disaster Management
Flood forecasting is the use of forecasted precipitation and streamflow data in rainfall-runoff and streamflow routing models to forecast flow rates and water levels for periods ranging from a few hours to days ahead, depending on the size of the watershed or river basin. Flood forecasting can also make use of forecasts of precipitation in an attempt to extend the lead-time available.
Flood forecasting is an important component of flood warning, where the distinction between the two is that the outcome of flood forecasting is a set of forecast time-profiles of channel flows or river levels at various locations, while "flood warning" is the task of making use of these forecasts to tell and communicate the decisions on warnings of floods. For flood forecasting and early warning system, and flood mitigation we offer:
- Development of Flood Forecasting and Early Warning System: Catchment hydrology, selection of site for telemetric system in the catchment, modelling catchment hydrology, modelling river hydraulics, customization of models and data acquisitions system including retrieval and processing for their use in creating forecasts; dissemination of warnings through web, mobile and other media.
- Flood mitigation plans
- Engineering measures for flood mitigation and river training
- Designs and drawings
- Development of emergency action plan for floods and droughts etc.
Urban Hydrology and Drainage Designs & Smart City Development
Urbanization is essentially characterized development of habitats and associated infrastructure facilities required for economic and social activities necessary for livelihood of growing population in the area concerned. Thus, urbanization brings changes in land use with construction of buildings, roads, parks and other facilities, and increases supply of water for consumptive use and release of wastewater. The natural hydrological processes that prevail in the area are therefore seriously affected due to urbanization. The land use change further generates excessive runoff during Monsoon rainfall in shorter travel time period, which cause failure of urban drainage system and thereby the urban flooding. Beside this, population growth in colonized area has increased the water consumption and therefore the wastewater in proportionality. However, in most of the developing and under developed countries, the stormwater drainage system and wastewater drainage system are generally combined which makes concerned to the water quality issues in the connecting rivers or adjoining natural drainage system.
