Stormwater management means to manage surface runoff. Stormwater management can reduce the runoff of rainwater. It includes controlling flooding and reducing erosion to improve water quality. This Strategy used in our Nasik city (Untwadi Road Signal) to prevent the impacts of Stormwater. We know that, in rainy season the water is flow over the ground surface. This rainwater does not have any suspended solid, it collects in drainage which flow by the force of gravity and then it discharges near lake or river. Urbanization reduces the infiltration rate of lands it causes of the flooding it occurs scouring and waterlogging problem. So, it is necessary to identify area of problem and suggest BMPs (Best Management Practices) techniques.
Due to urbanization of city the infiltration of land is reduce; it results in the low infiltration of rain water in the ground. The stormwater runoff occurs when the rain falls over the infiltration land such as roadway, walk way, parking lots, rooftop and other surface that prevent the infiltration of stormwater. This runoff volume increase and flooding problems are generated in city [1,2]. The runoff is exited in the drain in near lake and river. The sedimentation, nitrogen, bacteria, phosphorus, oil, grease, trash, pesticides, metal and other matter present in the environment also pollute the stormwater in urban areas is more in sewer line to meet the sewage water its more pollute, after drains in lake or river the other industrial wastewater pollutes the stormwater. The Stormwater management practice is used to prevent the pollution and to store in tanks is the science of stormwater runoff management. To avoid adverse impacts on the environment [3,4]. The main goal is to manage water quantity and analysis of problems associated with of stormwater impact, and give analytical solution to it.
The study has been focused on the small area in Nashik: untwadi road. It is located near the bank of Nasardi River having latitude 19.9906°N and longitude 73.7621°E. It is one of the congested areas in Nashik where problem of water logging occurs frequently. Due to this there is major loss of property and deterioration of road, which affect the economy of the city. The existing stormwater drains in this area are constructed many years ago and the size of drains is small this cause increase in the volume of runoff water Figures 4,5.
This is the list of industries near Nasardi river: -
After the existing survey of study area, we identify the problem of stormwater. We identified that the Nasadi river is polluted a lot because of sewage coming from the sources due to which it reduces the capacity of river. Therefore, we came to a solution that it is mandatory to provide Effluent Treatment Plant at each at every industry through which the sewage is being discharged When we observe the area we saw that there the stormwater line is not installed so the second solution we can give is to install a stormwater drainage line which starts from Sambhaji Chowk as it have low topography and then it discharge it into the Nasadi River Figures 6,7.
We have great pleasure in presenting project report on “Stormwater Management: A Case Study of Nasik City (Untwadi Road Signal) “It gives us immense pleasure to express a deep sense of gratitude to guide Prof. M. B. Patil for his valuable suggestions, guidance and motivation during entire Project work. With deep sense of gratitude, we thank to our principal Dr. S. R. Devane and management of the MVPS’s KBTCOE, NASHIK for providing all necessary facilities and their constant encouragement. We thankful to all faculty members of the civil department for their support, help and guidance and also for their esteemed suggestion. We also like to thank my colleagues for their contribution in making a successful completion of project work.
