This Plant it is commissioned in two steps or stages. First stage it commissioned in year 1969 (By Candifilters) & second it is commissioned in year 1972(By Hindustan Cons. Compony). Both stages are functionally identical the only difference is in their water purification capacity. The first stage is having water purification capacity of 48 MGD i.e. 217.92 MLD. Second Stage it is having water purification capacity of 70 MGD i.e. 317.8 MLD. The total capacity of Parvati W.W. is 118 MGD i.e. 535.72 MLD. These plant run completely under gravity.
Sources- Khadakvasla Dam is our Direct Source of raw water. Khadkvasla Dam in turn may receive water from Panshet dam, Warasgaon Dam, or from Temghar Dam. So we may say that these three Dams act as an indirect Sources of Raw Water.
Khadkwasla Dam: Khadakwasla is a moderate sized dam on the Mutha river, located about 20 kilometers southwest of the city of Pune, and named after the nearby village of Khadakwasla. This dam is one of the main sources of water for the city of Pune. Just a few kilometers up the road from the dam lies the Sinhagad Fort and the twin dams of Panshet and Varasgaon which mainly supply water for irrigation. In 1961, the Khadakwasla Dam had to be blown, as the Panshet Dam overflowed, causing devastating floods in the city of Pune.
The dam was later rebuilt... There are three outlets for Khadkvasla Dam first one is Mutha right canal, second is baby canal now instead of baby canal we have a close MS pipe line measuring 10 ft, or 3.03 m in diameter.The third outlet opens into the river.
