LAKE CITY …….. situated in southern Rajasthan is one of the
Beautiful place’s in India
UDAIPUR from years is known for its beautiful lake ,forts and has been a major tourist spot …….
The Lake is situated in the north of Udaipur city, as apart
of the western lake frontage. The lake was constructed in
the year 1678A.D. and then renovated in 1889A.D. by
Maharana Fateh Singh. The dam of this reservoir is
720m in length and about 100m in breadth. The lake has
a catchment area of 53.66km.The greatest depth of the
Lake lies near the middle of the dam i.e. 13.4 m. The
total spread is 4.0 sq. kms.
A Banjara chieftain initially constructed the lake in the
14th century. Rana Udai Singh further raised its
embankment in 1560 A.D. The water spread of the lake
is 6.96 kms. And has a maximum depth of 10.5 m
towards the west where the Kotra River drains into the
lake. The lake forms the main source of drinking water
for the city. The river Sisarma, a tributary of the Kotra is
the chief source of water to the lake

We visitedDoodh Talai plant
In this step chlorine gas and alum are added in certain amount of ppm depending on tubidity of water.
Water flowing from inside to outside tank
After first step treatment water is collected in the centre tank and allow to stand. So that the flux formed is seperated. Then this water is pumped from bottom to top in outer tank, known as sedimentation tank. These tanks are 20 ft deep.
Water from the sedimentation tank is passed into these two filter bed. In these bed the water is passed through the bed of sand and gravels.
By the end of these processes the water is free from macroscopic pollutants.
This water is transferred to a storage tank where chlorine gas is passed through it in optimum amount.
This collected water is pumped to different parts of the city.
