YEP period 2014 - 2016, batch 2

Position after YEP

GeoICT Specialist Water at Royal HaskoningDHV the Netherlands

YEP Role

Project manager assistant where we collaborated with the local water company in order to monitor the drinking water system with the use of a SCADA system. The monitoring will help to optimize the pump operation of the deep tube wells (DTW) in relation to the water demand and eventually reduce the NRW in Dhaka. For this analysis we need to find the quantitative supply of water (mainly deep tube wells) and the use of water. I  assisted the local water company with the use of the SCADA system in the office and in the field.
