Authors(2) :-K. Vidya, M. Ramachandran

Water-Decision Support System (DSS) tools encourage the participation towards improved water supply in a given region. The complexity in the manual design of conventional water treatment plants can be eliminated using softwares. Current paper work pivots on the improvement for the design of treatment plant in Musiri town, Trichy district of India through the Water DSS. Population in the year of 2045 is forecasted using the census by Incremental Increase Method. The manual reckoning for water demand and dimensions of processing units was carried out. Coding is written in C-language for easy design. Development of Decision Support tool for the design and selection process of drinking water treatment plant is carried out using C-Programming technique. The results obtained by the manual calculation and C-Programming were compared. The process by designed tool is intelligible and gives an accurate, effortless output which is versatile for any region demanding similar conventional treatment plant.
