How to address this issue while designing a water distribution network when there is an elevation difference between of 20 to 30 m? People residing at the lower elevation receive water with more discharge through their house service connection. But people residing at higher elevation receive very low discharge. How to tackle with this to provide uniform supply of water.? kindly guideme...
