Rains in the recent past have brought the Shimsha river back to life. There has never been an ample flow of water to the river in the last 12 years, but this time it's been a different story. The development comes as a shot in the arm for farmers in the region. The Shimsha river, which takes birth in Devarayanadurga Hill in Kunigal taluk of Tumakuru district, flows up to a length of 282 km. The river enters Maddur taluk from Kunigal taluk and joins River Cauvery at Muttathi. River Shimsha has received 1,500 cusecs of water, following heavy showers in Kunigal taluk.

Kurnool: Too much water raises concern 16.10.2017
Kurnool: The copious rains brought respite to the drought-hit Rayalaseema region. But the abundant water that has flown on to the fields, from the tanks, canals and rivulets could not be harnessed to the fullest extent. This is the main refrain of farmers and agriculture labourers in Kadapa district. The YSR Congress party agriculture task force president M.V. Nagi Reddy said that there is an urgent need to take up minor irrigation tank repairs, check dam construction, clearing of tank feeders including drains and links, excavation of farm ponds, desilting of drains and canals. Development of cascades was widely believed to be able to bring good dividends to the farmers. It is pertinent to mention that Irrigation Minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao has said that over 41,000 minor irrigation and panchayat raj tanks will be de-silted and developed to save every drop of rain water and recharge the groundwater in the next four months under "Neeru Chettu" programme launched on February 19.

Chirravati River overflowing in Anantapur 11.10.2017
Anantapur: The Chirravati River started over flowing in Puttaparthi and Gorantla areas in Anantapur district after a decade long gap. The River had almost dried up for a long period with a number of check dams erected including Paragodu reservoir in Bagepalli taluk in Karnataka. With heavy rains lashing the upstream areas of Chikaballapur district in Karnataka, the Paragodu reservoir was over flowing that resulted in inflows towards the district from the border. Chitravathi river that passes through International Spiritual Centre Puttaparthi has been in spate due to the constant inflows from neighbouring state. Heavy flows reached the tank Bukkapatnam, the biggest tank in Anantapur district. Collector G. Veerapandian visited the river bed and alerted officials over possible inundation of low lying areas. Puttparthi MLA Palle Raghunath Reddy expressed gratitude to the rain god for the overflowing of the river after a long gap.
