Khammam: The flooded  Godavari in Bhadradri district exposed the lack of quality of the bund works of the Sitarama Lift Irrigation Project (SRLIP). Breaches were caused to the bund and floodwater flowed into the main canal, overflowing the main aqueduct. The aqueduct was built across the Bandiregulavagu and is located between the two villages of Amerda and Ammagaripalli, under Aswapuram mandal. An earthen bund was also constructed on both sides of the aqueduct canal so that water reach does not flood the villages. The Godavari floodwater and the rivulet caused an overflow. At one stage, the floodwater overflowed the aqueduct and the same water joined in the main canal. The main canal became another mini-Godavari. The earthen bunds built to support the aqueduct were unable to withstand the force of a massive quantity of water and there were breaches at two places. The officials completed the repairs immediately. The incident raised doubts about the quality of the earthen works of the SRLIP. The ...

Alarm bells over bid to build mini dam near Ooty 2.8.2019
OOTY: Defying of Hill Stations Buildings Rules (HSBR) has gone to such an extent that the realtors have begun to build a mini dam across a natural stream in a tea garden at Devarsholai area near here.   While the realtors there are making efforts to convert a large tea garden into a real estate hub, the greens charged that mini dam construction would have not commenced without the blessings of the concerned officials.

Stop 22 check dams construction across river Palar by AP govt: MK Stalin 25.7.2019
Chennai: DMK president MK Stalin has demanded the Tamil Nadu government to take steps towards preventing construction of 22 check dams across river Palar by Andhra Pradesh government.  In a statement on Wednesday Stalin has urged Chief Minister Edapadi K Palanisami to prevent construction of check dams across river Palar since people in Vellore, Tiruvannamalai, Kancheepuram, Tiruvallur and Chennai would face severe water crisis. Stalin pointed out even as state has been losing its rights over rivers under the AIADMK government, the AP government has proposed to set up 22 check dams at the  height of 40 ft each on Palar. Stalin condemned the AIADMK government for merely watching the AP government do it. He said this would affect the water resources in the five districts and people would face severe water crisis. In the past, the DMK opposed the AP government move to set up check dams with a height up to 20 ft. However, the AP government has decided to set up 22 bigger and taller check dams on ...
