Breaches in SRLIP bund; works come under scanner 14.9.2019
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 ...
