Doubtful impact of cloud seeding 17.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The state cabinet has approved the cloud seeding project in three river basins — Cauvery, Malaprabha and Tungabhadra. The deficient rainfall during the ongoing monsoon period in the state and the acute drought conditions during the third consecutive year have forced the state government to resort to weather modification to enhance the precipitation with the hope of bringing some water to parched land. This project with an estimated cost of Rs 30 crore is supposed to be implemented within 60 days by private firm Hosysala Projects Ltd. Will this improve the condition of the farmers through additional rainfall and increase the water flow in these river basins to aid irrigation dams? Though the government has approved this only after getting expert opinion form the Indian Institute of Science and the State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre, history of three decades of cloud seeding in the state should have been considered before final decision was taken. In 2002, the then S M Krishna government ...

BSY released Almatti water to Jindal, says M B Patil 6.7.2017 deccanherald.com
Water Resources Minister MBPatil on Thursday accused BJPstate president BS Yeddyurappa of giving consent to the release of five tmcft of water annually to Jindal factory during his tenure as chief minister.

Addressing reporters in Bengaluru, Patil said, "Jindal factory is closer to Tungabhadra reservoir than Almatti. Why did Yeddyurappa allow release of water from Almatti? He has to give an explanation."

The minister was countering recent accusations of corruption made by Yeddyurappa against him. Yeddyurappa had charged Patil with selling seven tmcft of water from the dead storage of Almatti to Jindal.

Patil charged that Yeddyurappa was jealous of the fact that he was emerging as a prominent leader with an "excellent political and administrative record."

Desiliting TB dam is not practicable: Patil 12.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Water Resources Minister MBPatil has said it is possible but not practicable to desilt the Tungabhadra dam, which has about 37 tmcft silt deposition. He was replying to a host of questions in the Assembly on Monday, on the silt problem in the dam which has reduced the impounding capacity. Pratapgouda Patil (Cong) asked the minister whether the government was aware of farmers desilting the dam. While saying he is aware, Patil said by the ongoing desilting not even one tmcft of additional water could be stored. The dam was built in 1953 and the impounding capacity was 132.48 tmcft. "The siltation was about 100.86 tmcft as per a survey conducted in 2008. To deposit the silt, at least 67,984 acres would be required. Earlier efforts to get private firms to remove silt did not materialise." Patil said as an alternative to desilting, the plan is to build a reservoir in Navali by spending Rs 5,600 crore to store 40 tmcft of water. A detailed project report is ready and the same would be placed before the ...
