Indus cascade a Himalayan blunder - for Pakistan 22.5.2017 All News-IANS Stories
The five dams forming the North Indus River Cascade that China has just promised to finance and build in Pakistan -- including Pakistan-administered Kashmir -- has the potential to generate over 22,000 MW in an energy-starved country. But the dams will also stop the flow of silt which is the lifeline of agriculture downstream. In non-monsoon months from October to June, they may also reduce the flow of water down the Indus to Pakistan's Punjab and Sindh provinces.

Survey on silt in TB dam over, but no sign of desilting 9.5.2017 deccanherald.com
A survey to ascertain the amount of silt in the Tungabhadra dam has drawn to a close. The report is expected to reach the Tungabhadra Board within a month. The 60-day work was undertaken by R V Associates of Mumbai. It is done when the dam is full of water and also when the water level hits the bottom, like at present. Engineers say 0.5 tmc feet of silt gets collected in the dam every year, thereby reducing the water storage. Of the total capacity of 133 tmc feet in the dam, 33 tmc feet is silt, the survey showed. There were charges that the dam water was not being apportioned equally between Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh due to the silt. But there seems to be not much enthusiasm on the part of the government to desilt the reservoir. Minister for Water Resources M B Patil said the desilting work would require thousands of crores of rupees. Instead, there was a plan to construct a balancing reservoir to store the additional water. D Rangareddy, secretary of the Tungabhadra Dam Administrative Board, said ...

Challenges in saving Kappatagudda 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Many dry areas have fragmented patches of natural forests especially on the hills interspersed with vast stretches of agriculture lands and human habitation. These forest patches have played important roles in soil moisture conservation, providing refuge to wild animals, slowing the siltation of large, medium and small reservoirs etc. With the growing pressure of human and cattle population, these small patches of natural forests are facing further degradation and fragmentation. Most of these forest patches are marked as reserve forests. However, there are still some patches where notifications have been given under Section 4 of the Karnataka Forest Act, 1963, to mark them as reserve forests, but the matter is still pending with the Revenue Department that controls forest settlement proceedings. These cases have not been resolved even after the lapse of five decades. Sandur forests in Ballari district are an example of such mischief. In recent years, with the clearance from the central government many ...
