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.

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 ...
