CM instructs officers to evolve a comprehensive strategy to maintain canal system in AP

CM instructs officers to evolve a comprehensive strategy to maintain canal system in AP

Hyderabad, May 24 (UNI) Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao instructed the irrigation officers to evolve a comprehensive strategy for maintaining the canal system in tune with the continuous water flow from the projects in the state which hither to was a drought prone effected area.



At a review meeting held at Pragathi Bhavan here on Friday, the Chief Minister told them to get prepared in all aspects for maintaining the barrages, reservoirs, canals, distributaries, sluices an official statement here said.



"Telangana has been a drought prone area until recently. Water for Irrigation was available only through Sree Ram Sagar project canals and other canals just once in 3-4 years and that too for name-sake. Due to this reason for diverting water flow to agriculture fields the required maintenance of canal system was not taken care of properly. However the situation is totally changed now.



Irrespective of rainfall, water would be available in abundance in river Godavari through Pranahitha. Lifting of water through Kaleshwaram project will commence from this year in July. Water would be pumped from Medigadda to Sundilla, to Mid-Maner through Annaram, to Yellampally and from there SRSP project, to Mallanna Sagar and up to Kondapochamma Sagar. Against this background the Irrigation department has to get it self-prepared to carry out all this. Water would be filled with full capacity in to Mid Maner, Lower Maner, Yellampally, SRSP Reservoirs.



The gates and the sluices of these Reservoirs have to be thoroughly examined and required repairs are to be undertaken on war footing. The Gates are to be kept ready in such a way that they could be opened as and when required.



The Flood flow canal, Kakathiya canal, The Lakshmi canal, The Saraswathi canal, the Gutpha canals, the Alisagar canals etc are to be kept intact. The sluices, Distributaries and regulators of these canals are to be examined thoroughly and the required repairs are to be under taken within the next twenty days on war footing and are to be kept ready for use.



The required funds would be released immediately. For supervising the water flow and diversion works, the required personnel from top to bottom have to be deployed. The complete canal system from beginning to end will have to be streamlined in all aspects in tune with water flow. Since the water flow along with the canals will be to its full capacity the bunds either side are to be maintained with full strength. For all these a work shop need to be organized with Irrigation department Engineers and also the strategy needs to be finalised ” said the Chief Minster.
