Water flows out from Bhima, Nettempadu projects

Five years of efforts made by hundreds of engineers and workers have paid off finally with the water from the Krishna river flowing out from the mammoth lift irrigation schemes of Nettempadu and Bhima in Mahabubnagar district after Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy inaugurated them on Friday and Saturday.

The water is lifted from the foreshores of the reservoir of Jurala dam at Chintarevula for Nettempadu (Rs. 1,414 crore spent till now against its cost of Rs. 1,428 crore) and at Tirumalayapalli for Bhima (Rs. 1,705 crore out of Rs. 2,158-crore outlay). The flow in the canals of these Jalayagnam projects is expected to continue for a few days as, fortunately, Jurala is overflowing.

Although the entire stretch of the 169-km long canal of Nettempadu is fully completed, water is being provided only for 2,500 acres now out of 38,000-acres planned ayacut in Dharur, Gattu, Maldakal, Gadwal Aija and four other mandals, due to some technical problems. In contrast, the supply is being made to a larger extent of 35,000 acres (out of 2.03 lakh acres) under Bhima in Maganur, Makthal, Narva and Atmakur areas. Drinking water problem is in for being solved immediately at a few villages.

For the present, among the many balancing reservoirs, only Gudemdoddi and Yenugunta are being filled under Nettempadu and Bhima respectively. On full capacity operation, Nettempadu will utilise 21.84 tmcft of Jurala waters and Bhima 20 tmcft.
