III. CONTEMPLATED PROJECTS: A. Major Projects: 1. GODAVARI LIFT IRRIGATION SCHEME: 1. Godavari Lift Irrigation Scheme was originally intended to divert and utilize 50 TMC of Godavari Water to irrigate about Five Lakh Acres in the upland areas covering parts of Warangal, Nalgonda, Karimnagar and Medak Districts. 2. M/s WAPCOS, a Government of India undertaking was entrusted with the work of detailed investigation and preparation of detailed project report and approval of CWC. After detailed study and investigation, considering the factors like total water availability, irrigable land, cropping pattern, method of irrigation four alternatives of Godavari Lift Irrigation Scheme were evolved duly considering the cost criteria, B.C. Ratio, I.R.R. etc., After the detailed examination of techno economic evaluation of the four options by the working group in detail and after detailed deliberations, it was recommended to adopt the B1 alternative. The Scheme (Alternative B1)was also examined at Government level and the proposed alternative is accepted in principle. 3. Accordingly the B1 alternative having a total length of water conductor System of about 182 Kms. And to utilize 70 Cumecs (36.9 TMC) and to irrigate an area of 2.62 Lakh Ha.(6.47 lakh acres) covering 33 Mandals(Warangal –1,79,717 Ha in 18 Mandals, Nalgonda – 60,485 Ha in 8 Mandals, Medak – 15,458 Ha in 4 Mandals, Karimnagar – 6003 Ha in 3Mandals) with 5 No.s of WCS at an estimated cost of 5216 Crores (As per DPR). The final alignment of the W.C.S. as recommended is connecting lntake to Bhim Ghanpur – Ramappa – Salivagu – Nagaram to Dharama Sagar – Ghanpur R.S. and finally to Peddachervu, and Aswaraopally. The CWC has accorded ‘In Principle Consent’ for preparation of detailed project report vide letter No.6/235/2001/PkA(S)/558, dated:23-05-2003. It is proposed to take up this Scheme in 2 Stages from intake point Gangaram(V) to Station Ghanpur Tank connecting Bhimghanpur tank, Ramappa Lake, Salivagu, Nagaram Tank and Dharmasagar Tank enroute is treated as Stage-I and beyond Station Ghanpur Tank up to Aswaraopally tank and Peddachervu is treated as Stage-II. The water conductor system is consisting of 5 pipelines to carry 70 Cumecs of water with 10 pumps at each Pumping Station. Initially One pipe line with two pumps to carry about 10 Cumecs of Water to irrigate about 1.23 lakhs acres covering 10 Mandals(Warangal 8, Karimnagar 2) is proposed to be taken up immediately and this is treated as Phase-I of Stage-I. Tenders have been finalized and the work is entrusted to M/S HCC- KBL J.V . for an amount of Rs. 843,97,60,745/- Crores. The Agreement is concluded on 08-01-2004. The works is grounded on 22-01-2004 and the work is in progress. 2.INCHAMPALLY PROJECT: The Detailed Project Report of Inchampally Project with FRL + 112.770 M was sent to C.W.C., Govt. of India, members states during October-1998. The Project report was not cleared by the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Govt. of India, because of extensive loss of reserved forest, rich in FLORA & FAUNA due to submergence. The C.W.C. suggested to go initially for reduced FRL +95.00 M to avoid heavy submergence and interstate implications until a mutually agreed scope of the dam is finalized by the states involved for mutual advantages. 1. During the Godavari Water Utilization Authority meeting convened by Hon’ble Chief Minister on 11-02-2001, the I & CAD Department was advised to finalise the Project report for FRL + 95.00 M for sending same to the High level committee and co-basin states for their concurrence. The “TASK FORCE” inspected the Inchampally Project site on 07-04-2001 and discussed on the aspects of the Project on 08-04-2001 at Warangal. The estimates of Head Works and Canals have been prepared. The A.P.GENCO has been requested to furnish the decisions / designs of power house and power generation particulars and the particulars are awaited from A.P.GENCO. The EIA, EMP and R & R particulars are also awaited from EPTRI, Hyderabad. Detailed Project Report of the Inchampally Project with FRL + 95.00 M would be finalized soon after the receipt of the reports from A.P.GENCO & EPTRI. Proposals for constituting Joint Control Board of concerned states are recommended by High Level Committee for resolving inter state aspects is under consideration. The Estimated cost of Inchampally Project with FRL + 95.00 M with SSR of 1999-2000 is worked out to Rs.3597 Crores to irrigate an ayacut of 1,57,000 Acres in Karimnagar, Warangal and Khammam Districts and also there is provision of water for 4.40 lakh acres by lift to SRSP Stage-II ayacut. 3. YELLAMPALLY BARRAGE: The Project is proposed to construct across the river Godavari (V) Yellampally (M), Karimnagar District at an estimate cost of Rs. 5,300 Crores to create an I.P. of 4.98 Lakhs acres in the District of Adilabad (0.58 Lakhs Acres) Warangal, Khammam (4.40 Lakhs Acres). The detailed investigation of the Project is completed and programmed to be completed by September month 2008 year. The required clearances and Land Acquisition are expected to be commpleted by March, 2005.
B.Medium Irrigation Projects:Nil C. Minor Irrigation Projects: 14 (Nos.) Schemes are contemplated for benefiting an ayacut of 6980-17 acres.

The barrage works were taken up at a cost of Rs. 408.85 crore and about Rs. 153 crore was already spent on the project. After the construction of barrage to a height of 138.3 meters, tenders will be called for the erection of 62 crest gates to make full reservoir level of 148 meters of the project. The gates will be installed within 18 months after sanctioning of the work.
On the other hand, the construction of pump house and approach channel for the lifting of 6.5 TMC of water to NTPC, Ramagundam and 2 TMC to Manthani Assembly segment to provide irrigation facilities to 20,000 acres was also progressing. About four pumps supplied by BHEL would be installed at the pump house for the lifting of water from the project. Against a total of 11.6 kilometer pipeline to lift water to NTPC, 9.6 kilometers of pipeline has been laid.
SYP SE Satyanand and EE D Tulasi Das said that the NTPC Ramagundam had agreed to 10 MWs for lifting of water from the project to NTPC.


The ambitious Yellampalli project (Sripada Sagar project) on the Godavari at Yellampalli village in Ramagundam mandal of Karimnagar district will be fruitful only if the project is constructed at a height of 148 metres to store 20 tmcft of water.But, the State Government's decision to construct the project at a height of 143.5 metres to store only 9 tmcft of water is causing concern among the people of the district. Notification issuedRecently, the Government issued notification inviting consultants for preparation of the project report to get all clearances from the Central Water Commission and other departments and construction of project at a height of 143.5 metres.The Chief Minister, Y.S Rajashekhar Reddy, at the stone-laying function for the Yellampalli project, had assured of measures for constructing the project at a height of 148 metres.According to official sources, the dependable yield available at Yellampalli barrage site is about 65 tmcft of water of which 60 tmcft can be utilised — 7 tmcft for NTPC, Ramagundam, and 53 tmcft for drinking and irrigation requirements of the region. "For utilising 60 tmcft of water, 4,600 cusecs water is required for 150 days. In view of SRSP and Kadam projects on the upstream of this scheme, there will not be perennial in flows to the barrage even in rainy season.The Government has given administrative sanction for the first phase of the Yellampalli project for Rs. 900 crores at a height of 143.5 metres to store 9 tmcs of water.But there is every possibility of getting silt and thus reducing the live capacity up to 4 tmcft or even less. Even this 4 tmcft will not be sufficient for 10 days.If the project is constructed at a height of 148 metres to store 20 tmcft of water, even if 8 tmcft of water is lost due to silt, the balance of 12 tmcft of water can be sufficient for 30 days of pumping.Cost-cutting moveThe proposal to integrate the Pranahita river water with Godavari river water at Yellampalli project to irrigate about 20 lakh acres of upland regions of Telangana districts by utilising about 140 tmcft of water, will be most economical in capital cost as well as recurring cost when compared to Devadula lift irrigation scheme, irrigation officials said.There would not be any problem of submergence, officials said adding that for the construction of project at 143.5 metres, the spill-way vents will be around 108. For the height of 148 metres, the spill-way vents would be 79 saving a huge amount of civil works. The difference amount of Rs. 75 to 80 crores saved through civil works can be distributed towards land acquisition compensation, they suggested.
