IRRIGATION PROFILE OF EAST GODAVARI DISTRICT

INTRODUCTION

East Godavari District lies in between 16° 30' to 17° 00' N Latitude and 81° 30' to 82° 30'E Longitude and occupies a geographical area of 10,807 Sq. Km. spread over in 60 Mandals with population of 51.515 lakhs (2011 census). The East Godavari District is bordered by river Godavari on West and Bay of Bengal on Eastern side. The district flourishes with lands of fertile soils, good rain fall and balance climatic conditions and possesses all the nature's hand work like perennial rivers, mountains, forests and also the sea coast. The district is enriched by huge water resources of River Godavari and major streams like Yeleru, Suddagedda, Pampa and Thandava. The Delta coastal line is around 150 Kms in the Eastern sea board of India with minor ports at Kakinada and Odalarevu. The mean annual rainfall precipitation is 1219 mm and is mostly confined to the period from June to November.

Preamble

Godavari Delta System (GDS) is an established old Irrigation System in operation since 1862. The old anicut was constructed by Sir Arthur Cotton during 1857-62 which has served the delta system for more than a century. As it was showing signs of distress, the anicut was replaced by Sir Arthur Cotton Barrage (S.A.C.B.) during the years 1970-88.

4. Maddigedda Reservoir Project:

(UNDER THE CONTROL OF IRRIGATION CIRCLE, DOWLAISWARAM)

Preamble

This was originally contemplated with creating an irrigation potential of 4,000 acres. The head works and main canal up to Km. 13.000 were completed by 1984. Further, works could not be taken up due to paucity of funds. The irrigation potential created so far is 2,718.10 acres (1100 Ha). The balance works are proposed to be completed under A.I.B.P. with an estimated cost of Rs.7.20 Crores to creating balance irrigation potential of 1507.31 Acres (610 Ha). The work was started during the year 2002 and the work was completed. Forest clearance is received for the excavation of canal from Km. 13.410 to Km.15.700 in 12/2007. Total Irrigation potential created only 4000 Acres excluding Achayyapeta No.II distributory. Due to the align proposal of the Achayyapeta No.II distributory is passing through Forest area and it is in high elevation then the Achayyapeta No.I distributor and the Proposed Achayyapeta No.II Distributory has not been taken-up.
