      A dam is a large wall or barrier that blocks or stops the flow of water, forming a reservoir or a lake. Most dams have a section called a spillway or weir over which, or through which, water flows, either sometimes or always. Dams generally serve the primary purpose of retaining water. The tallest dam in the world is the meter high Nurek Dam in Tajikistan.   IRRIGATION - Statistical Year Book India Irrigation.

Not all the big temples are dams. India has a dormant but not dead $ billion scheme to bring “surplus” water from north to south by linking up the country's main rivers.

      Most irrigation dams in this sample have been constructed by private individuals, companies or boards and are subject to legal requirements related to dam safety, water use, and the environment. 8, 9 Given their value, South Africa has more dams than any other country in Africa, and the number more than doubled between and , to over Cited by: 1.   Alluding to Big Dams in The Idea of India, Sunil Khilnani wrote that in the s, India fell in love with inaugurating the Bhakra Nangal project in , Nehru called dams the Author: Kapil Subramanian.

Putative winners and losers. Most irrigation dams in India Dams and irrigation in India. book embankment dams. That is, they consist of a wall built across a river valley to impound water so as to form a reservoir upstream and a system of spillways and gates to bypass the wall so as to maintain normal river flow and convey water.

The safety of the dams is the prime responsibility of the state governments and the dam owners and the Dam Safety Bill proposes an institutional framework and provisions for prevention of dam failure related disaster through proper surveillance, inspection, operation and maintenance of dams in India.

Dams and canals for irrigation Canal system of irrigation had been prevalent in India for centuries but it was the Ganga Canal that laid the foundation for large scale diversion of water to farms. The article gives insight about list of major important dams in India with river and state in which it is built.

It also enlists all the important Dams built List of Dams in India with respect to river and state name. This account of some of the more important irrigation works of India was first published in Part II of the Twelfth Annual Report of the Director of the United States Geological Survey, for The demands for this report were so great that the entire edition was exhausted within a few by: Increase in population and changing lifestyles has increased demand for water (largely for irrigation) in both urban and rural areas.

India has 18% of world population, having 4% of worlds fresh water, out of which 80% is used in agriculture. Irrigation: An Historical Perspective Siltation of ancient dams and reservoirs is a testament to inadequate soil conservation measures that eventually reduced the productivity of the land as well as destroyed the capacity of reservoirs to provide an adequate supply of water (3).

Erosion of irrigation channels, in geologicallyCited by: 2. Download Irrigation Engineering By – Irrigation involves the artificial application of water to soil, usually for assisting the growth of crops in dry areas or where there is a shortage of the process of agriculture becomes increasingly mechanised, the application of scientific methods and technology to the procedure of irrigation comes as no surprise.

Download Irrigation Engineering And Hydraulic Structures By Santosh Kumar Garg – The book is designed to cover the major fields of agricultural and environmental engineering such as weather, plant, soil, water, and basics of on-farm water book will be quite useful for the students of agricultural engineering.

Students of other related branches of engineering sciences, and. It is 26 km in length hence Is one of the longest dams in India. It has two towers namely “Gandhi Minar” and “Nehru Minar”. It has a big reservoir whose length is 55 km which supports irrigation, power generation and flood control in that area.

A dam is a barrier that impounds water or underground streams. Reservoirs created by dams not only suppress floods but also provide water for activities such as irrigation, human consumption, industrial use, aquaculture, and navigability.

List of Dams in India: State Name River Name Telangana Nizam Sagar Dam Manjira River Andhra Pradesh Somasila Dam Pennar River Andhra Pradesh Srisailam Dam. India’s products are also exported in a large amount. So, agriculture cannot be compromised anyhow.

70 % of Indian population depends on agriculture. In a way agriculture is the life source of India and irrigation is the life source of agriculture. Irrigation has to be done no matter what and proper use of irrigation is also necessary.

The Tehri Dam at Tehri in Uttarakhand which lies on the Bhagirathi River in India holds the rank of highest dam in India and one of the tallest dams in World. The Tehri Dam was built in the year with MW of hydro power generation capacity.

The Sardar Sarovar Dam is a gravity dam on the Narmada river near Navagam, Gujarat in India. Four Indian states, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharastra and Rajasthan, receive water and electricity supplied from the dam.

The foundation stone of the project was laid out by Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru on 5 April Country: India.

in modern India by building dams in most of our river basins. What are dams and how do they help us in conserving and managing water. Dams were traditionally built to impound rivers and rainwater that could be used later to irrigate agricultural fields.

Today, dams are built not just for irrigation File Size: 1MB. Almost 40 per cent of India’s large dams are in Maharashtra. And yet, the State wants more. With 2, large dams already dotting its landscape, Maharashtra is building another big dams.

Irrigation in India includes a network of major and minor canals from Indian rivers, groundwater well based systems, tanks, and other rainwater harvesting projects for agricultural activities. Of these groundwater system is the largest. Inonly about % of total agricultural land in India was reliably irrigated, and remaining 2/3rd cultivated land in India is dependent on monsoons.

Author: International Commission on Large Dams.; l Board of Irrigation and Power. Publisher: New Delhi: Central Board of Irrigation and Power, Indian National Committee for International Commission on Large Dams, India being an agricultural country depends immensely on water.

Nearly 64% of cultivated land depends on monsoon in India. Proper management and utilization of water becomes important not only government but also for common man. Under Bharat Nirman, it was targeted to create irrigation potential of 10 million hectares.Small dams and irrigation schemes also increase malaria risk, but to date no systematic analyses of the cumulative impact exists.

The World Commission on Dams (WCD ) concluded that large dams should be a development opportunity for all, not a privileged few. New ways of conceptualizing and managing water resource systems can help achieve.
