Kaleshwaram P-8 progress reviewed

Minister for Irrigation T. Harish Rao inspected the works of gravity canal to carry water from Package-8 Pump House of Kaleshwaram project to Sriramsagar Flood Flow Canal (FFC) including the regulator and structures in Karimnagar district on Thursday.

Engineers at the site explained to the Minister that the 5.7 km gravity canal would have 10 structures and a regulator where it joins the FFC. Further, they told the minister that earthwork was completed for the entire length and lining of the canal was pending for about 1.4 km length as rains have interrupted progress of the work.

Of the 10 structures, five were completed and the remaining five would be over by the month-end. The Minister directed the engineers and the work agency to speed up the work as there was chance of releasing water to FFC from Sriramsagar project in the event of it getting filled with flood.
