Introduction And History
Nizamsagar Project was constructed by the Nizam during 1923-31 to provide irrigation to 2.75 lakh acres in Nizambad District. Improvements to Nizamsagar project are aimed at restoring the lost capacity of the reservoir due to silting, by raising the height of the gates by 1.5 metersand strengthening the gravity dam.
The modernisation of Nizamsagar Project system was taken up during 1970 and the full reservoir level (FRL) of Nizamsagar has been raised from 426.87 to 428.24 meters which resulted in, increase in the storage capacity of the reservoir from 11.8 to 17.8 thousand million cubic feet (TMC).
Singitham and Kalyanivagu diversions to supplement Nizamsagar main canal have been constructed at a cost of Rs. 985 lakhs as suggested by the Technical Expert Committee to minimize the gap ayacut, with National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) loan assistance.
