Panel inspects Srisailam dam

Vaidyanathan Committee members inspected Srisailam project in Kurnool district on Thursday in the backdrop of a row between Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Maharashtra on water availability and its utilisation.

A team of retired irrigation engineers in the Vaidyanathan Committee enquired with Superintending Engineer of Srisailam project Appala Naidu about the water storage levels in the reservoir and quantum of water being released downstream.

The panel’s visit assumes significance in the wake of Telangana filing a petition in Supreme Court on its share of Krishna waters.

The team members also visited Srisailam left bank hydel power plant and Srisailam left bank tunnel (Yelimineti Madhava Reddy project) works at Domalapenta in Mahabubnagar district.
