Project Description

The Khadakpurna Major Irrigation Project is being constructed across river Khadakpurna, a tributary of river Godavari in the Godavari Basin in Buldhana district of Maharashtra. The project envisages construction of 2160 m long earth dam with a maximum height of 18.50 m and 381.67 m long composite masonry and concrete dam with the maximum height of 51 m having 282 m long central gated spillway with 54.67 m long non-overflow blocks on left flank and 45 m long blocks on right flank of the spillway. The ogee-shaped spillway is provided with 19 radial gates each of size 12m x 8m to pass design flood of 18,047 m3/s. The canal system consists of 38 km long Right Bank Canal (RBC); 10 km long Left Bank Canal (LBC); 14.70 km long lift Canal taking off at RD 6840 m of LBC; 11.20 km long lift Canal taking off at RD 18230 m of RBC. A Lift Irrigation Scheme in 4 stages i.e. Stage - I to IV; and Dagadwadi LIS have also been planned. In addition, there is provision for the offshore lift irrigation schemes to be constructed at the cost borne by the farmers to cater to 2500 ha of the culturable command area (CCA).

Thus, the total CCA of 25900 ha would be catered by this project. The project on completion will create the annual ultimate irrigation potential of 24864 ha in Chikhli taluka (11696 ha), Deualgaon-Raja taluka (10812 ha) and Sindkhed-Raja taluka (2356 ha) of Buldhana district benefiting 27, 38 and 12 villages respectively. The whole command area has been declared as drought prone area. The project will also provide 4.687 Mm3 water for domestic use for 34 villages and 3.10 Mm3 water for industrial use.

The construction of the project started in 1993-94. The project was approved by the Planning Commission, Govt. of India for an estimated cost of Rs. 578.56 crore at 2005-06 price level in March 2007. The latest estimated cost of the project at 2008-09 price level is Rs. 645.21 crore.The project has been included in AIBP under PM Package for the Vidarbha Region during 2006-07. So far, the dam is completed and the canals are under progress. Upto March 2011, potential of 10511 hectare is created.
