Project in Brief

Salandi Irrigation project comprises a reservoir by construction of a dam across river Salandi, a tributary of Baitarani, near Hadagarh at Latitude 210-17’-18” N and longitude of 860-18’-00” E. Salandi dam is a composite dam with 640m length earth dam and 114.6m long masonry dam having spillway gates of 8 spans of 12.2m each. The height of the dam is 51.82m. The catchment area of the reservoir is 673 km2 and design flood discharge is 5140 m3/sec. The water spread area of the reservoir is 31.82 km2 at FRL(82.3m) with gross storage capacity of 601 Mm3. The project was started in 1960 and completed in 1983.

Irrigation is not provided from the dam directly. Water let out through the river is diverted for irrigation at Bidyadharpur by constructing a barrage. One main canal namely Salandi main canal was constructed as per the original proposal. Subsequently, the FRL of the reservoir was raised by 6.1m (20feet) installing 8 number of radial gates. The additional storage available was planned for utilization by extending irrigation on the right bank by Right Bank Canal called Anandpur Canal. The Salandi Main canal is functioning since 1973.
