Brief Description

Upper Penganga Projects envisages construction of two dams, viz Isapur dam across River Penganga, near village Isapur district Yavatmal and Sapli dam across river kayadhu near village Sapli district Parbhani in Godavari basin. Two main canal i.e. Isapur left bank Canal (ILBC) and Isapur Right bank (IRBC) canal taking off from Isapur dam and a feeder canal from Sapali dam namely Kayadhu feeder Canal (KFC) is envisaged to create ultimate irrigation potential of 1,34,280 ha in Yavatmal, Hingoli and Nanded district of Maharashtra state.

The components of the project are as under:

  1. Isapur dam is an earthen dam 3730 m long with maximum height of 48 meter above deepest foundation level. The spillway is located on the right flank of dam and is having 218.5 meter length and 15 radial gates of 12.0 m x 6.50 m to pass design flood of 10470 cumec
  2. Sapali dam is 3320 meter long earthen dam with maximum height of 19 meter above deepest foundation and 192 meter long gated spillway ( 13 no radial gates of 12.0 m x 8.0 m size)
  3. 84 km ILBC having 13 cumec discharge and 117 km long IRBC having 78.4 cumec discharge at head alongwith the distribution system to irrigate 19320 ha and 105190 ha (ICA)
  4. 13 km long Kayadhu Feeder Canal with head discharge capacity of 28.40 cumec to supplement discharge in IRBC and also to provide irrigation o 985 ha (ICA)

The project was approved by Planning Commission in June 1976 for Rs 84.48 crore (price level 1975-76) and CCA for the project was 1,38,969 ha and the potential is 1,11,501 ha. The project has received revised investment clearance for an estimated cost of Rs 3038 crore (2008-09) in April 2010 with CCA as 1,18,989 ha and potential is 1,16,728 ha. The project was started in the year 1971 and so far Isapur dam is constructed and almost 80% of canal network is also completed. Construction of Sapli dam is yet to start. At present the project is being funded under AIBP and upto March 2007, 93,000 ha potential is created. The project is likely to be completed by the year 2014.
