A hydropower project is a renewable, efficient technology for the production of energy. In these types of projects, settling basin or sedimentation tank is the most important part of the project. This will extract the sediments which are coming from the intake site due to the reason that sediment is the biggest enemy of the any hydro power projects. Most of the hydro power plants are affected by excessive sediment. Sediments decrease the capacity of reservoir, erode the hydraulic structure of settling basin, harmful for turbine structure or erosion of turbine components and also harmful for intake and divide wall.in this paper attempt has been made to review the different types of desilting devices being deployed hydro power plants.
