Irrigation Tank, irrigate Cultural Command Area (CCA)


The minor irrigation tank plays a very important rule in irrigation as well as local ecosystem in the arid and semi arid regions of south India. Tank irrigation is considered as one of the ancient irrigation system. Since the south Indian tanks are century years old and not being used due to inadequate rainfall, silt deposition, improper maintenance of tank components. The tank irrigation system follows a declining trend so that proper utilization of existing old tanks has to be done by using them as a irrigation land. The main objectives of this project is to irrigate Cultural Command Area (CCA) of about 508.5033 ha and the silted area of existing old tank and also to recharge ground water table. This paper focused on proposal of new irrigation tank on the upstream side of existing irrigation tank so that proposed tank will irrigate the land, mainly silt deposited area of the old existing tank. In this study, area behind the upstream side of the Muchkandi minor irrigation tank near bagalkot, Karnataka is taken as a study area. In this study a new minor irrigation reservoir was proposed and new minor irrigation tank was designed.
