TUBE WELLS AND OTHER WELLS
Now, let’s quickly get into some specific controversies surrounding the use of water resources in the state.
Interestingly, the Godavari River receives nearly 600 TMC of water almost at the tail end of the river. Even if Nizam Telangana manages to tap the Godavari River fully at higher altitudes of its region, it will not affect the Kosta farmer significantly.
1) Fight for effective use of the entire 366 TMC of Krishna water allocated to the Nizam Telangana region. Just eliminating seepage in the canals and removing silt from the reservoirs could dramatically improve canal water utility.
3) Develop tank irrigation and at least restore it to a state where it was a few hundred years ago.
4) Fight against neighboring states illegally tapping water.
