Implementation of 96.3 CBM Sarambala Medium Irrigation Scheme at Sawantwadi in Sindhudurg

The Sarambala medium irrigation scheme is a project that aims to provide irrigation facilities to around 5,000 hectares of farmland in the Sawantwadi region of Sindhudurg district in Maharashtra.
The project, by facilitating the much-needed irrigation facilities for the local farmers, will increase their agricultural productivity and enhance their socio-economic status.

Key Details

The Sarambala medium irrigation scheme is a joint venture between the Government of Maharashtra and the Government of India.
The project involves the construction of a dam across the Sarambala river, which will store around 96.3 cubic metres (CBM) of water, and a canal network to distribute the water to the farmlands. It also includes the installation of pumping stations and power transmission lines.

The Various Components of the Project:

  • Dam: The construction of the dam is critical to the project's success as it will store water during the monsoon season, which can be utilised whenever required.
  • Canal network: The network includes the main canal, which starts from the dam and extends to the farmlands, and branch canals that distribute water to individual fields.
  • Pumping stations and power transmission lines: The pumping stations are required to pump water from the dam to the main canal and to pump water to higher elevations. The power transmission lines are necessary to provide electricity to the pumping stations and other infrastructure.

Benefits to the Locals

The Sarambala medium irrigation scheme brings significant benefits to the locals, particularly the farmers.
It will provide them with a reliable source of irrigation water, which will help them grow crops throughout the year. This will increase their agricultural productivity, and they will be able to grow high-value crops, which will improve their income.
The project will also create employment opportunities for the locals during the construction and maintenance phases.
