KOILSAGAR PROJECT
Preamble

Koilsagar Project is a medium irrigation project constructed in 1955 to irrigate an ayacut of 4856 Ha (12000 acre) in Amarchinta Constituency of Mahabubnagar District. Due to failure of Monsoon in catchments during the past several years only 1821 Ha(4500 acre) were irrigated under this project. By implementing sprinkler irrigation system for I.D. crops, the project proposes to stabilize a total ayacut of 4856 Ha(12000 acre), apart from creating new ayacut of 15480 Ha (38,250 acre) totalling 2033 Ha (50250 acre). The Government have accorded Administrative sanction vide G.O.Rt.No. 1658, Dt. 15.11.2005 for Rs. 359.00 crs. It is proposed to lift 3.90 TMC of Water already allocated by the Krishna Water Tribunal for Koilsagar Project from the foreshore of Priyadarshini Jurala Project Reservoir in two stages to a height of 118 m.
