This paper suggests an approach to a convincing method for control of surficial soil erosion by using Jute Geotextiles (JGT). The approach can be extended to other natural geotextiles as well.

Creation of apex water institutions and irrigation department reforms, capacity building and business process re-engineering under the UPWSR Project has already been discussed.

The 720MW Mangdechhu Project is located on Mangdechhu River in Trongsa Dzongkhag (District) of Central Bhutan. The dynamic analysis for the Mangdechhu Concrete Das is still to be carried out and the site specific seismic design parameters are under vetting by the National Committee for Seismic Design Parameters (NCSDP), India

This study makes an attempt to examine analytically to prove how tank rehabilitation is useful for both direct (farmers) and indirect (landless, poor, women and other vulnerable group) tank users. The tank systems have provided insulation from dependence on rains to the people living in the fragile rainfed areas.

In this paper an attempt has been made to analyze the sedimentation surveys and rates in live storage capacity of reservoirs. The analysis is based on the available data of 28 reservoirs from different basins of Maharashtra.

Hydro power plants located on the Himalayan rivers, typically, have had to endure high silt content in the water passing through the turbines causing enormous damages to the under-water parts of the turbine. The hydro power generating companies are engaged in mitigating this menance and optimizing generation and profits.

Out of the estimated hydro power potential of 20000 MW in Himachal Pradesh, projects to the tune of about 6370 MW are under operation, 5744 MW are under execution allotted for execution during 11th plan, 5615 MW are allotted/under process of allotment and expected to yield benefit during 12th plan and the proposals for 1528 MW are under various stages of processing.

The 1500 MW Nathpa Jhakri Hydroelectric Project was planned on the basis of survey of India Topo sheets of scale of 1:50,000. The survey of the project area and various project components was got done on a scale of 1: 10,000 for the preparation of DPR drawings. Further survey as per requirement of Design Department was also got done to freeze the layout of the project and its components.

During July 1986, hydrological studies were carried out in consultation with Central Water Commission (CWC) to estimate the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF) based on snowmelt flood peak and the Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) in the catchment area of the Nathpa dam.

Satluj River is a major river of the Indus system and originates from Mansarovar lake in Tibet. The total catchment area of the Satluj upto Bhakra Dam is about 56875 sq km out of which about 36900 sq km lies in Tibet. The total catchment area upto Nathpa dam site is about 49820 sq km.
