This study by Vasudha Foundation has created a comprehensive mapping of all existing and proposed coal fired power plants on water related parameters. It monitors the generation of coal based thermal power plants in river basins, that are affected by water scarcity and reviews how the power generation is impacted due to this.
Maintaining and restoring connectivity between source populations is essential for the long term viability of wide-ranging species, many of which occur in landscapes that are under pressure to meet increasing infrastructure needs. Identifying barriers in corridors can help inform conservation and infrastructure development agencies so that development objectives can be achieved without compromising conservation goals.
This study analyses the August 2018 Kerala floods by examining earlier floods in the region, rainfall data before and during the disaster, and both the reservoir operations and runoff computations of various reservoirs in Kerala.
Reservoir sedimentation has been a pertinent issue for diversion structures for a very long time. Sedimentation of reservoirs pose problems like loss of live storage, erosion and turbine coating, frequent shutdown of power due to maintenance of hydraulic machinery etc.
