Reservoir operation is very important part of planning and management of water resource system. Water in the reservoir can be used for Agricultural purpose as well as Electricity generation. An attempt has been made in this paper by using a linear programming for optimal reservoir operation of Reservoirs. Asia’s first hydro electric power station established in 1902 at Shivanasamudram. Karnataka was the first state to have longest transmission line in world in 1902 from shivanasamudram to Kolar gold Field covering distance of 147 KM. A case study of Mahadhayi River Project in Karnataka.

Imrat Namdev and her younger sister Pushpa Namdev were neighbors in Chhatarpur district, in the drought-hit Indian region of Bundelkhand.

The Kanto region may experience a serious drought this summer, possibly triggering a raft of restrictions, due to an “unprecedented” shortage of water in lakes and reservoirs supplying the area, of

Researchers have just found a huge reservoir of groundwater below California - making the supply of water below the state three times larger than previously estimated.

Small, fast growing wild fish could be crucial allies in the race to end hunger in some of the world's most chronically poor and underfed regions, according to a new FAO report on fisheries in the drylands of sub-Saharan Africa.

Hydropower reservoirs are artificial water systems and comprise a small proportion of the Earth’s continental territory. However, they play an important role in the aquatic biogeochemistry and may affect the environment negatively. Since the 90s, as a result of research on organic matter decay in manmade flooded areas, some reports have associated greenhouse gas emissions with dam construction. Pioneering work carried out in the early period challenged the view that hydroelectric plants generate completely clean energy.

The report of on the Spot Study of Water Situation in Drought Affected Areas of the country (2015-16) has recommended construction of water harvesting structures, mass awareness among citizen for water conservation, construction of new water storage structures, interlinking of rivers, renovation and repair of existing water bodies as some of the

Judgement of the National Green Tribunal (Eastern Zone Bench, Kolkata) in the matter of Satyanarayan Banchhor & Others Vs Union of India & Others dated 01/06/2016 regarding the validity of Environmental clearance granted by the Ministry of Environment and Forests to the State of Odisha for construction of Lower Suktel Project at Bolangir, Odisha.

NGT dismisses the Application. The Judgement noted that the EC granted to the project proponent in 1998 is valid and no fresh EC or revalidation of the EC is required.

The Water Resources Ministry is on tenterhooks on account of its Central Water Commission’s fresh study pointing to a continuous decline in the water level in country’s 91 major reservoirs.

CO2 emissions from inland waters are commonly determined by indirect methods that are based on the product of a gas transfer coefficient and the concentration gradient at the air water interface (e.g., wind-based gas transfer models). The measurements of concentration gradient are typically collected during the day in fair weather throughout the course of a year. Direct measurements of eddy covariance CO2 fluxes from a large inland water body (Ross Barnett reservoir, Mississippi, USA) show that CO2 effluxes at night are approximately 70% greater than those during the day.
