Project Features

i.Masonry Dam: Consists of over flow and on-over flow blocks. The length of spillway is 148 m with 8 No of radial gates of size 15m x 12.5 m. The length of non-over flow blocks on the left flank and right flanks are 41.5 and 43.5 m respectively. The maximum height of the masonry dam is 34.6 m. The gross storage capacity of reservoir is 77. 84 million cubic meter (MCM) and the live storage capacity is 70.04 MCM.
ii. Earthen dam is envisaged on either flanks of the masonry dam. The length of earthen dam on left flank is 169.50m and on right flank is 60.0 m with maximum height of 27.76m and 9.0 m respectively. A partially lined main canal 29.73 km with distribution system provides irrigation to 9848 ha of CCA (potential – 12507 ha) in 27 villages of Kukshi Tehsil, district Dhar. The Project was started in the year 1987-88 and the Planning Commission gave investment clearance to the project vide letter No 30(4)/84-I&CAD, dated 01/01/1985 for an estimated cost of Rs 30.75 crore (1985 Price level). The TACTechnical Advisory Committee in its 103rd meeting held in October 2009 gave approval to the revised estimate amounting to Rs 230.61 crore (2009 price level) without change of scope. The project has created its full potential and under AIBP balance-lining work of canal system has been taken up and the project is likely to be completed during the financial year 2012-13.
