Why Pattiseema Project?

Annually, approximately 3000 TMC of Godavari river water is wasted into the Bay of Bengal. In a bid to direct that water to arid regions in Rayalaseema, CBN conceived the idea of Pattiseema project.

The Pattiseema lift irrigation project would lift the surplus flooding water from river godavari into the Right Canal of Polavaram which is nearly complete. Under the Bachawat tribunal and inter-state agreement, 80 tmc of water can be diverted from River Godavari to River Krishna.

 The water from Pattiseema project will travel 160 kms. and will join River Krishna at Vijayawada in the up waters of Prakasam barrage. Water will then be supplied to the Rayalaseema through Pothireddypadu head regulator for its Irrigational and Domestic needs making it a drought free region.
