Kaleshwaram team working for Polavaram!

The gigantic Kaleshwaram irrigation scheme on Godavari river in Telangana, the world’s biggest multi-stage lift irrigation scheme, is considered to be an engineering marvel and has won the accolades from the Centre and even irrigation experts from other countries.

Megha Engineering and Infrastructure Limited (MEIL), which has executed the Kaleshwaram project, has bagged the contract for the prestigious Polavaram project on Godavari river in West Godavari and has commenced the project works after getting the clearance from the state high court last week.

Interestingly, the same engineering team which had worked on Kaleshwaram project is now said to be working on Polavaram project.

Within days of formally commencing the project works, the expert team from Kaleshwaram landed in Polavaram to execute the works.

As part of it, the engineers are now concentrating on draining out excess water from the project area, along with slush and soil deposited in the spill channel.

Specially designed pumps have been erected at the spillway to drain out the water so that concrete works would begin at the right earnest.

“Now that there are no rains and floods to Godavari river, the first thing that needs to be done is to clean up the entire area which had witnessed heavy waterlogging due to stoppage of work in the last six months. Simultaneously, the works on fabrication and erection of gates would be done,” an official said.
