Pre Project Status / Problems of project area:

  • Land is highly degraded and erosion is occurring at a large stage from arable and non arable lands with high rate of sedimentation.
  • Deep and scarce ground Water.
  • Long Dry Spells causing drought like conditions.
  • Water scarcity for both humans and livestock, as ponds and natural water bodies dry up during peak summer.
  • Even adopting all possible management practices under natural conditions a huge amount of rainfall flow as runoff.
  • Acute storage of fuel and fodder prevails in the area.

Details of Work executed:

A water harvesting structure has been constructed across the Kajul Karnal Khad, Four kilometer from Block Dhaar Kalan in the village Hardosaran. The total catchment area of the project 25 ha and command area 10 ha. The total height of the water harvesting structure is 2.0 mts. The gross storage capacity of reservoir is 4.41hectare mt out of which 3.30 is live storage. Total length of the conveyance system is 200 mt Pvc Pipe 110 mm and 150 mts M.S Pipe.

Benefits/Outcomes of project:

Regular and assured supply of water throughout the year also in the peak summer season in the month of june and july had adequate water to meets the needs of local community for irrigation at least three to four live saving irrigations. Nineteen families belonging to different communities are enjoying the benefit of this water Harvesting structure. Animal needs of drinking water also being met.
