Dredging pays off, waterbodies filled to the brim in Bidar district – The Hindu

The cleaning and dredging of waterbodies taken up during summer seem to have paid off as most of them have filled up following the recent rain.The Vilaspur tank near Blackbuck Jungle Lodges and Resorts in Khanapur forests, for example, is flowing beyond the upper columns. Large portions of Malkapur tank and Naubad tank beds are full of water.The most visible change is in the Karanja dam backwaters. Water level has risen in the Pratapur tank in Basavakalyan and the tanks near Nirna and Talamadagi in Humnabad and Deshmukh tank in Aurad. “However, the Tegumpur tank in Aurad taluk is yet to impound enough water as there was not enough rain,” say residents.
