Abstract:

The Nagarjuna Sagar Project is one of the prestigious projects in India and it irrigates nearly 9 lakhs ha area .The canal is divided into 9 branch canals spread across Guntur and Prakasam districts. The month wise and branch wise discharge data and hydraulic particulars of main and branch canal was collected from Water Resources Department, Lingamguntla circle and Ongole circle. The daily rainfall data from 1997 to 2018 (22 years) obtained from the Directorate of Economics and Statistics (DES) was used for calculating annual availability of rainfall distribution over the command area. The total availability of the surface water of 11 years was is 2,229 MCM. Average annual rainfall of Guntur and Prakasam Districts under command area was noticed as 780  mm and 749 and overall command area was recorded as 765 mm. The average groundwater availability of the command area was estimated as 1385 MCM. Finally, conjunctive use of water in command area is 3,614 MCM (128 TMC).
