Balimela Reservoir

  • The Balimela Reservoir is on the river Sileru which is situated in the Maikangiri District of Odisha State.
    • The Sileru (also known as the Machkund River) rises in the Eastern Ghats in Andhra Pradesh state and flows northward into Jalaput Reservoir on the border with Odisha state.
    • The Sileru empties into the Sabari River in Chhattisgarh. Sabari river is a tributary of Godavari.
  • The capacity of the Reservoir is 94,500 mcft. From this reservoir, 50% of water is diverted through a tunnel to Balimela Power House and the other 50% is let off in the river for utilization by Andhra Pradesh.
