Why in News

  • Recently, as per the instructions given by the Prime Minister, under the Amrit Mahotsav, for the first time in the country, the cleaning of dams will be done through machines.

Key Points

  • Significantly, there is a difference of opinion among experts regarding the desilting of dams in terms of its usefulness and economic affordability, due to which large dams become decades-old structures. In such a situation, this decision of cleaning the dams is very important.
  • This work of cleaning the dams will be started as a pilot project from Rani Avantibai Lodhi Sagar Project (Bargi Dam) built in Bargi tehsil of Madhya Pradesh. Hydrological pressurized system will be used for this work.
  • The Bargi Dam has been constructed on the Narmada River. Other dams built on the Narmada river, such as Maheshwar, Omkareshwar, Indira Sagar and Sardar Sarovar Dam will also benefit from its cleaning.
