TN Misled on Kavery was getting 411 TMC to get 177 TMC

May20, 2018 (C) Ravinder Singh progressindia2015@gmail.com

TN was misled by Dubious Lawyers in to going to Supreme Court in 2002 when average releases at Billigundlu were 289 TMC in previous 10 years.

[I read an article in Frontline Magazine – found Karnataka to be unjustly hauled to the Supreme Court wanted to help Karnataka – met CM and Cabinet Ministers]

Some minor rivers of Karnataka between Billigundlu and Metur Dam gates also contributed 122 TMC of Water.

So average releases at Metur Dam was 411 TMC of Water before 2002 dispute. CWDT had prescribed just 205 TMC of Water releases, SC 177.25 TMC in 2018.

Post Tribunal Award and latest Supreme Court order – Karnataka is Directed to release only 177.25 TMC of water in to TN region of Cauvery Basin. Actually Tribunal & Supreme Court had fixed normal Consumption Limits by each party state.

In 2001-02 in Low Rainfall year yield was slightly less than prescribed – 189.90 or Short by just 15 TMC – TN went to Apex Court when Excess Releases were 845 TMC in past 10 years.

Tech Arbitration & Cooperation for Optimum Water Use

TN & Karnataka should Co-operate to OPTIMIZE Water Use – 1. Introduce Short Duration HY Paddy, 2. Build Canals and Pipelines for Irrigation & Urban Water Supply, 3. Build additional Storage Dams to Capture Floods, 4. Dismantle Check Dams & Inefficient Storages, 5. Recycle Waste Water. 6. Regulate Water Releases linked to Weather Forecast. 7. 24 hour Water Information System, >>

 

30% Water Saving or 50% More Water Usage Possible Through Cooperation & Engineering – TN & Karnataka has resources to do it.
