Water falls under the state list and the advisory recommends states to use it for drinking purpose only till the dams are replenished. The CWC monitors water storage available in 91 major reservoirs across the country. According to the figures released on Thursday, the total water storage available was 35.99 billion cubic metres (BCM), which is 22 per cent of total storage capacity of these reservoirs. The total storage capacity of these 91 reservoirs is 161.993 BCM.

The situation seems to be grim in western and southern parts of the country. The western region includes Gujarat and Maharashtra. There are 27 reservoirs — 10 in Gujarat and 17 in Maharashtra having a total live storage capacity of 31.26 BCM — under the CWC monitoring The total live storage available in these reservoirs is 4.10 BCM until May 16, which is 13 per cent of total live storage capacity. The storage in 27 reservoirs of these two states during the corresponding period of last year was 18 per cent and average storage of last 10 years was 22 per cent. The situation in Marathwada is particulary critical where the water level in 45 major dams has hit an alarmingly low level. On Tuesday, Skymet, a private weather forecasting agency, said rainfall in Vidarbha, Marathwada, west Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat will be “poorer than normal”. The southern region includes states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

Greater Water Rights Needed Umatilla LRA Tells Army

first_imgThe latest obstacle in negotiations over the transfer of the former Umatilla Chemical Depot in northern Oregon is the question of how much of the site’s water rights will be handed over to the Columbia Development Authority.The LRA had hoped to receive about 50 percent of the site’s water capacity, but the Army has proposed allowing it to use only two wells, totaling about 25 percent of the site’s water capacity, reported the East Oregonian.“That is not going to get us where we want to be,” Greg Smith, the LRA’s executive director, said at meeting of the authority’s board. Smith recounted that he told the Army the offer of two wells would not be sufficient to justify accepting the site.The Army wants to retain some water rights for the 7,500-acre portion of the 20,000-acre facility slated to be turned over to the Oregon National Guard. Much of the remaining land will be designated a wildlife preserve, with only a small part dedicated to industrial and agricultural use.Smith also asked the board to consider applying to the state to designate as an enterprise zone portions of the site zoned for industrial use. Alternatively, an enterprise zone could be formed from existing ones in Umatilla County, Morrow County and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.Port of Morrow director Gary Neal favored gaining an enterprise zone designation since other locations in the state most likely would offer similar tax breaks. “I think if you’re not going to have one, you’re not going to be in the game,” he said.The meeting also marked a shift of the administrative functions of the LRA falling under the Port of Morrow to Umatilla County. The change was made in recognition that 80 percent of economic development on the depot land is expected to take place in Umatilla, according to the story. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more
