NASEER AHMAD

Srinagar, Apr 26: The Upper Sindh hydel project has started partial generation after an approval by the Central Water Commission, senior officials here said. The 105 MW project is presently generating 80 MW of power. The two canals and spill way of the project were damaged last year making it defunct.
 The Jammu and Kashmir State Power Development Corporation after proper geological survey had sent the proposal for reconstruction of the spill way and Sumbal water link to Central Water Commission.
 The Upper Sindh having capacity of 105 MW was commissioned in 1974. The length of its water conductor is 11 kms and design discharge capacity is 425 cusecs. The project has two water links- Wangat and Sumbal.
 After the approval of the Commission, the reconstruction work on the Sumbal link and spill way started. It took Rs 3.50 crores to complete the work.
 However, it took the JKSPDC two months to get approval from CWC to start the project.
 The CWC is a premier technical organization in the field of water resources and is presently functioning under the Ministry of Water Resources, Government of India. The Commission is entrusted with responsibilities of initiating, coordinating and furthering in consultation with the State Governments concerned, schemes for control, conservation and utilization of water resources throughout the country for purpose of Flood Control, Irrigation, Navigation, Drinking Water Supply and Water Power Development. It also undertakes the investigations, construction and execution of any such schemes as required.
 The Chief Engineer Generation, C. Dorje, said the work on Sumbal link has been completed and presently the project was generating 80 MWs of power. Dorjee said the work on Wangat Link will be started after the approval of CWC. “We have mooted proposal to CWC about reconstruction of Wangat link and after proper approval we will start the work,” he said.
