Irrigation

Public Works Department is one of the oldest Service Departments of the Government, serving in the construction field and maintenance of Irrigation Structures for the past 153 years. Many dams stand as a testimony to our engineering skill. The organization marches towards better service delivery to the people by adopting to the present day trend of e-governance. The concept of artificial recharge, better water management, restoration of water bodies, water users participation in the projects to derive maximum benefit is well understood. The department is working very hard to realise maximum irrigation efficiency. The necessity for intra-linking of rivers for diversion of flood water and enhancing the storage capacity of water bodies to provide adequate water for irrigation, drinking and other purposes have been well taken. The Department is taking all efforts for better service delivery with this long term vision.
