Bharuch pulls Narmada back to right bank
28 May 2009, 0432 hrs IST, Yogesh Pareek, TNN
BHARUCH: Bharuch town is not ready to end its old love affair with Narmada. It is trying to woo her back from the southern side of the riverbed to the north, on which the town is located.
The mighty river has meandered away from the town towards Ankleshwar side. A 4 km long canal is now being built to force the river to change its course and flow alongside Bharuch, just like it did till some 15 years back. Change was noticed after dams started coming up upstream.
Jivraj Patel, president, Bharuch Civil Engineers Forum, said Sardar Sarovar dam as well other smaller dams have reduced the flow of water which led to the Narmada veering away from Bharuch. The river has curved away towards its left bank, flowing in a width of around 500 meters this time of the summer, flooding only a third of the 1500 meter riverbed. Which means that the river is presently almost 1000 meters away from Bharuch.
In the process, the river has flooded hundreds of acres of farmland on the left bank and rendered it useless in villages of Sarfudin, Khalpia, Juna Khalpia, Pungam, Haripara, Sehra and Sajod of Ankleshwar and Hansot talukas.
Irrigation department and Bharuch municipality have joined hands to construct a canal two kms long. The work is on at full swing to complete the canal before the monsoon. While the river often flows bank-to-bank during the rains, officials hope that post monsoon the river will stay on the Bharuch side as the canal will provide the direction. “Once the river water starts flowing towards Bharuch, we plan to take up work for beautification of temples and the banks,” said Bharuch municipality president Marutisinh Atodariya.

• Kalpasar Lake just got smaller
7 Apr 2009, 0547 hrs IST, Rajiv Shah, TNN

GANDHINAGAR: The plan to create a massive sweet water reservoir in the sea, by cutting off the Gulf of Khambhat by a massive dam, has been scaled
down to increase its viability. The re-designed Kalpsar project will involve shifting the massive dam 15 km northwards.

The decision to redesign the dam has been taken by the Gujarat government following a positive report submitted by the National Institute of Oceanography (NIO), Goa, on Saturday. The new alignment of the dam — between Kalatalav village in Bhavnagar and Aladar village in Bharuch — will mean the length of the wall will be reduced from the proposed 64 km to 34 km.

The new plan has sounded the death knell for the proposed Dholera port project. However, according to officials, it will give a lease of life to Dahaj port and pave the way for building a new green-field port south of Bhavnagar.

Till now, the project entailed building a 64-km dam across the gulf, from Hansot in Bharuch to Ghogha in Bhavnagar. But the latest NIO study suggests a smaller reservoir — reduced from 2,200 sq km to 2,000 sq km, would be more viable.

Officials argued that the problem of less draft for building a port south of Bhavnagar would also get sorted out after Kalpsar is built. The government is in the process of identifying a new site for a port which will feed the Dholera special investment region (SIR). The SIR’s six-lane spine road will end at this port.

The dam itself will pass through a partially submerged island Mal Bet, situated in mid-sea. Mal Bet will also ensure that the dam’s foundations do not have to go too deep, thus reducing the costs.

The redesigned Kalpsar would cost around Rs 55,000 crore, recoverable by reclaiming and selling 2.2 lakh hectares, to be made available along the banks of the closed gulf after the dam keeps out the high tide.
