Scheme :: Construction of CHECK Dams (In-Stream Storage structure)

Introduction to the scheme

Government of Odisha launched the scheme in 2010-11 to construct Check dams/In-stream storage structures in small rivers, streams and anicuts in major rivers and streams to utilize a part of surface runoff flowing down the sea. The objective is to conserve water at end of monsoon to meet following requirements.

  • to provide drinking water facilities in the villages along both the sides of river after monsoon period.
  • to provide incidental irrigation to crops during late khariff and rabi by storing water at the end of monsoon, mainly through lifting devices. 
  • Irrigation use of water flowing down drainage channels.
  • to divert water from perennial / semi-perennial streams in hilly areas for irrigation purpose.
  • to recharge ground water.
  • Other uses by villagers like bathing, washing, fishing, recreation etc. depending on location and potentiality.

To involve beneficiaries during execution of the project, Pani Panchayat (WUAs) would be formed during the process of selection of site for a check dam. The infrastructure, once completed in all respect, would be handed over to Pani Panchayats for operation and maintenance. However, technical assistance required for operation and maintenance would be extended free of cost by the department. 

 
Site selection priorities

go to Top

  • in blocks having less than 35% irrigation coverage.

  • where people are using traditional method of irrigation by constructing temporary cross bunds on streams.

  • where the beneficiaries are willing to take up operation and maintenance of the structure.

  • where the newly constructed structure does not have any adverse impact on the hydrological efficacy of the existing, ongoing and proposed major, medium and minor (flow) irrigation and minor (lift) irrigation projects.

  • In-stream storage will be developed near urban centers, if suitable rivers and locations available for multipurpose domestic and irrigation use.
