The Guest of Honor Sri R. Vidyasagar Rao Garu has delivered the key note address.
He mentioned that water is useful for all living organism 1400 cubic km water is available 97.5% of water lies in ocean. Only 2.5% also only 0.3% is available for utilization. The population of the world is increasing where as the availability of the water remains the same. He mentioned that population was 10 crores in 1804. 20 crores in1927. Presently 10 crores of population is increasing by 13 to 14 years. Action is needed to improve water research planning and needs. At each level there are a variety of issues that require water Co-operation. Dealing with increasing water scarcity water abstraction and decision on water allocation dam construction often require water Co-operation. The problem can be solved by persuasion. Agriculture is predominant in water use and consequently management strategies to improve water use efficiency especially irrigated lands will require specific attention. Upstream users who control sources can significantly impact the quantity and theme of water to downstream users (Eg. The Nile Sudan and Egypt).
In India the annual per capita availability of water was 5177m3, in the year 1951 reduced to 1342m3 by the year 2025 India is going the "Water Stressed" and water scared by the year 2050.
Krishna River which runs 404 km in Maharashtra 480 km through Karnataka and 1300 km in A.P. has been a major source of controversy our constitution makers anticipating such situation have provided ample power to the Union to enable it to deal with them. Article 262 of constitution of India has provided such power.
The new Telangana State comprising the areas of Telangana in erstwhile Hyderabad would be founded as a separate state. This new state will have 10 districts. Since seemandhra politicizing who oppose Telangana state expressed concerns that river water disputes will arise with the formation of Telangana State.
According to bacchawat award the total allocation of water to united A.P is a 201 Tmc ft from the rivers of Krishna and Godavari with 75% of dependable yield. Krishna contribution 811 Tmc while 1,480 tuctt comes from Godavari.
Experts are of the opinion that water sharing with new state Telangana would not be as big a problem as being projected since the water had been already allocated for the projects falling in both Telangana and seemandhra.
The function concluded with the vote of thanks proposed by Mr. R.K. Pavan Kumar Asst. Prof., University Library
