Thank you sir for making me belive that I can do it.
A suggestion: kindly mention the topic being relevant for GS-1,2,3,4 that will make it more effective to segregate. some topics are interrelated too.

  4. OPED ow daums can control loods Rewriting history How dams can control floods There should be space for greater storage of water in reservoirs before the onset of monsoon S. UBHODEEP

  5. Various possible reasons for the tragedy ill-thought-out development plans rainfall was unprecedented Kochi airport was bound to flood given that it has been built on fields and wetlands adjacent to the Periyar river which swelled to dangerous levels during the floods The question is, how do we avoid or minimise destruction after such an event? UBHODEEP

  6. The purpose of dams Irrigation, power generation, and flood control. While the first two roles are acknowledged, the role of dams in flood control has always been underestimated flood control is completely ignored. Authorities always look to store the maximum amount of water in reservoirs during the monsoon season, which is then used for irrigation and generation of electricity during the summer months. It is an internationally accepted practice that the water level of a reservoir should be kept below a certain level before the onset of the monsoon season UBHODEEP

  7. it is unfortunate that the maximum amount of water is stored in reservoirs even before the close of the monsoon, only to ensure greater electricity generation and irrigation nae electicls ceneration Whatever be the extra quantity of electricity produced and area of land irrigated because of the risky storage of water in our dams, that cannot compensate for the loss of human lives, infrastructure and agricultural land. Space in reservoirs In view of all these problems and to ensure that the flood control purpose of dams is met, it is important that at least 30% of the storage capacity of dams be kept free before the monsoon. UBHODEEP

  8. While simultaneously allowing discharge of water, it is possible to increase storage slowly as the monsoon progresses Reduce overdependence oh hydropower, it is time to think of non conventional sources for electricity generation such as solar, wind and tidal power. It is also crucial to follow good reservoir water management policies. At present, the task of dam and water management is vested with the Public Works Department, the Electricity Board, and the Irrigation Department. Even in normal conditions, given contradictory opinions from various departments, it is difficult to implement decisions. UBHODEEP
