District Solapur Bend Odha

Vithalganga / Bend Nala Rejuvenation

Solapur’s MADHA block had faced severe droughts in 2013-14 and 2015-16. The surface water disappeared, as all rivers, canals, ponds and nalas dried up. The ground water had been over-exploited to the point that it didn’t make economic sense to dig bore wells.

The Bend nala had a watershed area of approx. 20,000 Ha geographically; its length spanned 34,000 m, touching 13 villages. Around 60 small and big check dams stretched across this nala, needed minor repairs and desilting to improve water storage.

At the request of the 13 villages in the catchment, NAAM took the initiative to rejuvenate the watersheds of this area. Work was initiated during April 2018. This project is the longest water conservation project in Maharashtra with total length of 34 km.
