    Repair , Renovation and Restoration of water bodies


    GUIDELINES FOR REPAIR, RENOVATION AND RESTORATION
    OF WATER BODIES WITH DOMESTIC SUPPORT


    Government of India
    Ministry of Water Resources
    2009


    1. Introduction

    1.1 In India, tanks/ponds & lakes have traditionally played an important role in irrigation, drinking water supply, hydropower, ecology, tourism/culture and domestic use. Relative importance of some of these Water Bodies has waned due to a number of reasons such as shifting away from community based tank system to individual beneficiary oriented ground water dependent system, encroachments, silting, population pressure, multiplicity of agencies responsible for their upkeep, etc.

    1.2 A pilot scheme for “Repair, Renovation and Restoration (RRR) of Water Bodies directly linked to Agriculture” was launched in January 2005 for implementation during the remaining period of X Plan with an outlay of Rs.300 crores. The Scheme was sanctioned in respect of 1098 water bodies in 26 districts of 15 States with a target to create 0.78 lakh hectares of additional irrigation potential.

    1.3 Keeping in view the success of the pilot scheme for RRR of water bodies and need for a comprehensive programme to upscale the gains from water bodies, the Ministry has launched the scheme of Repair, Renovation and Restoration (RRR) of Water Bodies as a State Sector scheme with domestic budgetary support. The scheme will be applicable in whole of the country.

    Guidelines for repair, renovation and restoration
    of water bodies with domestic support

    2. Basic Features of the Scheme:

    2.1 Under the scheme, about one lakh water bodies having a Culturable Command Area (CCA) of 9 lakh ha. at a cost of Rs. 4,000 crore including central share of Rs.1250 crore would be covered. The main objectives of the scheme are:

    (i) Comprehensive improvement of selected tank systems including restoration.
    (ii) Improvement of catchment areas of tank.
    (iii) Community participation and self-supporting system for sustainable management for water bodies covered by the programme.
    (iv) Ground Water Recharge.
    (v) Capacity Building of communities, user groups standing committee for Panchayats and State Government/Central Government Agencies concerned with the planning, implementation and monitoring of the project.
    (vi) Increase in storage capacity of water bodies.
    (vii) Improvement in agriculture/horticulture productivity and increase in recharge of ground water in downstream areas of water bodies.
    (viii) Environmental benefits through improved water use efficiency;
    irrigation benefits through restoration of water bodies, supplementation of the groundwater use and promotion of conjunctive use of surface and ground water.
    (ix) Development of tourism, cultural activities, etc.
    (x) Increased availability of drinking water.

    2.2 The funding pattern for the scheme is given below:-

    (i) For Special Category States (North-Eastern States including Sikkim, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand and undivided Koraput, Bolangir and Kalahandi (KBK) districts of Orissa) as well as projects benefitting drought prone/tribal/naxal-affected areas, 90% of the project cost will be provided as Central Assistance (grant) by the Government of India and 10% of the cost by State Governments.

    (ii) For non-special category States 25% of the cost will be provided as Central Assistance (grant) by Government of India and 75% by State Governments.

    (iii) 10% of the project cost will be earmarked by the State Governments for capacity building, awareness and institutional strengthening.

    (iv) Out of the Central Plan, outlay of Rs. 1250 crore available for the scheme during the XI Plan, 5% of the central share shall be made for strengthening of implementation mechanism, concurrent evaluation and impact assessment to be carried out by the independent agencies identified by the Ministry of Water Resources and will be released on the recommendation of the Ministry.

    of water bodies with domestic support


    3. Planning of the projects under the scheme:

    The States may take up planning and implementation of projects under the scheme generally in the manner outlined below:

    3.1 Identification and selection of water bodies:

    (i) A project may be prepared with an individual water body or for a group of water bodies with sub-basin approach. All public and community owned water bodies may be covered under the project. All water bodies included in the project will be given a unique code number. States will accordingly undertake census of these water bodies and get complete list of water bodies along with unique code in the first stage.

    (ii) The States may take up the repair, renovation and restoration of water bodies having original irrigation culturable command area up to 2000 hectare or less, for drinking water, irrigation, pisciculture, tourism, ground water recharge or any other purposes.

    (iii) Private owned water bodies are not to be considered for funding under this scheme.

    3.2 Preparation of Detailed Project Reports (DPR):

    The DPR of a project has to include information on the following aspects:

    3.2.1 Details of present status of the water bodies (in use or partially used or not in use) with reasons for deterioration in condition and also its categorization in terms of location in (i) special category states/ Districts (North-Eastern States including Sikkim, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand and undivided Koraput, Bolangir and Kalahandi (KBK) districts of Orissa) (ii) drought prone, tribal and naxal-affected areas in non- special category states (iii) other areas not covered under category (i) and (ii).

    3.2.2 Rainfall during the last ten years, ground water level, land use pattern, soil characteristics, climate conditions, availability of water in the catchment area for channelization into water body, water quality situation in the water body and adjoining areas.

    3.2.3 Details of original CCA, present CCA and CCA planned in the DPR, original storage capacity/present storage capacity and storage capacity planned in the DPR, water quality situation in the water body and of ground water in adjoining areas with likely impact of the project on water quality of the water body and of the ground water.

    3.2.4 Scope of work –

    Scope of work in the DPR may include the following:-
    De-silting in terms of quantum of silt to be removed, repair of conveyance system, strengthening of bund(s), repair of weirs and sluices, catchment treatment, command area development, soil erosion prevention works, quality control measures. Maps of catchment and command areas are to be enclosed in the DPR.

    3.2.5 The scheme envisages capacity building of implementing agencies such as Ministry of Water Resources (MoWR) and its attached and subordinate offices, State Governments, District Implementing agencies, Water Users’ Associations (WUAs) and Panchayats.
    Accordingly, a capacity building programme aimed at sensitization of stakeholders, identification and selection of water bodies, preparation of Detailed Project Reports (DPRs), monitoring and evaluation is to be prepared and included in the DPRs.

    3.2.6 Plan for convergence with the efforts made under other programmes such as National Rural Employment Guarantee Programme (NREGP), watershed development programme and scheme of rural drinking water supply. The joint guidelines for convergence between NREGP and programmes of Ministry of Water Resources have already been issued in this regard. Detailed guidelines may be seen on Ministry’s website at http://mowr.gov.in or Ministry of Rural Development website at http://rural.nic.in.

    3.2.7 Plan for convergence with schemes of agriculture department aimed at generating additional irrigation potential and increasing water use efficiency; with schemes of ground water department and Central Ground Water Board (CGWB) aimed at ground water recharge and with schemes of Drinking Water Supply Department of the state aimed at sustainability of drinking water sources.

    3.2.8 Targetted benefits under the project will include creation of additional irrigation potential, Increase in
    agriculture/horticulture/pisciculture production and productivity, increase in recharge of ground water, improvement in water use efficiency, increase in availability of drinking water, impact on water quality, promotion of tourism and culture.

    3.2.9 Benefit Cost ratio (BC ratio) has to be minimum 1:1 in Special Category States, undivided KBK districts of Orissa, in drought prone, tribal and naxal-affected areas and 1.5:1 in other areas.

    3.2.10 Implementation schedule & corresponding requirement of funds; details of arrangement for monitoring & evaluation and of arrangement for use and maintenance of the restored water bodies.
