Irrigation projects in Koppal

The left bank canal of the Tungabhadra reservoir passes through Koppal and Gangavathi taluks before reaching Raichur district. This left bank canal irrigates 54,490 hectares of land. The main crops that the Koppal district grows are paddy, cotton and sugarcane.

Another important irrigation project in the region is the Hirehalla project. A 15 metre tall dam has been constructed across Hirehalla. The water storage capacity of the dam is 1.69 TMC. As many as 1.34 TMCs have been used to irrigate 20,575 acres of land. Because the project is progressing at a snail’s pace, only half of the intended area to be irrigated has received water from the project
