Disneyland at Harangi, Kabini, Hemavathy dams

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy has said that all the four reservoirs in Mysuru region - Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) in Mandya district, Kabini in Mysuru, Harangi in Kodagu and Hemavathy dam in Hassan district - will be developed on the lines of Disneyland.

Speaking to reporters here on Friday, the chief minister said that these dams would be developed in two phases in private-public participation. In the first phase, the KRS dam would be developed at a cost of Rs 1,060 crore. The other three dams would be developed in the second phase, he said.

4-year long project

“While the first phase of works will be completed by 2020, the second phase will be completed by 2022. The private parties will maintain the project for 25 years and transfer it to the government later.

“The project, after implementation, will provide job opportunities for 50,000 youth and fetch a revenue of around Rs 400 crore to the government.

“The tourism industry will also get a boost,” he said. Replying to a question, the chief minister said that the work would not affect KRS dam as was being claimed by some “vested interests.”
