HYDERABAD: Very soon, people of the state will be in a position to know about the availability of water in all the 45,222 minor irrigation tanks at a click of a mouse by sitting in their houses. They will also be able to have information with regard to water levels in all the major and medium irrigation projects across the state, in a similar manner.

Irrigation department is making efforts to provide all such data on its website by linking various tanks and irrigation projects with remote sensing satellite. This is being done with the help of National Remote Sensing Centre. This was disclosed by irrigation minister T Harish Rao, during his marathon review meeting with the officials of his department, which went on till 1.00 am on early hours of Sunday from 2.30 pm on Saturday.

“The process of linking all the irrigation projects including minor irrigation tanks across the state with remote sensing satellite is going at a brisk pace,” the minister explained, during the meeting. According to Harish Rao, once the process of linking is completed, not only the irrigation officials but also the commoners can easily know about irrigation facilities in every nook and cranny of the state.
