HYDERABAD: The telemetry controversy is past. Now, the Krishna River Management Board is mulling over using “Side Looking Doppler Sensor” system in canals and streams for effective measurement of Krishna water both by Telangana and AP.Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) chairman HK Sahu convened a meeting with the engineers of irrigation department of TS and Andhra at Jala Soudha on Thursday, and reviewed the progress of installation of telemetry system. 

At the meeting, the AP and TS officials locked horns over the water measurement by respective states. Telangana officials continued to raise objections over the non-installation of telemetry systems at Madakacherla near Pothireddypadu. Telangana also wanted the KRMB to account for the water usage released from Prakasam Barrage in Vijayawada.

The AP officials meanwhile wanted accounting for water used by Telangana in small streams and canals too. Thus, the Board chairman on Thursday proposed to fix Side Looking Doppler Sensors (SLDS) at all the canals in both Andhra and Telangana. As per Thursday’s discussion, SLDSs will be installed at three canals below Prakasam barrage in Vijayawada and Pothireddypadu canals in Andhra Pradesh.

Side Looking Doppler Sensor is a measurement system for continuous measurement of water velocity in streams, rivers and canals 
It employs acoustic doppler principle to reliably measure flow velocity in a variety of naturally occurring conditions
