    The Central Water Commission (CWC) has recently ordered a collaborative investigation of the Polavaram backwaters in Telangana. This move comes after concerns were raised about the impact of the Polavaram dam project on the backwaters, which are an important source of water for irrigation and drinking purposes in the region.

    The Polavaram dam project is a multi-purpose project being constructed on the Godavari River in Andhra Pradesh. The project involves the construction of a dam, a spillway, a powerhouse, and a navigation lock. The dam is expected to provide irrigation water to about 7.2 lakh hectares of land in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, and also generate hydroelectric power.

    However, concerns have been raised about the impact of the project on the backwaters in Telangana. The backwaters are formed by the Godavari River and its tributaries, and are an important source of water for irrigation and drinking purposes in the region. The backwaters also support a rich ecosystem, with a variety of flora and fauna.
