Farmers demand water in return for land in Yettinahole river diversion project

Updated : November 05, 2019 05:50 PM IST

Yettinahole River Diversion project aims to divert water from four perennial streams of River Nethravati in the Western Ghats of Karnataka towards drought-hit districts in Karnataka.
Having cleared legal hurdles, the politically-sensitive project is now seeing increasing demands for water from farmers in non-beneficiary areas, whose lands are being acquired.
Researchers and environmentalists fear large-scale destruction of forests, fisheries, bio-diversity and warn of cost escalation and lower-than-expected water yield.
