Kalpasar Project – Wikipedia
The Kalpasar Project envisages building a 30 km dam across the Gulf of Khambat in India for establishing a huge fresh water coastal reservoir for irrigationdrinking and industrial purposes.
Spending began in earnest inbut no work has started amid questions about feasibility. Eric Wilson in the year Successive governments were then presented in details the possibility of a project, aptly named Kalpasar Project by its visionary Dr.
Anil Kane, who conceptualised it in 80s as a feasible project. In a reconnaissance report was prepared for the dam across the Gulf of Khambhat.
The report concluded that, assuming sound foundation conditions, the closure of the Gulf was technically feasible. It is reported that the project may take 20 years to complete if found feasible and approved. Kalpasar aims at the creation of kakpasar fresh water coastal reservoir in the Gulf of Khambhat by the construction of a dam connecting the east and west bank of the Gulf.
In the reservoir the runoff from SabarmatiMahiDhadar and Narmada will be stored, together with the waters from ,alpasar Saurashtra rivers discharging into the Gulf of Khambhat. The stored waters are to be used for irrigation, domestic and industrial water requirements in the Saurashtra region. Once the Gulf is closed, water levels within the reservoir can be controlled while the tidal fluctuation outside the reservoir continues and, hence, can be harnessed for the generation of tidal energy.
In addition to fresh water storage and tidal power generation, Kalpasar also aims kalpqsar land reclamation, transportation improvements and fisheries development.
In accordance with this project, a mega fresh water reservoir will be constructed on the upstream side of the dam by impounding the surplus waters of numerous rivers. This project, will resolve four vital problems of the State of Gujarat which are water, electrical power, road-rail transport and development of ports.
