DWMA :Protection of Lakes,Tanks through Plantation on Bunds

DWMA

In order to protect the Government lands from encroachments a special initiative has been taken in the District. As part of it around 80 Tanks were selected for peripheral plantation in the Cheruvu shikham to protect the Cheruvu Shikham lands from the encroachments. Out of these selected Tanks 17,961 plants (eucalyptus, Pongamia, Survi, Thumma) were planted in Shikham areas of 49 tanks covering 1500 Acres. The maintenance of the plants has been entrusted to the SSS Group members for their protection. The remaining tanks are found not feasible presently since they are with full of water.
