Dam
A dam is a barrier that stops or restricts the flow of water or underground streams. Reservoirs created by dams not only suppress floods but also provide water for activities such as irrigation, human consumption, industrial use, aquaculture, and navigability. Hydropower is often used in conjunction with dams to generate electricity. A dam can also be used to collect water or for storage of water which can be evenly distributed between locations. Dams generally serve the primary purpose of retaining water, while other structures such as floodgates or levees (also known as dikes) are used to manage or prevent water flow into specific land regions. The word dam can be traced back to Middle English,[1] and before that, from Middle Dutch, as seen in the names of many old cities.[2] The first known appearance of dam occurs in 1165. However, there is one village, Obdam, that is already mentioned in 1120

The Project provides irrigation to 1,20,000 acres in Srikakulam and Vizianagaram districts.[1] In 1908, the old Thotapalli regulator was constructed across the Nagavali River with a 64,000 acres irrigation potential. The regulator was replaced by the current barrage which has a 2.51 Tmcft storage capacity and an additional 56,000 acres irrigation potential.[2][3] See also[edit]List of dams and reservoirs in India Andhra PradeshReferences[edit]^ "India: National Register of Large Dams 2009".

Gundlakamma River
The Gundlakamma (Telugu: గుండ్లకమ్మ నది) is a seasonal river that flows through the east central part of the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. It arises in the Nallamalla Hills, an offshoot of the Eastern Ghats. Its main headwaters lie some 6 kilometers from the village of Ardhaveedu, Prakasam District at an altitude of 425 m. above MSL.[1] Numerous mountain streams join it as it descends down the thickly forested hills through a series of curves and tight bends. It follows a north-easterly direction and enters the plains near Cumbum, after flowing through a town named after it. Gundlakamma is the largest of all the rivers that originate from the Nallamalla Hills. A 15th-century dam built by the Gajapati kings[2] straddles the river on its entry into the plains. It is an earthen dam that plugs the river flows through

Ranganadi Dam
The Ranganadi Dam is a concrete-gravity diversion dam on the Ranganadi River in Arunachal Pradesh, India which serves a run-of-the-river scheme. The dam is intended for hydroelectric purposes and is part of Stage I of the Ranganadi Hydro Electric Project and supports the 405-megawatt (543,000 hp) Dikrong Power House. The 68 m (223 ft) tall dam diverts water south into a 10.1 km (6.3 mi) headrace tunnel which is then transferred into a 1,062 m (3,484 ft) penstock before reaching the three 135 megawatts (181,000 hp) turbines.[1] Since commissioning, the power house has been generating much less than its capacity because of drought.[2] Stage II of the project is designed to provide water storage for Stage I and includes a 134 m (440 ft) rock-fill embankment dam with a 523,000,000 m3 (1.85×1010 cu ft) storage capacity
