Halsur Diversion Weir


     Shiggaon Lift Irrigation Scheme(SLIS) is envisaged by Karnataka Neeravari Nigam to irrigate in Shiggaon, Savanur taluk etc., by sprinkler irrigation.  The flow of water in the Varada river is not adequate to irrigate for the rabi crops in the command area of the SLIS.  Hence, Karnataka Neeravari Nigam has entrusted the work of Study on storage of water in Varada River for rabi crop, detailed design for the Diversion Weir and preparation of Bid Documents for civil and Hydro Mechanical works of the Diversion Weir to Design Group Project Consultants Private Ltd. The location of the Diversion Weir across river Varada is on downstream of the confluence of the river Varada and river Dharma near Halasur village in Savanur Taluk of Haveri district about 900m downstream of the existing Naganur (Kudla) Diversion Weir. The work has been completed by Design Group to the satisfaction of the Karnataka Neeravari Nigam.
