  1. 1. KALPASAR a multipurpose projectPresented by:1. Nikunjkumar Manubhai Chaudhary (4th SEM CIVIL, Student member of ASCE & I.S.T.E.).2. Farhan Rafikbhai Mansuri (4th SEM CIVIL, S.M.ASCE, M.I.S.T.E.). KALPASAR 1
  2. 2. • Why this project? Sources of waterDams on rivers did 185 rivers innot suffice waterrequirement due to Gujarat & onlypoor monsoon 8 are perennialUse ground water Narmadafor irrigation project& watersupply purpose KALPASAR 2
  3. 3. Watersupplied by Narmada CanalWaterwater storage in Gujarat:No of availability in Gujarat:Network: KALPASAR 3

  5. 5. CONCEPT OF KALPASARWhat does „Kalpasar‟ exactly mean ? Kalpasar means a lake that fulfills all the wishes. The word originating from Hindu mythological Kalpa Vriksha - wishing tree. This grand scheme called Kalpasar is conceived and developed by utilizing the concepts of two most successfully implemented projects in the world.

  6. 6. Similarities between Kalpasar project andDutch project: Kalpasar project Dutch project Narmada,mahi and sabarmati big Tributary of rhine bring water rivers bring water Distance between bhavnagar and Hurich of North Holland and bharuch reduce by 250 kms Den Oever of Friseland come closer by 200 kms. The estimated land reclamation is 165,000 hectares alredy 2,00,000 hectares reclaimed The lake will be of 2900 sq kms The lake is of 3200 sq kms KALPASAR 6

  10. 10. BENEFITS OF KALPASAR PROJECT:1. Water supply for domestic:  Kalpasar freshwater reservoir would provide 900 million m³ for domestic use.2. Irrigation from freshwater reservoir:  About 10.54 lakh hectares of land is going to irrigate and about 1,19,000 hectares of saline land is also KALPASAR 10

  13. 13. 7. Fisheries Development: It has been assessed that with aninvestment of Rs.1866.2 million and an annualrecurring cost of Rs.208.22 million,theadditional fish production of 9856 tonnes andadditional income of Rs.685.22 millionannually can be achieved. KALPASAR 13
  14. 14. 8. Waterborne transport development:  Inland navigation, along Narmada river from sea to Hoshangabad (in Madhya Pradesh) through Kalpasar Lake9.Navigation Port Development: Under the present conditions twoports are in use in the gulf ofkhambat area -The all weather directberthing port of bhavnagar. -The fair weather lighter ageport in Dahej.

  16. 16. CHALLENGES FACED BY PROJECT: Financial status :  The total investment goes up to 54000 crore rupees which involves about 37000 crore rupees for the dam construction and other ancillary expenses KALPASAR 16
  17. 17.  Technical complication: • Nature of rocks:  Nature of rocks surrounding the gulf coastline is quaternary in nature consisting of miliolites, alluvium soils and coastal deposits • Structural disposition:  Kalpasar project is situated on the intersection of the 400 km wide and 150 km long Cambay fault zone • Nature of surface:  Around the gulf is not only saline but it is extensively marshy in nature KALPASAR 17
  18. 18. CONCLUSION :- From the above data and studies it is quite evident that KALPASAR is “Big Beyond Limits” and involves a lot of ramification. This project will make Gujarat a DREAMLAND. If this project implemented with dedication and without corruption then it will give a massive benefits. Hence, this project is a innovative step towards the development of “New Gujarat” and should be taken for very specific and detailed considerations.
