Tillari Dam, Dodamarg

The Tillari Irrigation Project is an inter-state project of Maharashtra and Goa States to utilise water of river Tillari. Tillari river is a west flowing river originating from Sahyadri mountain in Chandgad taluka of Kolhapur district of Maharashtra, crosses Maharashtra State near village Maneri to enter Goa State, where it is popularly known as Chapora, before falling into the Arabian Sea.

Tillari Irrigation Project envisages construction of a storage dam across river Tillari near village Tillariwadi (Sindhudurg district, Maharashtra) and a pick-up weir across Kharari nalla, a right bank tributary of river Tillari, near village Terwanmedhe (Sindhudurg district, Maharashtra) along with canal systems to provide irrigation facilities in 21,197 ha of command (6,676 ha (ICA) in Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra and 14,521 ha (ICA) in North Goa district of Goa). Besides irrigation, the project would provide 111.465 MCM of water for municipal and industrial uses in the State of Goa. In addition, two hydro power stations, one with 10 MW (2x5MW) installed capacity on the left side of the saddle dam and another with 0.2 MW installed capacity at head of the Right Bank Canal are also proposed. However, the power house of 10 MW capacity is a part of a separate project called Konal Hydro Electric Project.
