The Sri Rama Sagar Project also known as the Pochampadu Project is an Indian flood-flow project on the Godavari

River. The Project is located in Nizamabad district, 3 km away from National Highway 7. It has been described by The

Hindu as a "lifeline for a large part of Telangana".

Sriramsagar is an irrigation project across river Godavari in Telangana to serve irrigational needs in Karimnagar,

Warangal, Adilabad, Nalgonda, and Khammam districts. It also provides drinking water to Warangal city. There is a

hydroelectric plant working at the dam site.

The foundation was laid on 26 July 1963 by the late Jawaharlal Nehru, first Prime Minister of India.

Sriram Sagar Reservoir's capacity is 75 billion cubic feet, and it has 42 floodgates. It also includes Kakatiya Canal

covering 284 km, Laxmi Canal, Sarswati Canal, and Flood flow canal. Construction of this dam was started in 1957 and

is not yet completed.Most of the catchment area upstream of this dam is located in Maharashtra

This project is also locally known as Khustapuram dam. The Khustapuram project proposal was first

mooted/investigated by erstwhile Hyderabad state under Nizam rule to utilize 227 thousand million cubic feet (tmc) of

upper Godavari river water. This dam site is located in the Nizamabad district of Andhra Pradesh after the confluence of

Manjira river with Godavari. Under stage I of this project nearly 1 million acres (4,000 km2) irrigation facility is created to

utilize 140 tmc water. Stage II of this project is under advanced stage of construction to irrigate 440,000 acres (1,800

km2) using 25 tmc water. The flood flow canal project is also under implementation to irrigate 200,000 acres (810 km2)

using 20 tmc water available at Pochampadu dam site. The live storage capacity of SS dam is limited to 90 tmc to

reduce submergence area in Maharashtra up to FRL level 1,091 feet (333 m) above mean sea level as per the

agreement between Maharashtra & Andhra Pradesh. As of August 2013, the project has an estimated capacity of 80.66
