14.  A Brief Note on Link canal connecting Chikkahole Reservoir Project to Suvarnavathi Reservoir Project:
The Suvarnavathy dam is located across Suvarnavathy river near Attigulipura in village, Chamarajanagar Taluk at a distance of about 3 KM away from the Chikkahole reservoir Project.  The inflow received at Suvarnavathy reservoir is much below the estimated yield at the time of project planning.  So it becomes necessary to augment  flows at Suvarnavathy by diverting excess flow available at Chikkahole to the Suvarnavathy Reservoir.  A link canal for a length of 2.8 KM with a capacity of 750 cusecs.   from Chikkahole reservoir to Suvarnavathy reservoir has been constructed.Tthe work was taken up during 1985 and completed in 1988.   The sanctioned cost of the project is Rs.59.5 lakhs.

            Hongalawadi is the only Anicut which has a permanent masonry weir structure with the canal on the left side,  The other river channels do not have any permanent structure but are only open cut channels whenever the water is allowed in the river for these river channels atchkatdars will make their own arrangement for drawls of water with temporary bunds.
