Godavari waters that were released through the Pattiseema irrigation project had entered Krishna district, at Pallerlamudi, at 8.30 pm. They will join Krishna river at Ibrahimpatnam today. The Krishna district farmers welcomed the entering of the waters with ritualistic worship. Pattiseema lift irrigation project is a part of the Polavaram project. As the construction of the latter will be delayed, the idea of lifting Godavari river waters and sending them to Krishna river, to fill Srisailam Reservoir through Prakasam barrage, was formulated by AP government, that is proving successful.
