The AP government decided to establish connectivity between Nagavali and Champavathi rivers for providing drinking water to Vizianagaram municipality and adjoining villages. The civic body is facing a daunting task to supply drinking water to all divisions as the population has doubled with people migrating to Vizianagaram from towns and villages. The government sanctioned Rs 25 crore for releasing water from Nagavali to Champavathi through Thotapalli Barrage and Gadigedda reservoir. The linking of rivers will also recharge borewells as they will be useful in summer.
