The state government is planning for the Sunkishala Intake Project, and the foundation was laid by MA & UD minister KT Rama Rao on May 14, 2022. It is known that the urban population of Hyderabad has increased manifold and is likely to increase in the coming years. To avoid drinking water problems and long queues for water, the government has decided to go ahead with Sunkishala Project.


The project is expected to be completed by next summer and will solve the city's water problem under GHMC limits for the next 50 years. The present water requirement of Hyderabad in 2022 is 37 TMC which will go up to 70.97 TMC by 2072. The project will ensure that there will be adequate drinking water, even if the monsoons are not as per estimations for five years. Sunkishala will also be addressing industrial consumption in Hyderabad and its vicinities.


As of now, water is being pumped to the city by drawing water from Krishna, Godavari, Manjira, and Singur sources. Sunkishala is to have a permanent arrangement for the existing Krishna Drinking Water Supply Project Schemes of Phase I, II, and III. Supply schemes for Phase IV and V are now in progress.


While the water is now being drawn from the Alimineti Madhav Reddy Project irrigation canal, during emergencies, Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board installs emergency pumping systems at the foreshore of Nagarjuna Sagar to draw water below the minimum draw down the level of 510 feet.


The intake well and pumping station at Sunkisala will save Rs 5 to 6 crore for HMWSSB, which would otherwise be spent setting up motor pumps to draw Krishna water. Obviously, this means the Sunkishala project will do away with the need for emergency pump sets. The total length of the tunnel would be 650 meters running tunnel with eight diameter pipe. Of this, works of 320 meters have been completed. At the intake well, 12 pump sets would be kept running, and six pump sets would be kept as a stand-by. The intake well would spread in 125 acres.
