new amaravati krishan barrage between Vaikunthapuram and damaluruAndhra Jyothy reports that another new barrage on Krishna is proposed in the capital city master plan to service the drinking water requirements of Amaravati. This new barrage is likely to come up between Vaikunthapuram and Damaluru. This barrage will also help in holding water all round the year between Vikunthapuram and Prakasam barrage so that Amaravati can live up to the dream of being a “water front capital”.

The barrage and its consequent benefits will also help in developing water sports and river tourism, which the state government thinks will be a major attraction for the new capital city.
