IRRIGATION DHUBRI DIVISION (GAURIPUR)

  • Brief Overview:-   Agriculture is the backbone of Indian Economy. Around 60-70% of Indian population (directly or indirectly) depends upon agriculture for its livelihood. Irrigation helps to grow agricultural crops, maintain & re-vegetate disturbed soils in dry areas & during periods of less and average rainfall. Water is usually supplied as per requirement of different growing crops in the field. Irrigation works have been classified as major, medium and minor depending on their culturable command area. Major and medium Irrigation works are meant for tapping surface water (eg. Rivers) and minor Irrigation mainly involves ground water development eg. Tube-wells. Irrigation brings about an increase in the gross cropped area which in turn increases the net yield and also facilitates multiple cropping. 

    Irrigation potential in Dhubri District is developed both from surface and ground water sources. Currently the net Irrigated area under this Division is 4028 Hect. (approx.)      

    The present Office of the Executive Engineer, Dhubri Division (Irrigation) Gauripur, was established in the year 1974. The office was temporarily started in Rajbari, W/No. 2 Gauripur, later on the office was shifted at the present location in Gauripur, W/No. 2 near Kalibari. Sri Debananda Hazarika, is the present Executive Engineer of the office since 2016. The email id for communication is irrigeedhubri@gmail.com

    Under Dhubri Division (Irrigation) there are 26 no of schemes in operation. At present this Division is supplying water to 870 beneficiaries annually during two seasons (i.e rabi and Pre-Kharif And Kharif season).

    Under SOPD, one Solar powered Medium Deep Tube well Irrigation scheme has been sanctioned under this division at Golakganj under Agomani Sub-Division (Irrigation) Agomani. The work of this scheme has been successfully completed and currently supplying water to 10 Hect. cultivated fields.

    Shallow tube-well :

    It consists of a bore hole built into ground with the purpose of tapping ground water from porous zones. The tube wells are generally operated for 6 to 8 hours during irrigation season and give yield of 100-300 cubic meters per day.

    Deep tube wells:

    It usually extends to the depth of more than 70 meter and is designed to give a discharge of 100 to 200 cubic meters per hour. Their CCA may go up to 50 hectares.

    Solar MDTWS
