The Krishna
Krishna
River is the fourth-biggest river in terms of water inflows and river basin area in India, after the Ganga, Godavari
Godavari
and Brahmaputra. The river is almost 1,300 kilometres (810 mi) long. The river is also called Krishnaveni. It is a major source of irrigation for Maharashtra, Karnataka, Telangana

in central India. It is one of the longest rivers in India. The Krishna river is around 1,300 km in length. The Krishna

Vijayawada
is the largest city on the River Krishna. It causes heavy soil erosion during the monsoon floods. It flows fast and furious, often reaching depths of over 75 feet (23 m). Ironically, there is a saying in Marathi: "Shant vaahate Krishnamaai" which means "quiet flows Krishna". This term is used to describe that a person should be as quiet as Krishna. Tributaries[edit]

The largest tributary of the Krishna
Krishna
River is the Tungabhadra
Tungabhadra
River with a drainage basin measuring 71,417 km2 (27,574 sq mi), running for about 531 km (330 mi), but the longest tributary is the Bhima River, which makes a total run of 861 km (535 mi) and has an equally large drainage area of 70,614 km2 (27,264 sq mi). There are four rivers that join the Krishna
Krishna
at a confluence known as Preeti Sangam, or "Lover's Meeting Point" in the Satara District. These are Venna River, Urmodi River, Tarli River and Koyna River. Three tributaries meet Krishna
Krishna
river near Sangli. These places are considered very holy. It is said that Lord Dattatreya spent some of his days at Audumber on the banks of river Krishna. Sangameswaram of Kurnool

Basin extends over an area of 258,948 km2 (99,980 sq mi) which is nearly 8% of the total geographical area of the country. This large basin lies in the states of Karnataka (113,271 km2), Telangana, Andhra Pradesh
Andhra Pradesh
(76,252 km2) and Maharashtra
Maharashtra
(69,425 km2).[6] The Krishna
Krishna
river rises in the Western Ghats, at an elevation of about 1,337 m (4,386 ft) just north of Mahabaleshwar, about 64 km (40 mi) from the Arabian Sea. It flows for about 1,400 km (870 mi) and outfalls into the Bay of Bengal. The principal tributaries joining Krishna
Krishna
are the Ghataprabha
Ghataprabha
River, Malaprabha River, Bhima River, Tungabhadra River
Tungabhadra River
and Musi River. Most of this basin comprises rolling and undulating country, except for the western border, which is formed by an unbroken line of the Western Ghats. The important soil types found in the basin are black soils, red soils, laterite and lateritic soils, alluvium, mixed soils, red and black soils and saline and alkaline soils. An average annual surface water potential of 78.1 km3 has been assessed in this basin. Out of this, 58.0 km3 is utilizable water.[7] Culturable area in the basin is about 203,000 km2 (78,000 sq mi), which is 10.4% of the total cultivable area of the country. As the water availability in the Krishna
Krishna
river was becoming inadequate to meet the water demand, Godavari
Godavari
River is linked to the Krishna
Krishna
river by commissioning the Polavaram right bank canal with the help of Pattiseema lift scheme in the year 2015 to augment water availability to the Prakasam Barrage

in Andhra Pradesh.[8] The irrigation canals of Prakasam Barrage

and Ramling temple near Sangli, Mallikarjuna temple (Srisailam), Amareshwara Swamy temple (Amaravati (state capital)), Dattadeva temple, Sangameshwara Shiva temples at Alampur in Telangana, Ramling temple, etc. as well as, villages such as Jihe. Flora and fauna[edit] See also: Wildlife sanctuaries of India, Tiger reserves of India, and List of national parks of India Wide spread area near to the Krishna
Krishna
river holds the rich flora and fauna. The last surviving Mangrove forests in the Krishna
Krishna
estuary have been declared as the Krishna
Krishna
Wildlife Sanctuary. The sanctuary is the home to the large number of resident and migratory birds. Fishing cat, otter, Estuarine crocodile, spotted deer, sambar, black buck, snake, lizards and jackal can also be spotted in the sanctuary. The sanctuary also supports rich vegetation with plants like Rhizophora, Avicennia, and Aegiceros. The following are few other wildlife sanctuaries located in the river basin.

Krishna
Bridge, Wai, Maharashtra
Maharashtra
– This bridge, which is located in the Dharmpuri Peth area of the town of Wai, is one of the oldest bridges that were built by the British in India. It spans the Krishna over nine kamans (arches) and is made of black rock. The bridge serves as a flood mark (when the water rises to the level of the road on the bridge) for the "Waikar" people. Irwin Bridge, Sangli
Sangli
– This is one of the oldest, historic and largest bridges over the Krishna

Floods[edit] In October 2009, heavy floods occurred, isolating 350 villages and leaving millions homeless,[9] which is believed to be first occurrence in 1000 years. The flood resulted in heavy damage to Kurnool, Mahabubnagar, Guntur, Krishna
Krishna
and Nalagonda Districts. The entire city of Kurnool
Kurnool
was immersed in approximately 10 ft (3 m) water for nearly 3 days.[10] Water inflow of 1,110,000 cu ft/s (31,000 m3/s) was recorded at the Prakasam Barriage, which surpassed the previous record of 1,080,000 cu ft/s (31,000 m3/s) recorded in the year 1903.[11] Interstate water sharing[edit] Main article: Krishna
Krishna
Water Disputes Tribunal At present, the award of Bachawat tribunal dated 31 May 1976 is applicable for sharing the water available in the river among the riparian states. The Brijesh Kumar tribunal award given on 29 November 2013 is challenged by Andhra Pradesh
Andhra Pradesh
in the Supreme Court and the case pending since then.[12] Newly created Telangana
Telangana
state also approached Supreme Court demanding a fresh tribunal hearing to secure its water needs on equitable basis.[13] Dams[edit]

Pollution[edit]

Most of the years, the river water is not joining the sea due to full utilisation of water mainly in agriculture.[16][17][18] The river receives the waste from the large number of cities and the river basin population has increased to 80 million enhancing pollution load many folds into the river. Adequate average and minimum continuous environmental flows to the sea are not taking place in most of the years constricting salt export and leading to formation of saline and sodic alkaline soils in the lower reaches of the river basin.[19][20] High alkalinity water is discharged from the ash dump areas of many coal fired power stations into the river which further increases the alkalinity of the river water whose water is naturally of high alkalinity since the river basin is draining vast area of basalt rock formations.[21] The following are the few coal fired power stations located in the river basin
