The term “Environmental Impact Assessment” (EIA) describes a method and a procedure by which information about the environmental effects of a project is collected by the developer, both as new data and from other resources. EIA can therefore be ready to lend a hand to all those concerned with major projects. It needs to be undertaken for “relevant projects” under the Water Resources. It is a water management project for agriculture, including an irrigation project; EIA is more likely to be required if the project would result in unfavourable effects on the water environment, and where the sustainability of the project is in uncertainty. This may be determined by measuring whether the project would have damaging wider impacts on the hydrology of the area and adjoining ecosystems. EIA will not normally be required for small-scale or routine water management projects undertaken by farmers. Hence a study was conducted to understand environmental impact of tank rehabilitation. The results envisage that rejuvenation of irrigation storage structure elucidates a sustainable environmental development in local area.
