Musi River Flows

The Musi River originates in the Anantagiri hills and flows into theOsmansagar and Himayatsagar reservoirs, it consists of 2 rivulets Esi(8 kms) and Musa (13 kms) which then converge into Musi River thus being the water sources for Hyderabad for over a century. The reservoirs were constructed in the Nizam’s reign after devastating floods in 1908. Land around the reservoirs is a Government protected conservation area.

The Musi then flows eastward through Hyderabad, bifurcating the urban agglomeration. The old city lies to the south of the river; while post-1960s urban development expanded to the north. Within Hyderabad, the Musi runs nearly dry. The loss of water is likely to be caused due to the impounding of river water in reservoirs and the degradation of catchment areas. Unchecked urban development and construction over natural rainwater channels and water tanks have disrupted the drainage patterns of the region. Untreated sewage as well as industrial effluents now flow into the river, which is severely polluted. Hyderabad’s major interstate bus terminus is located on a River island (see ‘Landmark Transformation’ site), on environmentally sensitive land. There are several slum settlements along the Musi Riverbanks. The riverbed is used in places by local communities for bathing, washing clothes, cultivation and grazing. Downstream from Hyderabad city, the Musi River has 24 diversion weirs for irrigation, locally known as kathwas. Irrigation and drinking water for villages downstream is heavily polluted with waste from the city
