Thousands of acres of agriculture on Wadi Wasti in many villages of Shirur and Srigonda talukas have come under irrigation.

In February itself, at the beginning of summer, all these dams were lying dry. By filling the dams with water, the water problem of the farmers will be solved. Farmers have expressed satisfaction as water will be available for crops in summer.
