The tributaries of River Godavari are responsible for the supply of water in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Chattisgrah.
Some of the tributaries of River Godavari are the following
The Indravati River is a tributary of the Godavari River, located in central India. The river rises in the Eastern Ghats in Orissa and flows westwards to join the Godavari, thus forming the boundary between Maharashtra and Chhatisgarh states at some places. Most of the River Course of Indravati is through dense forests of Bastar.
Pranhita River flows on the edge of Gadchiroli district in Maharashtra and Adilabad district in Andhra Pradesh. The name Pranhita is derived from the nature of combined flow of the rivers Painganga and Wainganga. The Painganga River joins Vainganga near Aheri. The river then flows up to Sironcha. The river finally empties into the Godavari River, near Sironcha in Maharashtra.
The Wainganga river of India originates about 12 Km from Mundara village of Seoni district in the southern slopes of the Satpura Range of Madhya Pradesh, and flows south through Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra in a very meandering course of roughly 360 miles. After joining the Wardha, the united stream was called the Pranahita, finally empties into the River Godavari. The river has urbanized extensive flood plains with sweeping graceful meanders and low alluvial flats and meander terraces.
The Wardha River is the distributary of Godavari, a significant tributary of Pranhita River.The Wardha River is considered to be one of the biggest rivers in Vidarbha region in India, and its starting spot is the Satpura Range near Multai in Madhya Pradesh. The river is a tributary of the Pranhita River, which finally flows into the Godavari River. Vena River, Bembala and Penganga River are the main tributaries of Wardha River.
Manjira River is a tributary of Godavari River and a significant river in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Nizam Sagar Dam was constructed across the Manjira River between Achampet and Banjapalle villages of the Nizamabad district in Andhra Pradesh. The most exceptional feature of the project is the huge stonework dam sprawling across the river for an extensive length of 3 kilometers with a motorable road of 14 feet breadth.
The Kinnerasani River is one of the important tributaries of Godavari. The scenic beauty of the course along Kinnerasani River is eye catching and panoramic. Moreover the Kinnerasani Dam is very beautiful with surrounded by greenery and natural landscape. Glasses Rest House constructed by Singareni Collieries at Kinnerasani has improved the spot as a tourism place. The Kinnerasani project is located at Yanambile among charming surroundings. The dam provides water to KTPS at Palvoncha for power generation and also for irrigation facilities to the nearby farmers through lift irrigation.
