Girna Dam, Maharashtra
The Girna Dam is constructed on the Girna River, flowing across the Nasik district of Maharashtra.
 
 Girna Dam, MaharashtraThe Girna Dam is situated in the Nasik district, which is drained by two chief rivers, the Girna and the Godavari along with their tributaries. The Girna Dam is located in the watershed of the Girna River. The Satmala range divides the catchment area of these two rivers. A number of small Konkan Rivers draining westwards into the Arabian Sea also flows very close to the Girna Dam.

The Girna Dam is sited south of Cherai village. The river Girna flows towards the east along a wide bed and high banks in certain parts, however, low enough to admit the use of water for irrigation. The main objective to build the Girna Dam is to collect the water of the river for irrigation purpose, especially in the rainy season.
