The state government is checking the feasibility for establishing water sports facility in this region. Pedacheruvu, Tajani and Ravanapalli are the three locations that have been identified in the agency. A team of officials from the departments of tourism and irrigation recently visited these spots to give a report to the government.
An official from the tourism department said that they have identified a few locations having different features. Some will have 365 days of water, others have vacant space for parking and cafeteria but the availability of water is for a limited period.
All the identified locations are owned by the Irrigation department. Local fisheries societies cultivate fish in the ponds. Two locations among those three are close to Lammasingi, also known as Andhra Pradesh’s Kashmir.
Senior officers of the irrigation and tourism departments have visited the three locations in Vizag. The government is keen towards setting up water sports facilities in the state and has identified Visakhapatnam, the busiest tourism hotspot in the state for that purpose. According to the tourist official final decision on the project is likely to be taken in a month or two.
