A barrage project has been proposed by Odisha State government across river Ib, downstream of the confluence of rivers Basundhara and Ib, near village Deogaon of Jharsuguda district, Odisha, India. The major objectives of the proposed project are to provide water for irrigation for approximately 800 ha, drinking water to three urban bodies, i.e., Jharsuguda, Brajrajnagar and Belpahar, and water for various industries in Jharsuguda and its periphery. Like all water resources projects, this project also has wide-ranging impacts on the environment. The government-sponsored Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) based on conventional ground-based methods is still in progress since 2005. The objective of this study was to conduct a rapid EIA using remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) to demonstrate the utility of these tools in providing high-quality survey results which is not possible with conventional groundbased methods. Satellite data have been used as input parameters for demarcation of water spread and computation of barrage storage capacity, and land-use/land-cover assessment for various heights of the barrage.
