Krishna River is an important part of the country even though it may not be seen so. It is useful for various activities that are performed by us. Over 75% of the area near the river is used for agricultural purposes. The Krishna river combined with the Ganga basin supports more than 10 million people. This river also forms reservoirs and supplies hydroelectric power form it's dams, some of them are Nagarjuna-Sagar, Srisailam,Tungabhadra and the prakasam barrage..It also contains cultural significance and attracts tourism throughout India. The area near the river is rich in flora and fauna.The last surviving mangrove forests in the estuary have been made the Krishna wildlife sanctuary. It is also home to various animals like crocodiles,spotted deer,black bucks, jackals and migratory birds. But now the river is being depleted. Even though the river has the largest storage capacity in the country (32.831 billion cubic metres) only 4.47 percent of the water is  available. As a citizen of India I can say that this effects all of India as this rover is not only a big part of our economy, it is also a part of our country. The river can be replenished only by properly managing the distribution of water in the dams and doing our best to stop floods and droughts.
