About Ukai Dam

The Ukai Dam is built across the River Tapti and happens to be the largest reservoir dam in Gujarat. This dam is also referred to as Vallabh Sagar. It was constructed in the year 1972 and is meant for power generation, irrigation and flood control. The dam has a catchment area that spans over 62,255 square kilo meters. Further, the water spread of the dam is somewhere close to 52,000 hectares which is equivalent to the capacity of the Bhakra Nangal Dam. Situated about 94 km from Surat, Ukai Dam has a storage capacity that is about 46% of the total capacity of the other water dams of Gujarat collectively. So it can be said that the other dams of Gujarat have as little as 0.1% of the average storage capacity when compared to the Ukai Dam.
