The Kadam Dam or The Kadam Reservoir Project was built over the Kadam River in the Adilabad district of Telangana. The dam was constructed in Peddur village where the holy Godavari River merges with the Kadam River. However, this project was mainly built to support the irrigation in Adilabad for Mandals, and the dam was built between 1949-1964.
The main purpose of this dam was to irrigate about 25000 hectares in the Adilabad district. But currently, the dam is developed to irrigate around 68000 hectares. The Kadam dam is reinforced by the Sriram Sagar Project and the Saraswati Canal to stabilize and regulate irrigation.
