Development programme to
harness the available irrigation potential and also to increase the
power resources were undertaken by the state of Maharashtra , India
on a larger scale after independence by construction of dams and
hydro power projects. To cope up with the need of providing designs
of earth and gravity dams. Central Designs Organisation (C.D.O) was
established in 1957 by the state.
The CDO at that time
had to start from scratch, but because of continuing efforts of the
Engineers working in the CDO, the Organisation is now recognised
nationwide as a pioneer Design Organisation in the field of Dam
Design. Organisation was strengthened for undertaking design of
Hydro Electric Projects. It has now established its own design
practices from the experience gained from the designs prepared and
executed for last 43 years which has stood the test of the time and
which are commensurate with the relevant BIS Code and USBR
CDO is located at Nashik
a central place connected with rail and road. It has its own
building and residential quarters for the staff. The pioneer
research institute of the state, Maharashtra Engineering Research
Institute (MERI) is located in the same premises, which is
complementary for the Design.
