Chapter 11 of the project report online lists the environmental and ecological aspects of the project. The K-B link project comprises a storage reservoir on Ken river and a 232 km long link canal to transfer surplus waters from Ken to Betwa river. Out of the total submergence area of 8650 ha, 6400 ha is forest area. The region is covered by dense to moderate forests. The balance area of 2171 ha is cultivable area and an equivalent area of land has to be acquired for the displaced families.
