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 provisions.
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.
