APMDC has installed high capacity pumping systems and constructed irrigation channels to re-use its mine bailed out water for irrigation purposes for the benefit of the local paddy farmers in Mangampet and surrounding villages. An area of about 500+ acres is being cultivated using bailed out water from the mine.

APMDC has also taken up the development of lakes near mining areas. This approach has reduced dependence of the local farmers on monsoons and has increased their farm productivity.
