The Yettinahole Diversion Project aims to supply water to water-starved Kolar and Chikkaballapur in Karnataka. Diverting the Netravathi river for this purpose need not be the only solution.

In July 2012, the Government of Karnataka approved the Yettinahole Diversion Project (YDP), which will cost an estimated Rs. 12,912.36 crore. This project is set to divert the head waters of the Gundia River (a tributary of the Kumardhara, which is a tributary of the Netravathi) in the west and transfer it to eastern parts of the state.
