Abstract: Krishna river based dams are an important part of socio economic growth of Andhra Pradhesh. Nagarjuna sagar dam is one of them. Historically it has been providing unprecedented value to Andhra Pradesh. Analysis of this dam’s history like patterns of water inflow, outflow, capacity of dam at various times is performed here. This detailed analysis provides deeper insight for last fifteen year’s of dam data. Seasonal trends in data show how the water is used, and with what pattern dam inflow occurs. Also, auto correlation of various dam variables is calculated to improve forecasting models. Additionally, here data is cleaned, outliers are handled, and missing values are filled. This pretreatment of data leads to better analytical perspectives from data. Such analytical study is helpful in prediction of future trends related this reservoir.
