Officials of Srisailam Dam, on Thursday, said that they were forced to discharge water as the reservoir was receiving massive inflows.

According to irrigation sources, the officials lifted 6 flood gates to discharge 2,08,608 cusecs of water.

The water level at Srisailam reservoir reached 882.50 ft, as against the full reservoir capacity of 885 ft. The inflow in the dam is 3,24,875 cusecs, and the outflow is 2,85,418 cusecs.

The officials also discharged 73,000 cusecs of water from the left and right canals, to generate hydel power, according to sources.

Inflows into the Srisailam dam have increased due to the heavy rain in the upper catchment areas of the river Tungabhadra. The rainfall in the catchment areas in Karnataka is leading to heavy inflows in all reservoirs in the state, which are in spate.

Officials lifted 3 flood gates to discharge 48,000 cusecs of water of the Nizam Sagar project, as the water level touched the 523.60 ft mark.

The water in Sriramsagar touched 1086.60 ft. The inflow of water there is 6930 cusecs and the outflow 17,450 cusecs.

According to officials, reservoir levels with reference to gross capacity at different dams are as follows: Tungabhadra - 100%, Srisailam – 94.5%, Singur 88.8%, Jurala- 78.6%, Sri Ram Sagar Project – 79.7% and Nagarjuna Sagar - 73%.

Met officials attributed the heavy rain to a low pressure area over the West-Central Bay of Bengal and adjoining coastal Andhra Pradesh.

Vulnerable areas in Kurnool and Mahabubnagar districts have been placed on alert as the flood-gates of Tungabhadra dam at Hospet have been opened.

The irrigation officials asked district authorities to evacuate people from low-lying areas well in advance and take all precautionary measures to prevent loss of life or property.

The IMD has forecast heavy rains for 2 more days in coastal Andhra, and parts of Telangana and Rayalaseema, due to the low pressure area in Bay of Bengal.
