As water level swells, Srisailam dam floodgates opened today

Hyderabad: With Srisailam dam level reaching close to its gross storage capacity, the project authorities in Andhra Pradesh have opened the floodgates on Thursday to let out around one lakh cusecs of water to Nagarjunasagar Dam.

Telangana and Andhra Pradesh have been releasing water downstream through the power generating stations.

On Wednesday night, water stood at 884.40 feet at Srisailam, against the full reservoir level of 885 feet. Inflows into the dam continue to be high, at about 1.51 lakh cusecs.

The decision was taken after a sudden increase in inflows from Handri, Tungabhadra and Krishna rivers on Tuesday

The Srisailam dam chief engineer C Narayana Reddy on Wednesday said that the floodgates will be opened between 6 am and 7 am. The Krishna River Management Board too has advised that the water level be limited to 883 feet.
