Mysore/Beechanahalli, June 29 (KCU&RK)-The water level at KRS reservoir crossed the 100 feet mark with today`s level standing at 100.33 feet. The inflow has been 13,481 cusecs with an outflow of 4,884 cusecs. Last year this day, the level stood at 83.78 ft with an inflow of 3,145 cusecs and an outflow of 4,378 cusecs.

With monsoon being active at the catchment area in Kodagu for the past few days, the inflow has substantially increased to the KRS reservoir and is expected to increase steadily, according to Cauvery Neeravari Nigam sources.

It may be mentioned, the KRS reservoir got filled up to its brim (124.80 feet) on Oct. 28 last year, possibly owing to fluctuating inflows. Now, with the level standing over 100 feet, with a steadily increasing inflow, chances of filling up to the brim looks bright and much earlier than expected.

Interestingly, the level this day in 2009 was only 72.49 feet with an inflow of 507 cusecs and an outflow of 244 cusecs. However, the reservoir level shot up to its brim surprisingly on July 24 itself owing to a good surge in inflow, according to the Nigam sources.

Kabini dam almost full

With a steady inflow of about 11,000 cusecs of water, the Kabini dam in Beechanahalli, H.D. Kote taluk, is almost full.

Rains have been lashing Wynad region in Kerala resulting in copious inflow to the reservoir. Water is being let out through the main crest gates to Tamil Nadu. The water level in the reservoir yesterday was 2,281 feet with the maximum being 2,284 feet, according to Kabini Reservoir Executive Engineer Jayaraj and Assistant Executive Engineer Manjunath.

They have warned that the discharge from the reservoir could be increased any moment to maintain the level. Hence, they have suggested the people and fishermen living close to downstream to move to safer places.

It is also learnt that the Kabini Shubas Power Station has begun generating additional power from yesterday.
