Drop in inflow into Almatti, TB reservoirs

The inflow into Almatti reservoir in Bagalkot district came down to 22,837 cusecs on Monday from a high of 41,901 cusecs recorded on July 3.

The dam was getting copious water following heavy rain in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra in the first week of this month. However, rain has receded in the past four days and there have been no showers in major catchment areas of River Krishna in the last 24 hours. None of the major reservoirs in the Krishna basin has filled up.

The water level in Almatti dam stood at 512.10 metres on Monday, against the maximum of 519.60 metres. The reservoir, which can impound 123 tmcft of water, has only 41.53 tmcft of water at present.

Similarly, the inflow into Tungabhadra reservoir in Hosapete has also come down. It received 8,456 cusecs of water on Monday against 9,757 cusecs on Sunday and 11,979 cusecs on Saturday. However, the water storage in the dam increased to 12.069 tmcft on Monday.

Meanwhile, there was fresh landslide near Bedti bridge between Yellapur and Sirsi on Sunday evening. It is feared that the road connectivity between the two towns may be cut off if it continues to rain in the region.
