Work to hike water storage in Thumbe dam begins

The Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) has started the process to augment the water storage at Thumbe vented dam across the River Nethravathi, to a height of 6 metres from Sunday, to meet the water requirements of the city in summer.

By storing water up to 6 metres, there will be 10.83 MCM (million cubic metres) of water in the dam. This will be sufficient for the daily supply for 60 days by pumping 160 MLD (million litres a day).

This is the second time that the water will be stored up to 6 metres since the new dam was built at Thumbe across River Netravathi in 2016. The dam’s full reservoir level is 7 metres.

The Mangaluru City Corporation has warned people residing on the banks of the river to be cautious. People have been asked to be careful as  the  water  level  will go up on the river bank.
