“If there is a heavy surge of tourists in weekends, the situation would become worse as there is not sufficient water for all,” an official said.
“In the previous years, we used to close the falls in April as the brunt of summer was felt only in the fourth month.
“The present water level would be sufficient only for the animals.
We would decide on opening the falls to public only after a rain, when water flow is replenished,” said the official.Meanwhile, forest rangers are busy setting up artificial ponds and water troughs for wild animals.
This year, summer’s effect has reached a high point in March itself.
