S Bachan Jeet Singh ByExpress News ServiceHYDERABAD: With fresh inflows into the Nagarjuna Sagar reservoir, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) has removed emergency pumping arrangements that were installed at the off-shore of Nagarjuna Sagar in May for drawing water from dead storage level, i.e., below 510 feet level.
Due to heavy inflows into Nagarjuna Sagar from Srisailam, the reservoir level has been increasing in the past few days.
Huge inflows into the Srisailam project forced the irrigation authorities to release the water into Nagarjuna Sagar.
In May, the Minimum Draw Down Level (MMDL) depleted to below 510 feet in Nagarjuna Sagar.
Owing to depleting water levels, the Water Board installed ten emergency pumps to draw water from the dead storage level of the dam.
