The danger mark of the river at the weir is at 43 feet, he said.
On Friday, the level of the river rose after water was discharged from Radhanagari dam in the district following heavy showers in the catchment area.
Last year, unprecedented rainfall had wreaked havoc in western Maharashtra, especially in Kolhapur and Sangli districts, claiming over 60 lives.
