Water-level in the reservoir, which had hit the dead storage level three months ago, crossed the 100-ft mark on Friday night. The full-reservoir level is 124.8 ft.

The water-level in KRS would reach the FRL by the month-end if heavy rainfall continues in the catchment areas, a Cauvery Neeravari Nigam Ltd. officer said.
