The water level in the Idukki reservoir on the downstream of the Mullaperiyar dam on Monday was 2,384.7 ft against  2,393 ft on the same day last year. A senior official of the Kerala State Electricity Board said that water from the Mullaperiyar dam has not started arriving in the Idukki reservoir. He said that it will take at least two more days for the water to reach, if released. There is no chance at present for  opening the shutters of the Idukki dam even if there is an additional inflow through the Periyar, he said.
