He said 500 cusecs of water would be released per day into KC Canal as long as Sunkesula reservoir received inflows. The water would traverse to a distance of 120 km in KC Canal and would fill the summer storage tanks at Gargeyapuram, Lakshmapuram and Kothapalli to meet the drinking water needs , Mr. Vijaya Mohan said.
