Karanja dam in Bidar almost full

Five days of rainfall in the catchment area of Telangana and parts of Humnabad and Bidar taluks has led to increased inflows into the mid-size reservoir Karanja dam.

The dam has around five tmcft of water and the inflow has stabilised at the rate of 6,000 cusecs, irrigation officials said.

They plan to open the gates to let out water if the storage crosses five tmcft. The dam has just one metre left to reach the full reservoir level, an officer in charge of the project said.
