Water situation at Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) Dam grim

Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) Dam, the lifeline of Mandya residents and farmers has gone dry with absolutely no increase in water level from the present dead storage level. At present, the dam has 8.2 tmcft of water at the dead storage level of 74.76 ft. While the maximum capacity of the dam is 124.8 ft, last year, the water level stood at 102 ft during this time.

Water supply to Mysuru, Mandya and Bengaluru will be seriously affected in the next few days as the water level has hit the dead storage and there is no rain in the catchment areas for the water to flow into the dam. And with soaring temperature already tormenting people in Mysuru and Mandya, the water-level is expected to dip further.
