Irrigation Projects in Krishna basin have been receiving huge inflows following widespread rains in the catchment area. Alamatti Dam in Karnataka is full to the brim. The waters levels in both Nayayanpur and Jurala projects have been on the rise, thanks to the adequate outflows from Alamatti.
The inflows to Jurala are in the order of 1,29,00 cusecs while 1,29,776 cusecs were being let out. Reservoir level at Jurala touched 317.60 feet. All 32 gates of the projects were opened releasing the flood waters into Srisailam project.
The Genco could manage a generation of 190 MW from six hydel units at Jurala. Project Chief Engineer Prakash informed that 1.07 lakh acres of Kharif ayacut would be covered this season. The lift schemes intended from drawing water from Jurala project would become operational once the levels touched the FRL.
