Gadwal: The officials of Tummilla Lift Irrigation Project have stopped pumping of water from the reservoir into Rajolibanda Diversion Scheme canal due to heavy inflows of water from the upstream. According to the irrigation officials of the project, the project is receiving more than 25,000 cusecs of water from upstream because of which the canal is overflowing over 3 feet above the normal.

With the heavy inflows, the officials have stopped the lift motors at the pumphouse near Tummilla for the past two days and expected to halt the motors for another 3-4 days until the upstream water flow is receded. "Heavy upstream flow has forced to stop the Tummilla Lift Irrigation Project motors. We are expecting this will continue for another 3-4 days and will resume pumping after the flood gets slowed down," informed a senior official at Thumilla project.

At present, the water flow into RDS canal is recorded to be 25,000 cusecs, from which the officials are releasing water up to 7.5 feet to the main canal and it is expected to continue the same until the upstream flow recedes in the next 3-4 days.
