Hyderabad: Heavy rains lead to opening of four more gates of Osman Sagar

After heavy rains in the area, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) opened four more gates at the Osman Sagar reservoir on Saturday evening.

The reservoir’s six gates have now been opened up to three feet. 2,000 cusecs of inflow were received by Osman Sagar, along with 2,106 cusecs of outflow.

In the meantime, Himayat Sagar received 600 cusecs of inflow. There was a 678 cusec outflow recorded from the reservoir when two gates were left open up to one foot.

Heavy rains have been falling for the last two or three days, causing lakes and ponds in many states to overflow. As a result, heavy flood water will reach the reservoirs.

To prepare for the release of water downstream, 20 crest gates of the Nagarjuna Sagar Project were opened. Currently, the project’s inflow is 3,35,786 cusecs and its outflow is 3,29,394 cusecs. Sagar’s full water level is 590 feet, and its current level is 587.90 feet.

Currently, Nagarjunasagar has a water storage capacity of 306.0414 TMC, which is the full capacity of 312.0405 TMC.

IMD predicts rains for upcoming week
