Even though the inflows into the reservoir at Bhakra dam on the Sutlej have reduced, the water level continues to hover above the permissible limit. Consequently, the Bhakra Beas Management Board will continue to discharge excess water through its flood gates.

The inflow recorded today was 69,511 cusecs, down from 91,000 cusecs yesterday. The water level was 1,860.82 ft against the permissible limit of 1,680 ft. There is a further capacity of four feet to cater to any eventuality resulting from freak weather. “We will continue to discharge water through the sluice gates till the level comes to 1,680 ft,” a BBMB functionary said. — TNS
