Chandigarh, August 2
The water level of Sukhna Lake has reached 1,161.40 ft due to rain in its catchment area. The level is nearly 1.6 ft below the danger mark.
On July 28, the water level in the lake was recorded at 1,159.90 ft, said an official of the UT Engineering Department. He said the water level was expected to rise further if rain continued in the region.
The official said the floodgates would be opened if the water level reached the danger mark. “The Administration is ready to deal with any situation,” said the official.
The two floodgates had to be opened in August last year after the water level of the lake reached the danger mark. Before this, on September 24, 2018, officials had opened the floodgates. Before 2018, it was in 2008 that the floodgates had to be opened when a similar situation arose. After floodgates are opened, water is carried to the Gaggar. — TNS
