Written by: Staff

Patiala, May 18 (UNI) Due to rise in temperatures in the higher reaches of Himachal Pradesh which has resulted in the brisk melting of snow in the past few days, there has been a sudden rise in the water level of the Gobind Sagar reservoir of the Bhakra Dam.

According to BBMB sources the reservoir level of Bhakra was recorded at 1571.12 feet on May 15. On the same date last year the water level was 1534.78 feet.

The Bhakra Dam received 34,563 cusecs water on May 14 where as on May 15, 35,706 cusecs water reached the dam. This is due to the melting of snow in the sources of the Satluj river and its tributaries.

Sources said that water inflow in other dams in Himachal Pradesh has also increased. At the Dehra Dam, water level was recorded at 3084 feet on May 15 which was higher than last year.

The water level in the Ranjit Sagar Dam over the Ravi has also increased considerably and was recorded at 510.79 meters on May 15.
