After 10 Years, All 26 Gates Of Nagarjuna Sagar Lifted

The good news of Telangana’s major reservoirs being filled up, thanks to Krishna river being in spate all along its course, was laced with tragedy when two persons were washed away downstream of Nagarjuna Sagar dam on Monday.

The inflows into Nagarjuna Sagar rose so rapidly that Irrigation Department officials, who first opened four gates, quickly raised all 26 gates at the dam to a height of 15 feet to let out 3,30,720 cusecs of water as the day progressed. Officials said two persons, caught in the discharge from the dam, were washed away and feared killed. This is the first time in 10 years that all the 26 gates have been lifted.
