Live storage in Krishnaraja Sagar down to 3 tmcft – The Hindu

Inadequate rainfall and the agitation over the sharing of Cauvery waters has resulted in the precarious depletion of the water level in the Krishnaraja Sagar reservoir (KRS). The live storage (LS) as on Tuesday evening was 3.115 tmcft against the maximum of 45.051 tmcft. It was 7.30 tmcft on October 1, and was 21.600 tmcft this day last year. The full gross storage capacity is 49.452 tmcft.The compliance of the Supreme Court order on Tuesday, of releasing water at the rate of 2,000 cusecs to Tamil Nadu until further orders, will augment the drinking water crisis in KRS-dependent districts, say officials of Cauvery Neeravari Nigam Ltd.
