Hyderabad, Oct 2: With heavy inflow of Flood waters to Srisailam dam, danger seems to loom large on the hydel project of Srisailam. The Flood waters this time have reached a record level leaving the officials in a quandary.
Srisailam dam authorities have already raised the eleven crest gates releasing the water to Nagarjuna Sagar. They are making efforts to lift even the emergency gate also to keep the dam away from threat of any danger.
The inflow into the dam is 21 lakh cu sec of water while the out flow is only 20 lakh cu sec of water. If the inflow does not recede in the next couple of days then there is a threat to the safety of the dam. The backwaters have already caused immense damage to Kurnool town and the neighbouring villages.
