Shahjahanpur. Due to the three days of rain from the hills of Uttarakhand to the plains, the water levels of the rivers flowing through the district have risen again. Compared to the past 24 hours, the ganga at Bhainsar Dam in the Kalan area has increased by two inches. The water level in the Ganges continues to rise due to the doubling of the water from the Narora dam. Due to the increased release of water from other barrages, the water in the Garra River near the city including Ramganga has also become more than normal.
This time, the pre-monsoon rains had started in the first week of June while it should be in the third week. Due to 94.6 mm of precipitation in three phases, there was a risk of the barrage overflowing, so the drainage from there was increased. On the evening of June 20, 2.30 lakh Kusec water came from the Narora Dam, then from the Dhai Ghat of Mirzapur to the Bhainsar Dam in the Kalan region.
Not only that, Ramganga also spread from the Chaubari Ghat of Bareilly to the Paraur area of ​​the district.
Later, when the rain stopped, the rivers returned to normal flow, but due to the three rainy days, the water outflow from the barrage increased, then the water levels of the rivers rose in the same proportion. According to the information received by the Irrigation Department’s flood control room on Wednesday morning, the water withdrawal in the Ganga of Narora Barrage has increased from 26678 Cusec to 77819 Cusec. Similarly, the amount of water in Ramganga from barrages like Kho, Hareli, Kichha, Kalagarh, Ramnagar, etc. has increased by about 20,000 Cusec to 72581 Cusec. The water outflow from the Dune Dam near the city has increased to 12030 Cusec, while 4888 Cusec water came from Dune a day earlier.
According to Tar Babu Girija Kishore Mishra from the Ministry of Irrigation, the ganga has increased by five cm in the past 24 hours from Kachla Ghat in Badaun to Bhainsar Dam in Kalan due to the effects of rain. The Ganges flows 162 meters in Kachla and 141.77 meters in Bhainsar. Likewise, in Chaubari the Ramganga has risen by 5 cm to 159.50 meters and the water level of Garra near the city has risen by 5 cm to 144.25 meters. They say the water level of Khannaut has dropped 20 cm to 143.35 meters since last day due to less rain, but the water levels of Ganga, Ramganga and Garra are expected to rise on Thursday when the water from the barrage reaches here.
Mud on the streets from rain and drizzle
Late Tuesday the drizzle stopped for a few hours, but there was a flood of rain showers on Wednesday morning. In the afternoon the weather remained pleasant due to the cool, humid air with intermittent drizzle and the sky covered with black clouds, but the accumulation of rainwater on the streets made it so slippery due to mud in places that people had to move and had a lot of inconvenience .
It didn’t rain much from morning to afternoon. As a result, there was no waterlogging, but the drizzling rain made the mountains of rubbish that had accumulated on the streets muddy in places. Let us tell you that during the market closing at night, the traders have their shops cleaned and all the rubbish strewn on the streets. Today the city administration’s cleaners celebrated a public holiday because of Bakrid instead of doing their regular work. This was the reason why when it started drizzling in the morning, the dirt that was scattered on the streets by the rainwater made it difficult for people to walk.
It is difficult to walk on the swampy and muddy street of Bahadurganjs Gallamandi, the main street of Bahadurganj market also looked full of dirt today. People have slipped and fallen in the mud in many places, from the Lohia colony to the Bahadurganj substation, the streets of Bijlipura in front of the old district hospital, etc.
After 0.6 mm of rain on Tuesday night, only 2 mm of rain fell during the day on Wednesday, but due to the low-pressure area from evening onwards, heavy rains can occur on Thursday from morning to afternoon. -DR. Manmohan Singh, Meteorologist, Sugarcane Research Council
