83975 Cusec waters leaked from the Narora Dam on Saturday evening after the Alaknanda and Mandakini rivers became torrential due to incessant rains in the mountains of Uttarakhand. Due to the rain in the Shahjahanpur district and the adjacent plains, the water level of the Ganges at the Bhainsar Dam of Kalan tehsil has risen by 23 cm in the last 24 hours. The amount of water released from various barrages also increased in the Ramganga, a tributary of the Ganges. Because of this, more than five dozen villages on the banks of both rivers are at risk of flooding. The executive engineer of the irrigation department denied the flood situation in the district, but said that in addition to continuously monitoring the water levels of the rivers, extensive preparations were made to deal with any unusual situation. Sources in the irrigation department say the water discharged into the Ganges via Hazratpur (Badaun) can raise the water level of the Ganges in Kalan tehsil of the district until Monday morning.

Tara Babu Girija Kishore Mishra of the department said the extra water released at night will cause the water level to rise slightly due to the width of the corridor. He announced that on Sunday morning in Ramganga 33110 Cusec water from barrages from Hareli, Kho, Kichha, Ramnagar etc. As a result, the villages of the district on either side of the Ramganga are not threatened by flooding, but when the Ramganga beyond Farrukhabad enters the Ganges flows, the risk of flooding increases there.

The water began to rise in Garra and Khannaut as well
Along with the Ganges and Ramganga, the water in the Garra and Khannaut rivers near the city has also increased. The Department of Irrigation’s Flood Control Room has received information on the release of 1365 Cusec water from the Dunee Dam in Pilibhit to Garra. Since this water flow is more than the last two days, the water level of Khannot including Garra has risen by about ten cm in the last 24 hours, but these two rivers are also far from the danger mark. According to the Department of Irrigation, both rivers have increased over the past week due to the impact of 34mm of rain on the plains of the district as the water does not come from any barrage in Khannaut, but the ones in it meet the area’s rainy drains.

Villagers in these villages were alerted

0 Ganga (buffalo) 143.00 144.10 141.43
0 Ganga (Kachla) 162.00 164.30 161.85

0 pour 148.50 149.80 144.05
0 Khannaut 146.50 146.75 142.55

The water level will not rise much due to the release of 83000 Kusec water due to the wide current of the Ganges. There is also limited water that comes to Ramganga from the Kalagarh Dam. Even so, most of the preparations for dealing with the flood have been completed. The physical condition of the Bhainsar Dam of Ganga in Kalan has been checked and is in perfect working order. To save the villages on the right bank of the Ramganga in Paraur from flooding, temporary stumbling blocks with three geotubes will be completed in two to three days.
