Water level in River Godavari at Bhadrachalam has crossed the first warning level of 43 feet again on Monday after it receded to normal level on Sunday from first danger level.

According to the Central Water Commission (CWC) officials, the water level at Bhadrachalam on Monday at 8 am was at 41.7 feet, and it was marked at 43.1 feet at 7pm, following which the District Collector Rajat Kumar Saini issued first warning.

He advised the people on the banks of the river to be alert as the water level was increasing due to floods in upper catchment area. He directed the tahsildars and sectoral officers not to leave their place of work.

Electric water pumps have been employed at Vista complex to pump out flood waters to avoid inundation of Bhadrachalam town.  Two persons in each village have been engaged to keep the officials informed about flood situation in their villages, he said.

He also directed the officials to assess and submit a report on loss caused by recent rains and due to flooding of villages by Godavari waters and other streams. Sanitation works must be taken up to prevent spread of diseases, he noted.
