The water levels in twin reservoirs of Himayath Sagar and Osman Sagar have started to increase slowly. Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) is expecting further inflows into both Osman Sagar and Himayath Sagar reservoirs as the catchment areas have been receiving a good amount of rainfall in the recent rains.

On Friday, the water level in Himayat Sagar was 1,747 feet as against the Full Reservoir Level (FRL) of 1,763 feet and in Osman Sagar it was 1,761 feet against a FRL of 1,790 feet.

This was after the water levels increased by 1.3 ft in Himayath Sagar and by 2.2 ft in Osman Sagar. On Thursday too, there were considerable inflows into the reservoirs with most parts of the city, including the catchments areas, receiving good rains.

Water Board officials further informed that there would be no dearth of drinking water in the city because the main sources of drinking water to Hyderabad, the Nagarjuna Sagar Project on River Krishna and Yellampally project on River Godavari, have received good inflows. Since 2015, the HMWSSB had stopped drawing water from Osman Sagar and Himayat Sagar, but had to draw water last summer due to low water levels in the Singur and Manjeera reservoirs.
