Major irrigation projects on both Krishna and Godavari river basins in the State have been receiving massive inflows of flood water because of heavy rains in many districts of the State. The inflows are expected to increase further forcing the Water Resources Engineers to let the flood water down the stream by lifting crest gates.

According to the flood forecast of the Central Water Commission (CWC) on Tuesday, Lakshmi (Medigadda) barrage of Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme (KLIS) on river Godavari which is having a water level of 98.6 metres against a Full Reservoir Level (FRL) of 100 metres is expected to receive 3,200 cumecs (cubic metres per second) of flood water by Wednesday from rains in the upper regions. 

Similarly the Sripada Yellampally project is expected to receive flood of over 1600 cumecs, Srisailam to receive 7,500 cumecs and Sri Ram Sagar Project (SRSP) is to receive 3500 cumecs by Wednesday.

The project is holding 215.66 tmc of water against a capacity of 215.8 tmc. At Nagarjuna Sagar the inflows were 2,30,980 cusecs and outflows were 1,89,332 cusecs. The quantum of water available in the reservoir was 310.85 tmc against its capacity of 312.05 tmc.
