The sharp rise in the inflow to Mettur dam is likely to go up further with the release of water from dams in Karnataka.
Water from Hogenakkal is expected to reach Mettur dam in a day or two. The inflow into the dam has already risen gradually from a meager 164 cusecs on July 14 to 3,600 cusecs on Monday and further to 3,820 cusecs on Tuesday at 8 am. The release from the dam has been maintained at 10,000 cusecs. Also the storage stands at 68.670 feet.
The dam, which maintained a storage level of more than 100 feet for over 300 days, began to dip following release of water for delta irrigation.
