Water level at Thumbe Dam reduced: Something to worry about!

The water level in the Thumbe dam which supplies drinking water to Mangalore city has reduced from 6 metre to 5.45 metre. This happened after the inflow of water from the Netravati River to the dam came to a halt.
About 200 MLD (million litres a day) of water is being used daily by the Mangalore City Corporation, Mangalore University for its campus, Bantwal town municipality and farmers from Thumbe. The water from the dam is  supplied to Ullal and Mulki as well.
The dam has a capacity to store water up to seven metres and currently is stored up to six metres. When water is stored up to a height of 7 metre, 14.78 MCM of water can be stored in the dam and at present, only 10.83 MCM is stored.
If the water-level declines more then the water from AMR dam will be released to the river Nethravathi of the citizens.
The Mangalore City Corporation officials had already visited AMR Power Pvt Ltd’s dam at Shambhoor, Disha power project dam near Kadaba, Sagar Power project dam at Uppinangady to assess the water level.
