Pichola at 8 feet-Water to be diverted to Fathesagar
Hold your breath-Fatehsagar may return to its beautiful self soon.
Rains in the past 2 days have raised the level of Lake Pichola and it crossed 7.5 feet. The gates of dam at Alsigarh have been lifted at 9 inches. The water from this dam is entering Lake Pichola. Since this has raised the water level even further, water will be diverted to Fathesagar Lake via Swaroop Sagar link. It may be noted that Udaipur had 3 inches of rainfall in the past 24 hours.
Till the time this news was received, there were reports of water diversion towards Fatehsagar once Lake Pichola crosses 8 feet. If rain continues, there are all the possibilities that water will enter Fatehsagar through Madar link as well. The level of water of Chota Madar (capacity 24feet) has reached 16.5 feet and that of Bada Madar has gone to 16 feet. Once both these water bodies get enough water, then Fatehsagar is likely to experience a good rise in its water level.
Let us take a look at rainfall received in various areas:
Udaipur city 75mm, Swaroop Sagar 45 mm, Madar 59 mm, Udaisagar 75 mm, Nai 46 mm, Sei dam 117 mm, Vallabhnagar 82 mm, Salumber 100 mm, Bagoliya 62 mm, Daya 82 mm, Jaisamand 137 mm, Gogunga 80 mm, Kejad 60 mm, Ogna 104 mm, Devas 75 mm, Som Pickup 50 mm, Som Kagdar 42 mm, Jhadol 122 mm, Rishabhdev 68 mm, Kotda 140 mm, Kherwara 32mm, Bavalwada 56 mm and Semari 60 mm.
