The Udaipur administration is preparing to meet the summer water requirements of lake city by opening up the upper reservoirs in the upcountry areas.
Pichhola and Fatehsagar water levels have reached near 10ft as the water release began 4 days ago. The water department had decided to keep the level to 9.5ft in both these lakes by opening the gates of Dewas. However the department has taken a call to release the water from Akodara Dam - rather than leaving the water unused in the Akodara Dam, it will be made useful for usage by residents of the city.
Releasing the water from Akodara has taken the water levels at Amarjok nahar to 1.6ft and Sisarma nahar to 3ft.
