In a recent update on water management measures, authorities have reported changes in the water levels of key reservoirs supplying the city. Over the past three days, the water level in Pichola Lake has risen by 3 inches, attributed to an influx of 30 MCFt of water. This surge has elevated the lake level to 6.10 feet. Soon water will be diverted to Fatehsagar Lake via the Link Canal. 

Meanwhile, Alsigarh Dam's level has slightly decreased from 17 to 16 feet, and the Madri Dam from 16 to 13 feet. Presently, the combined water storage in both dams stands at 102 MCFt, capable of sustaining supply for three to four more days.

Looking ahead, authorities have announced plans to supplement the city's water supply by sourcing water from Akodara Dam starting next week. Currently, the Akodara Dam holds 283 MCFt of water, offering promising prospects for maintaining the water levels of both lakes up to 8-8 feet. This anticipated rise in water levels is crucial as it could ensure uninterrupted drinking water supply to the city for an estimated one and a half months.

It is noteworthy that the Public Health Engineering Department (PHED) routinely extracts 31 MLD (Million Liters per Day) of water from Pichola Lake to meet the needs of the city's population. This ongoing effort underscores the collaborative approach taken by local authorities to manage water resources efficiently and ensure continued access to clean water for residents.
