Reports reaching here said that over one lakh cusecs of water is coming into the reservoir with heavy rainfall in Karnataka and Sangareddy district and the river Manjeera across which the dam was built has been in spate.

Six flood gates were lifted to let the water go into the river. Farmers under its ayacut expressed happiness over the reservoir receiving bumper inflows after a long time.
