Bhakra, Pong dam water levels at new low

With the water level down to a new low in the Bhakra and Pong dams, the Bhakra Beas Management Board has convened a meeting of partner states next week.

The water level in the Bhakra and Pong Dams is down by over 48 feet over last year because of the shortfall of rainfall. Alarmed at the situation, the Bhakra Beas Management Board has called a meeting of partner states on June 25th to discuss the distribution of water share.

The water level of Bhakra Dam on Monday was 1527.94 feet, compared to last year’s 16,329. And of the Pong Dam it’s 1301.47 feet. Last year, the figure was 1350 .03 feet.

In addition to the less melting of snowfall, there has also been scanty rainfall in the catchment area of Bhakra Dam. The filling period of the reservoir begins on May 21 and continues till September 20. The optimum level of Bhakra Dam to store water is 1680 feet.

Partner states Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan will get the share of water as per the agreement after the meeting on June 25. 

For now, BBMB officials are looking skywards for some hope.
