Monsoon in East Rajasthan led to Rise in Water Level in Many Dams

As the monsoon has entered the state of Rajasthan providing the much-needed respite from the scorching heat, the water level in many dams has risen this year. Although Bisalpur dam is yet to receive a decent amount of rainfall to get its water level raised to the desired level, many districts have received a good amount of rains this monsoon.

On the other hand districts like Jalore, Sirohi, and Barmer are still hoping to get more rainfall so as to witness an increase in the water level.  Talking about the capital city, the MET department has reported that Jaipur has got a higher amount of rainfall this year as compared to the last year. Currently, the torrential rains continue to drench the Pink City rendering a scenic view of the Aravalli Ranges.

Moving on, the water level of Kota Barrage has reached up to 105.110 cusec meter as against the full capacity of 112.060 cusec meter while Jawahar Sagar has gained up to 48.540 cusec meter of water level against the total capacity of 67.120 cusec meter.

In contrary, the Bisalpur dam has a full capacity of 1095.840 cusec meter but it has reached up to 257.148 cusec meters. Since the dam fulfills the water needs of Tonk, Ajmer, and Jaipur, it still needs more rains to gain the desired level of water.

All the districts of the state have received different amounts of rainfall ranging from abnormal to normal. These districts as per the categories are enlisted below:

  • Abnormal- Bharatpur, Bikaner, Dungarpur, Sikar, and Sawai Madhopur
  • Excess- Baran, Bhilwara, Banswara, Alwar, Churu, Chittorgarh, Dholpur, Jaipur, Jhalawar, Jhunjhunu, Karauli, Kota, Pratapgarh, Rajsamand, Sriganganagar, and Udaipur.
  • Normal- Ajmer, Bundi, Dausa, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Hanumangarh, Pali, Tonk, and Nagpur.
