Amaravati, Aug 24 (PTI): With rains stopping in the last

couple of days, particularly in the upper catchment regions,

inflows into the major reservoirs on rivers Godavari and

Krishna fell significantly in Andhra Pradesh on Monday.

A drastic reduction of over five lakh cusecs in the flood

flow eased the situation in the marooned villages along its

course in East and West Godavari districts and normalcy is

expected by Tuesday, according to sources in the State

Disaster Management Authority here.

The Sir Arthur Cotton Barrage at Dowaleswaram near

Rajamahendravaram received an inflow of 13.92 lakh cusecs on

Monday evening and that much was discharged into the Bay of

Bengal.

The second warning signal at the Barrage has also been

withdrawn now.

In river Krishna, the flood flow dwindled to just about

2.65 lakh cusecs at Srisailam and only 1.91 lakh cusecs was

Srisailam was now holding 209.88 tmc ft, with a flood cushion

of 5.93 tmc ft, according to the Water Resources Department

data.

Downstream, the Nagarjuna Sagar reservoir held 305.68 tmc

ft of water with an inflow of 1.45 lakh cusecs and discharge

of 1.28 lakh cusecs.
