1 min read

Mandya: Following the release of water from Hemavathy dam, Devalapura lake in Nagamangala taluk has breached, inundating agricultural fields in the surrounding area.

According to villagers, following heavy rainfall received in the catchment area of the dam, heavy inflow of water was recorded in the recent days. It also exceeded the regular outflow of water, brimming up the Devalapura lake.

As the outflow increased the boundary walls of the lake breached.

It is after a gap of 20 years that the lake has breached, the villagers added. They also thank MLA Suresh Gowda for taking up measures to revive the condition of the lake.

If the measures are taken to bring the lake under irrigation plans, it will help in rejuvenating ground water table and also supply water to nearby agricultural fields.
