Gujarat’s water lifeline, the reservoir of the Sardar Sarovar Dam on the Narmada River, was filled to capacity on Thursday as a result of this season’s heavy rainfall.
To mark the occasion, Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel offered prayers at the dam site.
This is the third time that the dam has reached its full reservoir level after 2019 and 2020.
According to the report, the water level is 138.68 metres above the dam’s full reservoir level of 138.62 metres.
The reservoir now has 4.93 million acre-foot or 5.76 lakh crore litres of water stock and the State will not face water scarcity in the coming summer.
Farmers in the dam’s command area can also get water for rabi crops.
