Bisalpur dam level a cause for concern 21.4.2018 DNA: India
Drinking water supply in Jaipur hinges on Bisalpur dam completely. This has been the situation after Ramgarh dam dried up, prompting the government to initiate water connection from the former. But the alarming fact is that besides Bisalpur dam, there is no other source of drinking water for the city. And in the event of the Bisalpur dam drying up, the city would be left high and dry, literally. During monsoon last year, the Bisalpur dam was not completely filled up and currently, the water level in the dam is low. With the current level of water, the city’s water needs can last till October 2018. However, if the monsoon remains weak this year, the ripple effect (of water shortage) will take place in summer next year. Despite the high court order, the government could not make the Ramgarh dam operational even though 70% of the capital is in the Dark Zone. All the dams lying around the city of Jaipur are dry and the ground level of the city is rapidly falling. Bisalpur dam located in Tonk district is the ...
