Low water storage in dams a concern, says Gujarat deputy CM Nitin Patel 6.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Low water storage in dams in Gujarat has increased the worries of the state government, said Nitin Patel, deputy chief minister of Gujarat. The government is hoping for rainfall this week. Or else, the situation will only worsen further. However, the weather department has not predicted state-wide rainfall this week. “Rains were delayed in Gujarat. The first spell of rains in south Gujarat and Saurashtra was conducive for sowing. However, rains are still inadequate in north Gujarat and Kutch. Storage of water in dams is also not up to our expectations. If it does not rain now, then the situation will be tough,” said Nitin Patel. Currently, all the 204 dams in Gujarat have 3,37,352 million cubic feet (mcf) of water, which is just 37.88 per cent of total storage capacity of 8,90,650 mcf.  Patel also said that the state’s main dam, Sardar Sarovar Dam, has received lower inflow of water as rainfall in the catchment areas has been insufficient. He admitted that the government has been caught on the wrong foot ...
