Water released from Karna not yet reached Hogenakkal



Salem: A total of 2000 cusecs of water released from Krishnaraja Sagar dam in Karnataka as per the Supreme Court directive has not yet reached Hogenakkal or Mettur dam, PWD sources said.

The Supreme Court had directed Karnataka to release 2.44 TMC feet of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu while rejecting the latter's plea 12 TMC ft to save standing crops in delta districts.
