With water level in Pong dam remaining "worrisome" due to "deficient" rains in catchment areas, Bhakra Beas Management Board on Tuesday said a decision on cutting down water release from the reservoir will be taken in consultation with three partnering states next week.
The water level at Himachal Pradesh`s Pong dam would Thursday rise again marginally due to discharge of excess water from another dam located upstream but there is no threat of flood due to it, an official said.
The BBMB authorities today opened the spillways Pong Dam in
Himachal Pradesh as a precaution after the water level in the
dam crossed the danger mark but authorities ruled out flood
threat to lower riparian areas.
