Water level in Maha dams at 40%, enough to last till July 15

#Jalyuktshivar working well
This year when 140 district in the country are dry, in Maharashtra, even those districts which are amongst driest in the country are not badly placed
except for dams in Amravati and Nagpur regions of Vidarbha, all reservoirs are in a position to supply water till July 15 as they have 35-40% stock. Water levels in dams in and around Mumbai, Pune, Nashik and in Konkan region are impressively high—40-48% to 55-60%.
In 2016, the water stock in dams across Maharashtra, barring Mumbai and Pune region, was around 17% and in 2017, it was 40%.
around 76,000 artificial lakes dug up over the last two years as part of the state’s ambitious #JalyuktShivar campaign have recharged wells in farms, and can cater to the domestic needs of farmers till May.
The #Jalyuktshivar campaign has improved groundwater levels in wells and borewells, a boon for farmers in dry regions, especially Marathwada.
In April 2016, the water stock in Marathwada was 0.8% against 41.5% in 2017 and 35.4% in 2018, indicates relief for the state’s driest region this summer. #Jalyuktshivar
