For the drought-scarred district of Nashik, this week has brought long-awaited relief. With several parts of Maharashtra receiving record rainfall since Sunday, the Godavari is flowing and reservoirs are full. "Till end of June, the 23 medium and major dams in Nashik district were only 9 per cent full. But within three days, from July 9 to July 12, the heavy rainfall has filled them till 29 per cent. That's a 20 per cent rise in just a few hours," said the Ramakrishna B, Collector of Nashik district.
