The water level in the Krishnarajasagar Dam in Mandya district of Karnataka is getting closer to dead storage levels. The dam is the main source of drinking water for towns like Mysuru, Mandya and others on the highway to Bengaluru. It also supplies water to that big capital city - and the hope is for summer rains to improve the situation. With less than 300 cusecs flowing into the dam each day, and more than 800 cusecs being released for drinking purposes, it is no wonder that the Krishnarajasagar Dam looks bare and brown in places where in better years water is seen.
