Mangaluru: Presently, water is amassed at the height of 6 meter at Thumbay vented dam and around 14.25 million cubic meters of water lies stored at the AMR dam which can be used for the next 150 days. Therefore, there is no possibility of water shortage being faced by the city this time, said Mayor Bhaskar K.

Water stored at Thumbay dam will last for 50 days (6 meters) and for 100 days at AMR dam (14.25 mcft). The deputy commissioner has directed for the storage of the maximum amount of water at AMR dam. Currently, the inflow of the river is at 20 cumec (1 cumec = a cubic meter per second flow of water) and hence, during the summer the city will not face a problem with the supply of drinking water. The public must not waste water and use it judiciously, he said.
