Water-Level in Bargi Dam Still Short by Seven Metre to Touch FRL

Despite rising water level in state’s biggest dam Bargi, built on river Narmada, it is still short by 7 meters to touch the Full Reservoir Level (FRL) due to less rainfall in its catchment area.

CL Vishawkarma, the Bargi Project Assistant Engineer, informed that the water level in the Bargi dam in Jabalpur district had risen to 415.70 metre mark against the FRL of 422.76 metre mark.

It may be mentioned that the dam is the lifeline of four big hydro electric stations located on river Narmada, which produce more than 2, 500 MW of electricity.

The water from Bargi hydel station goes downstream to the dams of Indira Sagar and Omkareshwar power projects in Khandwa district and then to Sardar Sarovar Project (SSP) in Gujarat, said officials.
