KURNOOL: The seepage into the Srisailam Right Main Canal from the reservoir stirred the irrigation and revenue officials into action on Friday. The irrigation officials noted leakages at 11 places which ranged to 300 cusecs.
The irrigation officials were drawing 7,500 cusecs from the Srisailam reservoir at Pothireddypadu head regulator to supply water to Telugu Ganga and KC canal. However, leaks were found along the 11-km stretch of SRMC as the level in the Srisailam reservoir rose to 883 ft. In addition to the unwanted seepage, Bhavansi river was also discharging 500 cusecs into the canal. Collector Ramsankar Naik visited the place and discussed the problem with the irrigation officials. The local people told the Collector that the canal turned unprotected because of the streams joining it along the course.
Sekharayya, executive engineer of the SRMC, told the Collector that the seepage had no immediate threat either to the canal or to the nearby villages.
