Bhatsa Dam Overflow, Dam Gates Opened, Alert to Riverside Villages


Bhatsa Dam Overflow: Due to heavy rains in the dam area for the last few days, the Bhatsa dam has overflowed after the Barvi dam. Therefore, it is being said that the water concern of Mumbai and Thane has been resolved.

Bhatsa Dam Overflow

The Bhatsa dam in Shahapur taluka, which supplies water to Mumbai and Thane, is 99 per cent full due to torrential rains falling daily in Shahapur taluka since one instalment. Therefore, all the five gates of the dam have been opened by two and a half centimetres. 190.89 cusecs of water are being discharged from the dam. Villages along the Bhatsa river in Sapgaon have been alerted as water is likely to flow from the bridge.

Already on the edge

Last month, the Bhatsa dam was filled to the brim. So three dams of the dam were opened. The doors were then closed the next day. Now the dam is 99% full, and five gates of the dam have been opened.


Barvi dam also overflows!

Meanwhile, the Barvi dam of Badlapur, which quenches the thirst of the entire Thane district, was finally filled on September 8. Therefore, water discharge has started from 9 out of 11 automatic gates of Barvi Dam. Due to heavy rains this year, Barvi Dam filled up a bit later than every year.

The torrential rains at the end of July had directly filled the Barvi Dam from 50 per cent to 85 per cent. However, the dam was not filled due to heavy rains in August, even though September dawned. So will the dam be filled this year or not? This had caught the attention of the entire Thane district. However, due to heavy rains in the first week of September, the Barvi dam is 100 per cent full, and on the night of September 8, the dam overflowed at total capacity.

The anxiety of these parts disappeared.

The height of Barvi Dam is 72.60 meters, and at present, 340 MCM of water is available in the dam. The Barvi Dam supplies water to Thane, Kalyan-Dombivali, Bhiwandi, Mira-Bhayander, Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporations, Ambernath and Badlapur Municipal Corporations, as well as MIDC and STEM. Therefore, the residents of Thane district have significantly been relieved by the filling of the Barvi dam, and the concern of the Thane district has now been alleviated for the whole year.
