The Manchhar Lake water level is dropping, so the Sindh Irrigation Department has initiated a survey to plug cuts made there.
After the water started flowing into the Indus River, the lake’s flood level plummeted even further. According to sources, the lake’s capacity level was RL 123, but Manchhar’s water level has plummeted to RL 120.
The Manchhar Lake discharges 1.5 Lac cusecs of water into the Indus River per day, according to information released by the Sindh Irrigation Department on Tuesday.
“Floodwater also receding in various areas after the water level going down in Manchhar Lake,” rescue sources said. “The water standing in Jhangara and Bajara union council has also dropped,” sources added.
According to sources, floodwater levels have dropped in Talti and Bhanbha union councils and connection roads have been restored.
According to irrigation sources, the water level is declining in the UC Shaikh villages while remaining high in five union councils.
The largest freshwater reservoir in Pakistan is Manchhar Lake, which spans the Sindh districts of Dadu and Jamshoro. The lake, which is located on the right bank of the Indus River, is the focal point of floods in Sindh’s districts.
Due to flooding in the river, the water from the Kheerthar Range flash floods inundated the area and turned it into a sizable lake, making it impossible for the water to find a way out to enter the Indus.
