  1. it is full now but at the end of next april- may it will become empty,the government/corporation/water supply department should increase its capacity.I think the capacity of the dam is same since last so many years(50-60 years)

  2. When common man like us understand the basic problem of increasing the size and capacity of the reservoir why do not the concerned authority think of the same and help people at large. Further if there is no rain for a year or two it should still serve the purpose. Can this ever happen ? And the same with Hidkal dam as well.
