    The water level at Palair Reservoir in Khammam is dropping, causing concern for farmers in the area. The reservoir is currently at 18.5 feet, well below its full capacity of 28 feet. The water supply is expected to last only 10 more days, raising worries about providing water for the Mission Bhagiratha scheme.

    With the summer approaching, the need for water is expected to increase. Residents in Khammam, Suryapet, Mahabubabad, Mulugu, and Warangal districts are facing a shortage of drinking water due to insufficient water supply from projects in the area. The lack of water is already affecting cultivated lands in Sagar Ayakattu, leading to damaged crops.

    Farmers are calling for water to be released from the reservoir to prevent further losses and evaporation. The government is reviewing the situation and exploring alternative options like diverting water from other sources to replenish the Palair Reservoir.

    Farmers are worried about the impact on their crops if water is not released soon. They staged a protest demanding immediate action to address the water shortage and ensure their livelihoods are protected.
