Apart from rains, irrigation officials attributed the steady inflows due to repairs being taken up in crest gates of Narayanpur project in Karnataka. As a result, water is being released downstream to Jurala project.
About 17,264 cusecs are being released downstream from Jurala project to Srisailam for power generation.
