VISHANT VAZE, BICHOLIM | 19 July 2013 22:20 IST

Four villages of Sattari and Bicholim have been alerted due to rise in water level of Anjune dam, though panic situation is not yet arrived at.

It is hardly 4.63 metres remaining to reach the danger level of Anjune dam, situated in Keri village of Sattari, along the Chorla Ghat.

The water resources department officials have thus alerted the villages with loudspeaker announcement since it is continuously pouring for over four days now.

The water resources department has also sent notices to the village panchayats of Keri, Morlem and Parye of Sattari taluka and Karapur village of Bicholim taluka to alert the people.

Presently, the water at Anjune dam has reached the height of 88.57 metres while excess water would be released only after it reaches the danger mark of 93.2 metres.

The authorities plan to release excess water in Costi river and Walwanti river at the time of low tide.

The villagers have also been told to remain alert of sudden rise in water level of the rivers, at the time of low tide.

They have been thus told not to wash clothes, take bath, take cattle to water or cross the stream during low tide, after the water resources department decides to release the excess water.

The situation however has not arisen yet, said Bicholim Mamlatdar Gurudas Desai.
