On Sunday, a break was made in the dyke of Sindh’s Manchhar Lake to release pressure after the water level reached a “hazardous level” on Saturday.
Jamal Mangan, the special secretary for irrigation, identified the cut as being in RD-14 Yusuf Bagh and referred to it as a “relief cut.”
The official, who spoke with on the phone, was unable to assess the size of the incision because he had not yet visited the location.
Mahesh Kumar, an engineer at Mancharr Lake, confirmed the development and the cut’s location and explained that it had been made because the lake’s water level had started to rise toward populated areas.
The river Indus, which is already experiencing a high flood, the peak of which has already gone through Sukkur Barrage, will eventually be reached by the water that will be released from the lake at RD-14.
Officials in charge of irrigation currently anticipate that the river will begin taking in water from the lake.
Due to the lake’s dyke being in critical condition since last evening, officials decided to make the cut.
Considerable winds are causing strong wave-wash action, according to superintending engineer Mukhtar Abro.
A fisherman named Hyder claimed that the cut at RA-14 was “little in size” and that once the flow subsided, water would enter the river.
He claimed that the cut had been made close to Arzi Goth and was headed toward Sehwan.
Mahesh Kumar, an engineer at Mancharr Lake, acknowledged the development and the cut’s position and explained that it had been made since the lake’s water level had started to rise into residential areas.
According to Sindh Information Sharjeel Inam Memon, the embankment cut was made on the advice of experts to save the district towns of Sehwan and Bhan Saeedabad.
