Lifting of waters from Kannepally pump house was going on and the officials succeeded in procuring 11 tmc waters from Pranahitha floodwaters in 10 days using five motors despite rainfall shortage. “Though Godavari river has a low level of waters, we could impound 11 tmc waters, which can irrigate one lakh acres”, he said.
