In the wake of heavy rains in the upper regions, Godavari river is overflowing, causing the water level to rise in Dowleswaram barrage in Rajahmahendravaram in East Godavari district. The officials lifted 175 gates of the barrage to let out the water into the sea. Nearly 3.45 lakh cusecs of water is being released. However, the crop scene in Central, Eastern and Southern Delta region looks optimistic as adequate water is available for irrigation.
