As per report Parts of Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary in Mandya were left inundated on Wednesday after water was released from the Krishnarajasagara reservoir. Accordingly the bird sanctuary, located on the banks of the Cauvery River, is home to as many as 60,000 migratory birds. Meanwhile an official at the sanctuary said many islands in the sanctuary have been submerged and we have decided to close down operations.



Furthermore boat rides too have been stopped since August 9 as a precaution. Moreover a flood alert was issued for areas along the banks of the River Cauvery after heavy rains forced the Karnataka government to release water from the Kabini and KRS reservoirs. Hence in total, over 1,20,000 cusecs of water was released from the two reservoirs.

Moreover at 6 am on Wednesday morning, the Central Water Commission said that the water levels of the Cauvery in Mysuru district were flowing above high flood level (HFL). As per report at Chunchunkatte, the water level was recorded at 757.95ft while the HFL is at 757.45ft, while in T Narsipur the water level was 640.64ft while the HFL is 642.40. Moreover this caused a ripple effect in the downstream, low lying areas of the reservoir, flooding several fields along the river as well as the Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary.
