Presently 30,000 Acers of ayacut is under cultivation.
The two canals are taken out from the two flanks of dam with a discharge of 330 cusecs (each canal) with 3 Vents of size 0.91m x 1.83m with sill level of +185.930 (+610.00 Feet) with a canal section of 5.49m x 1.83m.
The project is having 30 gates for discharge of maximum surplus flood of 4 lakhs cusecs.
