Umiam Lake almost full
Staff Correspondent
 SHILLONG, July 11 - Due to incessant rains, the water level of the Umiam Lake in Meghalaya has risen upto 3206.90 ft at 8 am today and any further rain would require release of water from the dam.

“In case heavy rainfall continues in the catchment area of the Umiam Dam, the reservoir may become full which will necessitate the opening of the gates of the Umiam Dam to allow the excess water to pass through,” officials said.

Therefore, all persons residing or working in the downstream of the Umiam Dam have been cautioned against engaging in any activity near the banks of the river Umiam.
