New Delhi: After the water level in the Idukki reservoir reached its full capacity, the authorities on Thursday decided to open Cheruthoni shutters on a trial run later in the day.

The dam shutters are set to be opened after a gap of 26 years. As of now, shutter
number three will be opened for four hours to let water out.

Water level in the Idukki reservoir touched 2,398.80 feet Thursday morning. Heavy rainfall in Kerala has caused water level to rise in the dam. This is the biggest dam in the state. After the gates are opened by 50 CM, 50,000 litres will be ejected per second.

The district administration has made all arrangements to meet any eventuality. The 'orange alert' was sounded after the water level touched 2,395 feet last week, prior to the 'red alert' to be issued at 2,399 feet.

The full reservoir level of the dam is 2,403 feet. The authorities said people would be alerted when the water level touched 2,397 feet.
