Are living storage readily available in 123 reservoirs monitored by the Central Drinking water Fee (CWC) was 86 per cent of their full dwell storage potential as on Thursday. This is ninety nine per cent of the level all through corresponding period past yr and a hundred and fifteen per cent of the ten-yr average.
The all round storage placement is much less than the corresponding period of past yr (one more bumper monsoon yr) but is superior than the ten-yr average, the CWC explained. This is even as the South-West monsoon has one more 5 times to go and a rain-driving minimal-pressure area is lively over the jap areas of the place.

Region-smart, the storage concentrations returned figures reflective of the monsoon general performance regionally with the North (Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Rajasthan) reporting 76 per cent of the full dwell storage potential (towards 90 per cent past yr and a ten-yr average of eighty five per cent). The monsoon has been deficient in Jammu & Kashmir, Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh.
In the East (Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal, Tripura and Nagaland), full dwell storage is 77.2 per cent of potential (towards 83 per cent past yr a ten-yr average of 76.eight per cent).

In contrast, in the West (Gujarat and Maharashtra), full dwell storage readily available is 93 per cent of potential (towards 91 per cent past yr and a ten-yr average of 73 per cent) thanks to the regionally exceptional monsoon. Gujarat has recorded substantial excessive rainfall of 60 per cent even though Maharashtra received higher than regular rainfall of a comparably decrease 18 per cent.
