SHILLONG, Aug 11: The Chief Engineer (C), Maintenance & Small Hydro, MePGCL, Shillong has informed that due to incessant rain during the last few days, the water level of the Umiam Reservoir as on August 11, 2017 at 10 AM is 3214.02 ft and likely to cross the danger level of 3215 ft.

It is apprehended that in case rainfall continues in the catchment area of the Umiam Dam, the reservoir may become full which would necessitate the opening of the gates of the Umiam Dam to allow the flood to pass through.
