TARBELA: The power generation at Tarbela Dam on Monday reduced to 2,220MW, while the water level of the reservoir after a slight increase reached 1,464.58 feet, officials said.

The Tarbela Dam officials said today the water inflow increased to 221,000 cusecs due to heavy downpour, while the outflow was 135,000 cusecs and the water level of the reservoir remained at 1,464.58 feet.

Today 14 power generation plants of the 17 have produced only 2,220MW, as the plants were working with low capacity and three of them were shut down.

It was also disclosed that 800 cusecs of water were released for Pehur High-Level Canal (PHLC) to supply water to some areas of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa for irrigation purposes.

Water inflow in the dam also increased during the last few days, owing to the snow and melting of glaciers caused by the scorching heat and heavy downpour in the Hazara Division.

The water level in the Dam reservoir would increase soon, which would also raise the power generation at the dam.
