Belthangady: As a result of the overflowing of the Mrityunjaya river recently, the Kadambali vented dam of Mundaje has accumulated a lot of silt and waste, and many acres of plantations in the nearby Mundrupadi area have also been flooded and the plantations have become waste.

Minor Irrigation Department Engineer Rakesh and his team inspected this on Monday Septrmber 12.

Since July this year, this vented dam has been filled with excessive silt, which was cleared in mid-August under the leadership of the vented dam management team.

Within two days of the clearing, the water in the rivers rose again and the mud and waste got stuck. Two or three times in the first and second week of September, there was.high water level in the river. Due to the obstruction of the flow of river water due to the dams, the agricultural gardens of Mundrupadi were completely flooded and the dams and wastes also fell into the gardens.

Locals Vasudeva Gokhale, Avinash Gokhale, Srinivasa Gokhale, Parikshit, Shashanka Marathe and others were present and gave details about the problems.

Engineer Rakesh said that the Dharmasthala Shaurya Disaster Management team will clear the silt stuck in the vented dam from today in cooperation with the locals and the members of the vented dam management committee. Since there is no road system to take vehicles and machinery to the area where the vented dam is located, it is imperative that the evacuation work is carried out using human power.
