Khadakwaasla Dam

Last month, we made a day trip to Splendor Country, on the backwaters of the Khadakwaasla Dam, which supplies water to Pune. The dam's gates had been opened to discharge the water, and it was a splendid site in the late evening, with the sun just going down.

In spite of a very poor beginning to the season, with around 80% deficiency by mid August, the rains quickly caught up, and Pune now has over 25% surplus for the year, with all dams 100% full. In Aug, some of the dams were below live storage.
