Water spread status of major reservoirs in the country

NRSC monitors the status of all water bodies in the country using satellite images and provide water spread area information for every fortnight through Bhuvan thematic services (Click here and select "Water Bodies" under "Select Theme" option). The recent such information derived from Resourcesat-2 AWiFS and RISAT-1 MRS data for the period 15-30 April, 2016 is published on Bhuvan Geo-Platform under Water Body Information System (WBIS). The geospatial tool provides (i) water spread area, (ii) graphical representation of multi-temporal water spread (since 2012) and (iii) monthly scenarios. The temporal water spread for some of the reservoirs is shown below.

Note

  • The information provided is only surface spread and not the capacity
