Gujarat's lifeline like Narmada dam has started overflowing. This has brought year-long relief to large area that is served by the waters of Narmada canal.

According to state flood cell announcement, the Sardar Sarovar Narmada dam has started overflowing on 14th of August, 2011 morning.

The amount of water being released is: Vatrak river 1000 cusec, Sarbarmati River 1500 cusec, Banas River 1500 cusec, Rupen River 500 cusec, east drain 200 cusec, Vadhvana reservoir 50 cusec, Gota Godhavi 150 cusec, Pushpavati river 50 cusec. Low lying areas next to these rivers and water bodies are alerted. Narmada dam's crest level has risen to 121.92 metres.

State control room has alerted authorities of five districts namely Ahmedabad, Mahesana, Kheda, Patan and Vadodara. A moment not to be missed, Hon'ble CM were glad and tweeted the same day: “A moment to rejoice! Sardar Sarovar Dam has started overflowing again...this scene is always spectacular!”

“Sardar Sarovar Project of Gujarat has been one of the most talked about large dam projects in the world in recent decades. Mired in controversies, political mismanagement and financial troubles, I inherited the project in an atmosphere of despair and hopelessness. Managing the rehabilitation in coordination with other neighboring State Governments, satisfying the administrative and quasi-judicial mechanisms established by various judicial pronouncements and arranging for a high dose of finance on a continuous basis, was a task which consumed much of my attention during initial years”.
