After a detailed discussion and as mutually agreed by both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, the Krishna River Management Board (KRMB) has given its approval to release an additional two tmc of water to Nagarjuna Sagar Right Canal till the end of May to meet the drinking water needs of Guntur and Prakasam districts. The nod has been granted taking into consideration the Andhra Pradesh Water Resources Department's request to allow more water to the state as the domestic consumption increased due to Covid-19 and lockdown. In another order, dated May 20, KRMB denied Andhra to go ahead with the proposed Rayalaseema pumping scheme and upgradation of Pothireddypadu head regulator canal system as it will exceed the allocated share of water from Krishna basins to the state.
