Mandi, July 7: Now as soon as the gates of Pandoh Dam open to release water, loud hooters will sound from Pandoh Dam to the entire Mandi city, due to which people will be alerted at the same time.

E. Ajaypal Singh said that the tender for this sensor based early warning system has been placed and it will be installed in the next two months. 6 hooters will be installed on the banks of Beas river from Pandoh Dam to Mandi city. This hooter will not only sound but there will also be a provision to broadcast the message through voice. The hooter will be omni directional which will be heard in all four directions. Earlier, this hooter used to sound only around Pandoh Dam and the market, but it had to be sounded manually. Now it is being installed with an automatic system.

Ajaypal Singh clarified that Pandoh Dam is not a storage dam but a diversion dam. 8500 cusecs of water is sent from here through the tunnel built to send water to Baggi, while the rest of the water has to be released into the Beas River. Therefore, people should stay away from the Beas River or all other rivers and streams during the rainy season because during this time there is no way of knowing when the water level will rise.

Ajaypal Singh said that work is going on the proposal to install security wall in the residential areas near Pandoh. Its drawing has been made and soon it will be sent for final approval. After the final approval, this work will be started as soon as the funds are approved. It is estimated that this project is going to cost 8 to 10 crores.

He said that the management is also considering the part-time workers in BBMB and a decision will be taken on this soon.

On the 48th foundation day, emotional tributes were paid to those who were martyred during the construction of the BSL project.
