Hunza, June 23: FWO personnel have used dynamite to partially blast some boulders that were thought to be hindering erosion of the Hunza Lake spillway. The blasts have, however, not changed the situation significantly.
Water discharge through the spillway has risen to around 9000 Cusecs, stil 500 Cusecs lower than the water inflow.
Water level in the upstream valley kept rising due to relatively lower discharge through the spillway.
FWO has also moved an excavator to the spillway for taking part in the expansion exercise.
