Modak Sagar, one of the six reservoirs which supply water to Mumbai, started overflowing this afternoon following incessant rains in the catchment area, a civic official said.

Tulsi, another of these lakes, had become full some days ago. Modak Sagar on the Vaitarna river in Thane district, which has a total storage capacity of 15.8 TMC, overflowed today, said an official of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation.

Six reservoirs in the surrounding region -- Bhatsa, Upper Vaitarna, Middle Vaitarna, Tansa, Modak Sagar and Tulsi -- supply water to the megapolis.

The catchment areas of all six dams have received more than 1,000 mm rain so far this monsoon, the official said. If the rains continued in the same way, remaining reservoirs would become full soon, he said.
