It is a tricky business to track accurately the flow of Sharavathi, especially when you are at site. (Imagine... What if Sharavathi was a major river? How many times would I have chased the wild goose?!) The reservoirs further complicate the issue; water would seem to be flowing in from everywhere, and staying there. The dynamics of flowing water is completely lost here, overtaken by tranquility! I am speaking about the Talakalale Balancing Reservoir which receives water from Linganamakki Dam through an underground tunnel of about 4.3 km length, that opens out at Bidaruru, just off Kargal - Bhatkal road. This Reservoir feeds the Mahatma Gandhi Power Project at Jog Falls. These parts are off limits for the general public due to security reasons.
