Looks like now would be the perfect time to get in there and deepen it to hold more water for the future , sitting around praying for rain isn't going to do much .

That reservoir has been dug out so many times in the past, doubt they can go much deeper for geological reasons!

Smart from the officials. If it will not rain, the lack of water is Buddha´s/God´s will and has nothing to do with their bad water management.

Last time they did that (2007?) they hit a level that caused all sorts of problems. Had to abandon works as they were at risk of making the dam unable to hold water. Not long after that it did rain and they had to do rescues on the diggers that were getting covered by the water. Very much a case of "careful what you wish for..."

As you can see from the photo, much of that reservoir is only 1 meter deep.

Is that not as far down as they can go whereby it will hold water, bedrock or whatever they call it?
