Panshet and Khadakwasla Dam Failure results in a Major Flood in the city of Pune Slide 10 FLOOD SCENARIO IN PUNE Slide 11 History of Floods in Pune Discharge in Cumecs Years Slide 12 Flood Frequency Analysis was conducted for 1940 to 2007 of the maximum discharge data from Khadakwasla The 1958 flood with a magnitude of 3211 cumecs is the highest flood recorded. The mean annual peak flood is about 1165 cumecs. Every decade had recorded one severe flood during the last six decades (1944, 1958, 1961, 1976, 1976, 1983, 1997 and 2005). The post 1961 period shows a significant decline in the peak flood magnitudes and increase in the flood variability. This could be attributed to the increased control of dams located on the river, such as Temghar and Varasgaon that were constructed during the post-1961 period.
