Mandakini River flowing through great Himalayas, had a devastating flood in July 2013. Phata Hydropower project is located just at the foothills of Kedarnath on Mandakini River. Phata dam was the first major structure, which got heavily damaged due to these unprecedented floods. Phata run-off-the-river spillway dam, a 76 MW Hydropower project, is now all set for the re-construction, after the physical model studies confirmed its suitability. Model is built on a physical scale of 1:35. The river is very steep at the location of dam having a slope in order of 1:8, vertical to horizontal. The hydraulic designs, discharging capacity, dam layout, as well as power intake operations were optimized in the model.
