On 24th November 2017, early morning around 5 A.M, a crack was developed at Gate number one at Durgapur Barrage.
The pressure of water is assumed to have created this crack on the gate.
According to the sources, people are fearing that this crack may increase in size if the maintenance is delayed.

There are even chances of the breaking of the entire gate all at once due to the immense pressure of water on the gates.
If this happens, it would again cause flood in the low lying areas.
DVC workers have came to the spot and repair work have already started.
They have assured that even if the lock gate breaks, there will be no such damage.
