 Forebay (Sluice valve) at Tehok Mini Hydroelectric project under Mon district had reportedly burst on October 6, 2020 at around 2:30pm.

Informing this in a statement, the convenor of welfare society Tehok Mini Hydro Electric, W Chennyeim Konyak has, therefore, appealed to the power department to repair and renovate the forebay at the earliest.

1MW Tehok mini hydroelectric project was constructed and commissioned on January 29, 2016 after 25 years of seeking the project, Konyak said, adding that power has been supplied since January 29, 2019.

A video provided by convenor showed water gushing out in the form of a massive fountain, which rose up to several feet into the sky, and inundating the machine room and surrounding area.
