The Mid Marsyangdi Hydropower's energy production has declined with the receding water level in the Marsyangdi River.

Hydropower with the capacity of generating 70 MW of electricity is now producing 48MW electricity a day.

Hydropower centre's chief Pavan Basnet informed, "Till a month back, the water used to waste, but it has declined now, thereby reducing energy production. The declining trend will continue for two more months."

The power generation may decline as low as 26 MW.

There are two turbines each with the capacity to run 35 MW of electricity.

The construction of hydropower had begun in 2000 and was completed in 2008. It was constructed at the cost of Rs 27.20 billion.

In addition to this hydropower, other hydropowers are also witnessing a decline in power production.
