The construction of a 125-m-high earth-and-rock-fill dam across the river Ramganga near Kalagarh was completed in early 1974. Its reservoir with a capacity of 2.49 × 109 m3 was partially filled during the 1974 summer monsoon. A detailed seismicity study has been made using the data from 2 month's microearthquake recording to determine the possible effect of reservoir filling. No interrelationship of seismic activity and reservoir filling has been found.
