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

The hydropower with the capacity of generating 70 MW electricity is now producing the 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 electricity.

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

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