The Chambal is fed by rain, and high water occurs in the summer. The mean flow rate is approximately 600 cu m per sec, with a maximum of approximately 20,000 cu m per sec. There are large hydroelectric complexes on the Chambal, including three power plants with a total output of 275 megawatts. The river also supplies an irrigation system that waters 440,000 hectares.
