By The Hindu 14-Aug-2019
Speaking after raising the shutters of the Mettur dam for irrigation in the delta region, Mr. Palaniswami said, “The State government is making efforts to conserve rainwater and avoid its run-off. We have allocated ₹1,000 crore to build check dams across canals and rivers in the State, of which work on projects to the tune of ₹600 crore is going on.”
He said five check dams would be built across the Cauvery, and that the State government would implement the Cauvery-Godavari river interlinking scheme. “The State would get 125 tmc of water through this scheme,” he added.
“Through lift irrigation, excess water from Mettur would be used to fill lakes and waterbodies in Gengavelli, Yercaud and Attur Assembly constituencies. Also, between Mettur and Karur, water would be carried to waterbodies on both sides through lift irrigation for the benefit of farmers. The project is estimated to cost ₹25,000 crore,” Mr. Palaniswami said.
