TNPSC Current Affairs - May 2018 by TNPSC Guru

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami said that TN government will implement Athikadavu - Avinashi project by its own, if there is no support from Centre.

Athikadavu - Avinashi project aims to recharge ground water level as well as solving drinking water problem, by channelling the surplus water from Pilloor Dam (Athikadavu) during monsoon season to all the dry regions of Coimbatore, Erode mainly in Avinashi and Perundurai.

About Athikadavu-Avinashi Project: 
  • During monsoon seasons because of extensive rainfall in Niligirs District, River Bhavani  gets extensive rainfall which cause excess of water to reach Pilloor Dam located in Athikadavu in  Melur reserve forest Range, Coimbatore.
  • But the High and Dry areas of Coimbatore lack rainfall, so there was excessive bore well digging and erratic pumping of water by the population.
  • Due to this water table in the region has gone down tremendously from 600 to 1500 ft below the level.
  • So to get back the water level in dry areas, Athikadavu - Avinashi project is going to implement by channelling the surplus water from Pilloor Dam (Athikadavu) during monsoon season to all the dry regions of Coimbatore, Erode mainly in Avinashi and Perundurai.
  • Once the Project get implemented , it would recharge back the water table from Deep 1500 feet to just 50 feet from the ground level.
  • It also solve the drinking water problem facing in these regions.          
Fact:
Kundah hydro-electric power house is located in Pilloor Dam.
