Water released from Mettur dam

Water released from Mettur dam

TN govt. decided to release water only after the Karnataka government let out water from Krishnarajasagar and Kabini reservoirs on September 6. The sluices of Stanley Reservoir in Mettur were opened for commencing farm activities in the delta districts on Tuesday. Five State Ministers — Edappadi K. Palaniswami, P. Thangamani, V. Saroja, K.C. Karppannan and M. R. Vijayabhaskar participated in the function and opened the sluices.

Though it is customary to release water on June 12 every year, the same was postponed this year due to poor storage. The State government decided to release water only after the Karnataka government let out water from Krishnarajasagar and Kabini reservoirs on September 6 on the direction of Supreme Court. This is the 83rd year that water is being released from Mettur Dam since it was constructed in 1934.
