WRD started an initiative to study to form instream storage capabilities along the Kosasthalaiyar River

The Water Resources Department has undertaken a feasibility study to enhance storage capabilities along the Kosasthalaiyar River. The objective is to conserve floodwater, which would effectively mitigate downstream flooding and replenish groundwater in nearby areas.

The study aims to identify suitable measures for optimizing water storage and management along the river. Officials believe that the proposed storage enhancements will have multiple benefits, including reducing the impact of floods and facilitating groundwater recharge.

The project reflects the department’s commitment to sustainable water resource management and its efforts to address the challenges of water scarcity and flood control. The findings of the feasibility study will guide future initiatives to improve storage infrastructure and enhance water management practices in the region.
