Chennai: Andhra Pradesh is constructing only a bridge and not any check dam across the Palar river, Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami told the Tamil Nadu Assembly on Wednesday, while giving an assurance that every step would be taken to ensure that free flow of water from the river is maintained to help farmers. Replying to a question posed by DMK MLA 'Thangam' Thennarasu, Mr Palaniswami said a high-level team from PWD department is inspecting the site where Andhra Pradesh was said to be constructing a check dam across Kusa river, a tributary of Palar, and concluded that only a bridge was being built.  "Since only a bridge is being built, there will be no interruption in the flow of water to farmers in Tamil Nadu.

Chennai: Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami on Wednesday announced a scheme to construct check dams and anicuts worth Rs 1,000 crores to be implemented in three years to improve the ground water table and to supply water from rivers to lakes. In the current year, 10 anicuts and 75 check dams would come up at an estimated cost of Rs 350 crores, he said while replying to the debate on demand for grants to the PWD ministry which is under him. On the Cauvery issue, Palaniswami said the case would come up for hearing in the Supreme Court on July 11 and the state government would insist on the formation of the Cauvery Management Board.

No Kusa dam, Andhra Pradesh CM told 17.6.2017
CHENNAI: Lodging Tamil Nadu’s “strong protest” against construction of a check dam across the inter-state Kosasthalaiyar in Chitoor district, Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami wrote to his Andhra Pradesh counterpart, N Chandrababu Naidu, to immediately stop construction activities since the move has caused “great alarm and apprehension” among farmers. In his letter, Mr Palaniswami reminded Mr Naidu that Andhra Pradesh should have consulted and obtained prior consent of the lower riparian State of Tamil Nadu before commencing any new work across the river Kusa, a sub-tributary of the Kosasthalaiyar river or in any stream/channel taking off from it. “This action of the authorities in Andhra Pradesh will affect the natural flow in the stream or channel taking off from it and would obstruct the flow to the Veligaram tank in the lower riparian State of Tamil Nadu,” the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister told his AP counterpart on Friday. Contending that the “unilateral action” of the authorities in Andhra Pradesh ...
