Kerala Floods: Ecologists say 'development' led to disaster 19.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Even as Kerala is facing its worst ever monsoon floods, environmentalists call it as a man-made disaster citing the government's failure on the environmental policy front. They attributed the devastating floods and landslides to the extensive quarrying, mining, mushrooming of high-rises on the hillside as part of tourism and illegal encroachment of forestland by private parties. All the 14 districts in the state have been placed under red alert, after 35 out of the 39 dams including Mullaperiyar, Cheruthoni, part of Idukki reservoir and Idamalayar had to be opened at the same time for the first time. The water level crossed dangerous levels which led to flooding in the downstream areas. People were stranded after several areas in the hilly districts were cut off due to landslides. The data from the Indian Meteorological Department shows that Kerala received 2,087.67 mm of rain from June 1 to August 15—a departure of nearly 30 per cent from the 3,368 mm rain in 1924. Environmentalists cited the extensive ...

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice D Y Chandrachud asked Kerala and Tamil Nadu to abide by the directions given by NCMC on the rehabilitation of displaced people and the reduction of water level from the existing 142 feet to 139 feet at the dam.
