Bajpe, Sep 28, 2018: The water level at the vented dam built under Malavoor multi-village drinking water project has dropped and possibly a scenario of lack of drinking water may arise.
The difference in water level between the drinking water in the dam and the flowing backwater (salty) is only a foot. If the gates of the vented dam are not placed as soon as possible, there is a possibility, the salt water from the back water will seep into the drinking water in the dam.
Initially, the Malavoor multi village drinking water project was limited to the 11 villages of 7 Gram Panchayats (GP). Later the drinking water project was extended to 14 villages including Kolambe Souharda Nagara, Delanthabettu and others.
