For the 1st time this year, the Veeranam Lake, one of the important water resources for the Chennai Metro City is full to the brim!

Veeranam Lake, spread over an area of 4 sq km, is located in the Kattumannar Koil area in Cuddalore district

The water released from the Mettur dam reaches the Veeranam lake via Kallanai Keezhanai. As there was an acute shortfall in the rainwater, the Veeranam lake tended to dry up. So, 8000 cf of water was released from Mettur dam on 30th March. Through the route of Kallanai Keezhanai, 2000 cft of water was flowing into the Veeranam Lake from the early morning. Thus, the water level in the lake started rising gradually.

S a result, for the 1st time this year, the Veeranam Lake reached its full capacity of 47.5. 59cft of water is released from the lake for the Chennai Meto City water distribution.
