Coimbatore, the Mancehster of South India is situated close to the western ghat and is renowned for its Siruvani water. It is the reputed sweet water from the Muthikulam bio-diversity area which is part of the Attapadi forests of Nilgiri Biosphere.

The city is facing drought like conditions. This situation has not only affected drinking water supply to Coimbatore but also the drinking water availability of a large number of "wild animals, including elephants."

Most of these surrounding dams (Siruvani, Pillor, Aliyar) have dried up as early as January even before the onset of Summer. We request the TN government to use this timeframe to "desilt" (Thoor var) dams within their control and also request the kerala government to  take up "desilting" work at sirvuani dam on a warfooting.

This would result in better storage and water supply to the city in the long run. Please sign and support
