HIGHLIGHTS

  • Concrete structure on Kodiveri Dam was washed away due to heavy rain
  • The concrete floor was built at a cost of Rs 2.65 crore
  • 25,000 cubic feet of excess water was released into the Bhavani river
A 100-metre concrete structure on Kodiveri Dam was washed away due to heavy rainfall in Erode district of Tamil Nadu. The concrete structure was built at a cost of Rs 2.65 crore during the previous AIADMK government.
The Kodiveri dam is located on the Bhavani river near Sathyamangalam in Tamil Nadu and is a much liked tourist attraction. The concrete floor was built at the deep end of the river to prevent untoward incidents while tourists and locals took a dip in the river.

The catchment area of Bhavanisagar dam reached its full capacity a few days ago due to heavy rains triggered by the southwest monsoon. As a result, 25,000 cubic feet of excess water was released into the Bhavani river.

However, the water flowed out of the Kodiveri dam and the heavy rocks carried by the flood fell, breaking the sluice gate in the central part.

With the concrete structure washed away, blocks of concrete debris were found in the region, which are being removed using JCB vehicles.
