#CommieAHs in the Kerala Govt apparently bluffed to the court on #MullaPeriyar blaming TN?
Before we get into technicalities. The dam's height is 176 Feet. And water level allowed is 142 ft vide a SC order (throwing out KIWCA 2006 passed by Kerala
For all practical purposes the safe water storage level in #Mullaperiyar dam wass considered safe upto as 152 ft but later reduced to 142 ft (YES SAFE according to SC order of Feb 2006). Please note it is NOT CAPACITY of the dam.
TN conformed to the CWC directive to reduce the water level in #Mullaperiyar dam from 152 to 142 ft (and also further to 136.4') pending strengthening work. Post strengthening by TNPWD and as decided by Justice Anand Committee it was allowed upto 142'

If you have EVER wondered why the TN people have been so desperate to keep the #Mullaperiyar dam level at 142, here is the reason why. Vaigai dam's only way to fill up is through the 2300 cusecs of water it receives from MP dam.. It's filled to 69 out of 72 feet now! #Vaigai (1)
#Mullaperiyar water which just augments Periyar river in Kerala side, actually helps 5 big districts in TN side when it's allowed to fill the #VaigaiDam like it's done this year. Vaigai dam gets filled once in a decade, as a matter of fact without MP, it stands no chance (2)
Instead of getting swayed spuriously by the cunning characters like @jamewils who are propelled by Kerala gov & media, the courts should take a deep look at this Vaigai dam's significance to 5 driest districts of TN @ChennaiRains @sumanthraman #Mullaperiyar (3)

Nice to see @manoramanews try to be constructive instead of chasing TRPs. So refreshing #KeralaFloodRelief
General feel is that the administration is trying their best but the situation may slowly be spiralling out of their control #KeralaFloodRelief
Sad to see the rumour-mongering and passion-whipping over #Mullaperiyar. No cracks or leaks have developed, so no need for any panic

It started heavily even in Thiruvananthapuram. Heard that Mudirapuzha arm of Periyar receiving heavy rainfall and Madupetty Dam shutters are opened. Mullaperiyar is at 136.60 ft at 12noon today. #KeralaFloods
The water from Madupetty Dam will flow through Munnar to Kallarkutty and Lower Periyar Dams and will join Bhoothankettu Barrage in Periyar River..
Mudirapuzha arm of Periyar is used to receive heavy rainfall. This sub basin along with Mullaperiyar catchment created great havocs in 1924 and 1961 floods.
