mullaperiyar-dam

NEW DELHI: Tamil Nadu on Tuesday informed the Supreme Court that the floods that occurred in Kerala in 2018 and 2019 were not caused by the water that flowed from Maullaperiyar dam. It also stated that more quantity of water had flown to the Periyar river from dams in Kerala than the water from Mullaperiyar dam.

Tamil Nadu stated this in an affidavit submitted in response to the petition filed by Russell Joy demanding reduction in water level in the Mullaperiyar dam to 130 feet during monsoon season.
