Cyclone Gaja brings hope, the city may overcome water shortage

  • November 19, 2018 - Madurai the energetic city of Tamil Nadu had faced issues over water supply. Cyclone Gaja this year has brought some hope for the people of Madurai. As per the information available, the recent rains have filled the cities water tanks. Talking about one of such water tanks ‘Kodikulam’ filled after 15 years to its full capacity. This water tank became a hot spot for morning joggers and walkers in the city often visiting this spot on daily basis. Kodikulam water tank was the main source of water supply to the village Kodikulam nearly two decades ago but had become a garbage dumping point due to no water. It seems this time the full capacity of Kodikulam water tank might help the population of Madurai to cope with the summers next year even in a short water supply if the rainfall is short.
