Water bodies, waterways in Chennai to be revived

The Tamil Nadu government has decided to revive water bodies in the Chennai metropolitan area (CMA) and the waterways around it. Through a master plan, the vanishing lakes in areas such as Ambattur of the city will be restored in a phased manner. A master plan for a phased restoration of these water bodies as well as waterways is all set to be prepared.

The Tamil Nadu Urban Infrastructure Financial Services (TNUIFSL) has called for consultants to prepare an overall plan to rejuvenate 214 kms of waterways, including Mambalam, Velachery and Kodungaiyur drains and Otteri Nullah, and the 42 water bodies spread across the CMA. While Chennai Rivers Restoration Trust will act as the nodal agency, TNUIFSL has been roped in for providing technical assistance for the ambitious project.
