Aathupalayam Dam, Karur

#230 of 241 in Parks in Tamil Nadu
Dam · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
The Aathupalayam Dam is situated in Karvazhi village of K.Paramathi taluk in Karur district. The parched aycut area has not been receiving supplies as the Aathupalayam reservoir had become a storage tank for Orathuppalayam polluted water flowing down the River Noyyal over the past few years.

The storage facility was meant to harness excess flood water flowing down River Noyyal and draining from the Lower Bhavani Project (LBP) canal to irrigate more than 19,000 acres in Karur district. Usually the excess LBP water flows down the Malayathu Palayam banks only between September and December.
