Bhavani River originates in the Nilgiris district (Ooty) of western Ghats in Tamil Nadu, India. During monsoon seasons the extensive rainfall in the Ooty ,Coonur and other upper reaches of Nilgiri hills reaches the Pillor dam(athikadavu), which is situated in the melur Reserve Forest range of western Ghats and finally the excess or surplus water gets wasted by draining to sea after travelling long and long course . This scheme is about channeling the surplus water from pillor dam during monsoon season to all the high and dry areas of Coimbatore Tirupur and Erode districts of Tamil Nadu, through artificially filling the excess water from the Pillor dam to ponds and lakes through existing streams and artificial channels. which would recharge back the water table from deep 1000 feet to just 50 feet from the ground level. This athikadavu avinashi scheme would bring revolutionary change in the field of agriculture, human livelihood and industries of the western part of the state of tamilnadu, India.
