Mullaperiyar Dam Issue – IAS Synopsis
Why in NEWS?
Kerala government wants Tamil Nadu not to release a huge quantity of water in the peak hours from the Mullaperiyar dam as it causes heavy damage to the people living downstream.
Also Kerala said the water level should not go above 139 feet, the same as what the court had ordered on August 24, 2018, when the State was hit by floods. It is because the lives of 50 lakh people would be in danger if the water level in the dam is raised.
However, Tamil Nadu objected to this decision citing the Supreme Court judgments of 2006 and 2014, which fixed the maximum water level at 142 feet.
