Due to poor rainfall during the last rainy season, and blockage due to encroachment in water input sources for Ramanayakkan Eri, the Eri has started drying up even during this month.
10 years ago, the Eri never goes dry, not because of sufficient rain fall but the water channels that feed water to the Eri were not encroached or blocked by that time.
As water in Eri helps to maintain ground water in Hosur and also help keep the weather cool in Hosur, water in the Eri was very important.
While previous MLAs repeatedly promised to bring Kelavarapalli water to the Eri, they never worked to make the promise come true.
This time, Balakrishnan, the elected MLA and who served as minister in Tamil Nadu government, took initiatives and brought the Then Pennai aaru water from Kelavarapalli dam to the Eri.
For the past couple of days, the water is being pumped to the Eri from 1 PM to 8 PM daily.
If anyone interested to see the inflow of water, the same can be seen by approaching the Eri bank via Gunam Hospital side road.
