In a meeting of Joint Water Regulatory Board (JWRB) of the inter-State Parambikulam Aliyar Project (PAP) here on Monday decided to release 0.3 tmcft water from the live storage of Tamil Nadu Sholayar reservoir to Kerala Sholayar at Chalakudipuzha to solve drinking water shortage in Thrissur and parts of Ernakulam district.

The JWRB members of Kerala also sought the release of water from the dead storage of Tamil Nadu Sholayar reservoir as the 0.3 tmcft to be released from the live storage would not meet the requirement of drinking water in the Chalakudy basin till the onset of the monsoon, expected in June.The JWRB members of Tamil Nadu said the request would be considered after obtaining permission of the Tamil Nadu government to release water from the dead storage of the Sholayar.

As per the PAP agreement, Tamil Nadu should ensure 12.3 tmcft water in the Kerala Sholayar a year.So far this year, Kerala received only 8.6 tmcft water to Kerala Sholayar as against 12.3 tmcft water in a water year ending in June. As per the agreement, Tamil Nadu should draw water only after ensuring Kerala its due share.
