Restoration of TS Canal: A Case Study
Restoration, Environmental Effects, Groundwater, Navigation.
The present study addresses the need of resurrecting navigation through one of the oldest and historically significant inland waterways of our nation, the TS canal. Even though restoration projects were being proposed by various government agencies in the past, significant milestones remain to be encountered in this field.The study is aimed at the engineering aspects of restoration of the Kollam-Eravipuram stretch of the TS canal along with a generalised public opinion about the same. It is also intended to deal with the harmful social and being posed by the poor quality of water in nearby aquifers as a result of groundwater intrusion through the canal water body.The study is designed to pin point the major factors that have led to the pathetic condition of the canal as seen today. On the basis of this, a set of recommendations and proposals are enlisted for ensuring restoration of inland navigation in a safe and eco-friendly manner through the same. A suitable waste water treatment plant is also being suggested with its design criteria.
