Veeranam Lake to be full in few days due to Chennai Rains – Will this Solve Water Problem in Chennai?

veeranam lake full september 2019

The wind pattern remains the same and Kancheepuram Thiruvallur Chengalpattu zone remains in the hot spot for rains again. The days before formation of low pressure area are the best days for Convergence in KTC because of its unique location and convex curvature. The low formation is taking time and as a result our chance of rains remain inspite of cloudy start to the day and due to cloudy start, we cant get evening rains like yesterday. Hope we fall in the path of rains late at night.

Other regions of Sathy-Salem, Madurai-Sivaganga-Pudukottai. Today for a change, Trichy and parts of Thanjavur has chance too. Pondy and Cuddalore too might get rains. Remember all are not widespread. Some parts of district will get rains while others wont.

Because of these heavy rains Veeranam lake will be filled in few more days as this lake is the main source of water supply to Chennai city it might solve the issue of water scarcity to some extent. We will need more rains and Rain water harvesting is a must to provide continuous source of water for people of Chennai.
