Moovattupuzha valley Project

This Project in Idukki district envisages the utilization of the tailrace water from the Idukki Hydroelectric Project and run-off from the free catchment upstream of Thodupuzha River, which is impounded by construction of a dam across Thodupuzha River at Malankara, 8 km upstream of Thodupuzha town. The water from the reservoir is directed through a system of canals to provide irrigation facilities to 19237 Ha (net) area of land in Ernakulam and Kottayam Districts. The Project was partially commissioned during 1994 after completing the head works and certain length of canal system.
