The district administration assured that there was no reason to panic but opened three control rooms to monitor the situation and help people in case of emergency. According to official sources, two spillways of the dam have been opened as the water level rose by about five feet on Saturday. The flow of water towards Tamil Nadu, however, has been reduced as the reservoirs and canals of adjoining districts of the State are full on account of heavy rains in the past two days, sources said.
Meanwhile, a team of scientists are conducting inspection in the Mullaperiyar area to ascertain the impact of recent tremors on the dam. Kerala has escalated the demand for construction of a new dam at Mullaperiyar holding that the present structure posed a grim threat to nearly 3 million people, mainly in Idukki, Kottayam and Ernakulam districts.
Both the ruling Congress-led United Democratic Front and the opposition Left Democratic Front have also sought urgent Central intervention to resolve the tiff between the two States by persuading Tamil Nadu to agree to the idea of a new dam.

Sudarshan said wells have been found contaminated due to factors associated with urbanisation.
Sudarshan said that the consumption of contaminated water would result in severe gastroenterititis, stomach ache, dehydration and in some cases pus in the liver.

Two squads centred in Ernakulam and Muvattupuzha will be deployed to check water theft and stringent action will be taken against the guilty. Model of river NoyyalThe corner stone of the event would be a model of river Noyyal, showing how clear it was at the point of origin and how it was increasingly polluted as it reached the city and flowed towards the Noyyal Village in Erode District where it joined the Cauvery river.Explaining the reason for holding such an event, Ms. Sarala, a resident of Valluvar Street, said that the water quality was so bad that the residents would not be able to use it.
