Amaravathi Reservoir is
created by a dam in the district of Coimbatore, India. The Government
had ordered release of 1,500 cusecs from Monday for drinking water needs
of Karur town and 300 cusecs for irrigation of 9,000 acres in Udumalpet
taluk from August 11, but the incessant rains pushed the early release
of surplus water. Amaravathy is 25 Kms from Thirumoorthy Dam.
