  • The Ukkadam Periyakulam or Coimbatore Big Tank is part of the Coimbatore Anicut Channel. It belongs to The Noyyal River system, which has 20 anicuts and 28 tanks in Coimbatore District.

  • The Big Tank receives surplus water from the Selvachinthamani tank located in the upstream. It has a tank bed area of 320 acres and a storage capacity of 70 mcft. This tank used to brim with water, but silting, dumping of garbage and the proliferation of shrubs reduced its water capacity by a third

  • The Coimbatore Corporation, district administration, Siruthuli and we joined hands for the desilting initiative at the Big Tank.

  • Fencing of the entire 5.5-km-long bund is a must. Ultimately, we want to create a walkers’ path around the scenic tank and also plan to plant around 300 saplings on the bund. Once the logistics (especially watering) are in place.
