Project Description

Ichambadi Anicut System is a diversion Anicut built across the Pennaiyar River in the downstream of Krishnagirir Reservoir Dam situated in Harur and Uthangarai Taluks in Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri Districts of Tamilnadu. Pennaiyar River flows from Karnataka and enters Tamilnadu at about 50 km north west of Bagalur village of Hosur Taluk in Krishnagirir District. The source of water for the Ichambadi Anicut system is the surplus water of the Krishnagirir Reservoir dam which has capacity of 1666.29 Mcft and catchment area of 5426 Sq.km. There is no storage structure at the Anicut, the river water is diverted into the two main canals namely Right Main Canal (RMC) and Left Main Canal (LMC) having command area of 1214.57 ha. and 1315.80 ha. respectively. The Length of RMC is 30.39 Km and LMC is 26.15 Km. The total Cultural Command Area is 2530.37 ha. The catchment Area of Ichambadi Anicut is 144.17 sq.km. The Ichambadi Anicut project was constructed during the year 1983.
