CISF personnel clear wild growth on dry waterbody

They remove bushes and karuvelam trees on Surankulam

Over 150 Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel deployed at Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court and Madurai airport took part in an initiative to clear wild growth of bushes and karuvelam trees (Prosopis juliflora) on the dry bed of Surankulam on Saturday.

The CISF personnel started the work on the water body at Narasingam, a village in the vicinity of High Court Bench, from 7 a.m. and continued till 11.30 a.m, a release said. The plan was to identify supply and outlet channels of the kanmoi so that water could be retained and used for irrigation. The exercise was conducted in coordination with a national-level organisation, Tarun Bhagat Sangh, which works for rejuvenation of water bodies by employing both traditional and modern methods.
