The Tamil Nadu Vivasayigal Sanga urged the administration to prevent sand mining on the Cauvery river between Mukkombu and Kambarasampettai. In a representative to Collector, Ayilai Siva Suriyan alleged efforts were on to mine sand from the Cauvery river at places such as Kadiyakurichi, Pazhur, Mutharasanallur and Kambarasampettai. Since the stretch of the river serves as the lifeline for farmers and also the source for several drinking water projects, sand mining should not allowed. He urged the government to prevent moves to erect a deep borewell at Ariyur on the Coleroon river.
