Here is our journey path, that is attained by Nallaramm.
Erumalan kuttai is located in Vellimalaipattinam village Panchayat in Thondamuthur block, Perur Taluk of Coimbatore District.
As per the FMB sketch of the village panchayat, 1.79 acres available for this pond which includes the bunds on the both sides and southern side cart road used by farmers to reach their lands.
More than 25% is covered with shrubs and abundant siltation. Hence the capacity of the pond has been reduced.
Rain water from the northern hills and runoff water from neighboring agricultural lands.
Surplus water reaches to Sukregounden Kuttai also called as Periya kuttai located in Vellimalaipattinam village about 1.5kms south from Erumalan kuttai.
The present capacity of the pond is about 1millon liters only, by desilting on an average of 3m for 0.70 acres, we can increase an additional capacity of 9 million liters. So the total capacity of the pond will be 10 million liters. This will ensure recharge of the wells and bore wells for about 1 km East, South and West of the pond. Also used as waterhole for domestic and wild animals.
