These pipelines would link the current water supply link at the village panchayat level.

A 240-lakh litre giant overhead water tank (OHT) would be constructed at Madam in Dharmapuri district as Master Balancing Reservoir (MBR) to store water for supply to the MBRs in blocks and panchayats. Fluoride content in the ground water in Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri districts is between seven to nine mg per litre.

A separate project called Fluoride Mitigation Project would be launched soon to identify the fluoride level in the ground water at various locations, Ms. Sahoo said.
