THIRUVANANATHAPURAM: A structural stability analysis of the Mullaperiyar dam conducted by the Department of Earthquake Engineering of the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkie, has concluded that the main Mullaperiyar dam and the baby dam are likely to face damage in the event of an earthquake. Such damage may lead to failure of the dam.

KOLLAM: The National Board for Wildlife Protection under the Union Environment and Forest Department has accorded sanction to conduct survey and investigation work for the construction of a new dam at Mullaperiyar.

CHIEF Minister M Karunanidhi on Thursday sought Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's intervention to withdraw the decision to allow land survey for a new Mullaiperiyar dam. He said the State Government was forced to get a stay on the permission given to Kerala to undertake survey for the dam, as the Union Environment Ministry had erred in its decision.
