Need to protect Panamarathupatti Lake
SALEM: The Panamarathupatti Lake, a picturesque water spread located near the city, will complete 100 years this year.
The lake, which has a massive water spread area of 2,139 acres, was built during the British period. The government in 1908 approved the scheme primarily to make it as a source of water supply. It was an engineering marvel in those days.
