Geotextile tube walls to be set up in Kerala
A meeting of people’s representatives and senior revenue department officials in Kerala’s Fort Kochi recently decided to immediately set up geotextile tube walls at Companyppady, Bazaar and Velankanni North in Chellanam panchayat to stop further erosion of the shores and prevent flooding of homes. Those are stretches in the panchayat worst hit by erosion.

The geotextile tube work had been temporarily called off and the irrigation department had decided to call for fresh tenders to resume the work in September. However, the latest meeting decided to accelerate the project, according to Indian media reports.

A fortnight of sea swells and high waves had flooded about 60 homes there. (DS)
