PROLONGED MONSOON REVIVES WATERHOLES IN BANDIPUR

Why in news?

Of the 370 big and small waterholes, 85% are full while a few smaller ones have witnessed depletion

Details:

  • Expected to help wild animals beat water stress and tide over the greater part of the scorching summer that has already set in and will last till pre-monsoon showers lash the national park normally in mid-May
  • There are 37 solar-powered borewells that will function to replenish the waterholes periodically so that the water stress is minimised
  • In The M.M. Hills Wildlife Sanctuary, there are around 100 waterholes apart from two rivers — Cauvery and Palar — of which the Cauvery is perennial while the flow in Palar is expected to last till the end of March
  • Three ranges — Hugyam, M.M. Hills and Palar — in M.M. Hills division, which received rains recently and so the onset of water distress will be delayed and shorten the days of scarcity
