TN govt to emulate Japanese water management techniques

The Tamil Nadu water works department is in the process of preparing a comprehensive report on water management in the line of Japanese water management techniques.

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) is supporting the efforts of the Tamil Nadu water works department. JICA is compiling a report on flood mitigation in Tamil Nadu while the water works department is in the process of bringing out a permanent flood mitigation programme.

Officials of the water works department were in Tokyo and other parts of Japan to have a direct input on the flood mitigation techniques employed in that country.

The Japanese usage of proper legal frameworks in handling water supply will also be incorporated by the water resources department, officials said.
