The Comeback Story of a Pond from a Cesspool. The Thirumullaivoyal Pond.

அம்பத்தூர்-அவாடி பிரதான சாலையில் அமைந்துள்ள திருமுல்லைவாயல் குளம், பரபரப்பான பகுதியில் அமைந்துள்ளது. ஒரு காலத்தில், அழகான பூக்கள் நிறைந்த இக்குளம் வழிப்போக்கர்களின் தாகத்தைத் தணித்தது, இன்று அது கழிவுநீர் நிரப்பப்பட்ட ஒரு குட்டையாக மாறியுள்ளது.

The Thirumullaivoyal Pond, located on the Ambattur-Avadi Main Road, is peacefully nestled in a busy and happening neighborhood. Once a pond that quenched the passer-by’s thirst, filled with beautiful flowers has today turned into a cesspool, filled with sewage.

With administrative support from the Tiruvallur District Collectorate, Tmt. Mageswari Ravikumar IAS (former collector), this project was taken under the Mummari Project, the Avadi Municipal Corporation, and funding support from the Godrej Group, E.F.I took on the restoration of the Thirumullaivoyal Pond.

The restoration had unearthed mounds of trash, cleaned, deepened and revived a water body that once was a drinking source. Take a look at this detailed report of all that happened in this eco-restoration.

Check out what the people had to say about this eco-restoration!

We thank all the volunteers and local residents who supported this restoration effort!
