Management board an ideal option to end Cauvery impasse: CWC chief [Polity]

  • Water management boards could be an ideal option for resolving water disputes between States, such as that between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka on the Cauvery waters, Central Water Commission (CWC) Chairman has said.
  • Cauvery water management board which will be formed by Centre on direction of Supreme Court, will have representatives from both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
  • Water storage and its conservation are key for resolving such crisis. We cannot think of bringing water security unless we are able to create enough capacity for its storage and release it as per requirement.
  • SC also directed the Karnataka government to release 6,000 cusecs of Cauvery water a day to Tamil Nadu till September 27.
