    Abstract :

    Rainfall is the important element of Indian economy. Although the monsoons effect most part of India, the amount of rainfall varies from heavy to scanty on different parts. There is great regional and temporal variation in the distribution of rainfall. Over 80% of the annual rainfall is received in the four rainy months of June to September. The average annual rainfall is about 125 cm, but it has great spatial variations. This lead to excess rainfall in one region which results the flood and water shortage in other region which leads to the drought in other region. The interlinking project are envisaged with aim to transfer the water from the water surplus region the water deficit region. The Ponnaiyar (Nedungal Anicut) - Palar Intra-state Link Project of Tamil Nadu envisages diversion of 99 Mm3 of flood water of Ponnaiyar river available at Krishnagiri dam to the Palar River. The main objective of the link Project is to improve the Groundwater potential to stabilize the existing command area and stabilize the enroute command areas of Tamil Nadu state. The geotechnical investigation for the proposed Ponnaiyar (Nedungal Anicut) - Palar Intra-state Link Project was undertaken by CSMRS. The paper presents the foundation investigations carried out for the CD structures proposed along the canal alignment of the proposed link canal.
