Magic in Ennore Creek

Ennore Fisherfolk prevail. Thanks to a responsive administration (Disaster Relief Commissioner Mr. Satyagopal, IAS), the Kosasthalaiyar and Ennore Creek are getting a new lease of life. In September, Ennore fisherfolk and Chennai-based organisations and individuals urged the Government to remove certain encroachments in Buckingham Canal and Ennore Creek to reduce flooding risk in North Chennai. To its credit, the Government of Tamil Nadu has begun implementing some of the recommended actions. The All Ennore Fishing Village Coalition and the Coastal Resource Centre have conveyed their appreciation to the State Disaster Relief Commissioner and have offered to submit a monitoring report on the quality of remediation works carried out by TANGEDCO, Kamarajar Port and NTECL.
