There are two sources of drinking water for Coimbatore City: Siruvani and Pillur. The city receives about 70 million litres per day (MLD) of water supply from the Siruvani scheme and 35 MLD from the Pillur scheme (1999).The entire supply of water from Siruvani is delivered by gravity whereas the Pillur scheme requires pumping.

The project consists of a series of dams interconnected by tunnels and canals for harnessing the Parambikulam, Aliyar, Nirar, Sholiyar, Thunakadavu, Thekkadi and Palar Water fallrivers, lying at various elevations, for irrigation and power generation. The scheme is an outstanding example of engineering skill. It is located in the Anamalai range.
