Public well turns into 'lotus' after renovation in Palakkad
Palakkad: The public well in Karukodi started grabbing attention after it was renovated. Now the ordinary circle shaped sidewall of the well has been replaced with a beautiful lotus flower. The well was designed by a Thrissur native artist.
The well in the municipality ward 51 was renovated and designed into a lotus. Though the well had water even during summer, people could not collect water as its sidewalls were damaged. Local residents depend on this well whenever water pipe broke or water scarcity hits during summer.
Municipal councillor V Natesan said that the well was renovated as it could be helpful for many people. Rs 1 lakh was spent for the renovation works. Slush inside the well was removed and a bucket and pulley were set up to take water from it. They have plan to protect the well by covering it with metal ring.
