TIRUPPUR: Noyyal river has recently develop into a fishing place for locals right after the set up of Widespread Effluent Therapy Plants (CETP) became necessary for factories in 2011. The Full Dissolved Solids(TDS) amount in the Noyyal river has been reduced to 1,500-2,000 milligramme for every litre in the earlier two a long time.
Explaining the effluent discharge in the Noyyal river, Tamil Nadu Science Discussion board(Government member) A Eswaran claimed, “For much more than two decades, Tiruppur lost the Noyyal river to effluent from dyeing units. At that time there was no fish in the river. We had located modest dead fishes floating on the banks of the Noyyal river.
But, it all modified immediately after the implementation of CEPT in 2011, and the drinking water good quality commenced improving from 2015. We identified small fishes in 2020, and at the moment, fishes from Samalapuram, Andipalayam, Anaipalayam, Kasipalayam, and Kottankanni ponds are slowly and gradually coming to the Noyyal river. It is just one of the most important beneficial news for the inhabitants of Tiruppur.”

I am a every day wager at a garment unit, and fishing is a passion. Just lately, I caught six kilogramme of fish. I took three kilogramme of it household and bought the rest at`100 for every kilogramme. A handful of times ago, my friend caught much more than 50 kilogramme of fish and he marketed all of it at Thennampalayam market. Given that this fetches very good money, numerous everyday wagers arrive here on the weekends.”
