Mullaperiyar dam is a masonry gravity dam across Periyar river in Kerala whose water is diverted to Vagai basin in Tamil Nadu. The dam break analysis, done using the DAMBRK model of U.S National Weather Service, shows that the dam is a threat to 35 lakh people in the downstream. Moreover, the dam is bound to collapse due to the deterioration of construction materials, frequent earthquakes in the area, emerging extreme floods owing to global warming and climate change impact and mechanical or human failure.
