Water Supply

Sathanur Dam in Tiruvannamalai District was constructed in 1958 and is about 30 kms from the town of Tiruvannamalai and it one of the main sources of freshwater in the District.

It is positioned across the Thenpennai River in Chengam Taluk among Chennakesava Hills and has a capacity of 7321 million cubic feet (Full level 119 feet).

It is famous as a tourist spot and also as the venue for many Indian movie shoots. Its actually a lovely drive from Tiruvannamalai as it takes one through many rustic villages and agricultural lands.
