The Varattupallam reservoir is located at Varattupallam near Anthiyur of Tamil Nadu. The Varattupallam reservoir is eventually depleting due to failure of rain in Bargur hill area. The reservoir was designed several years ago with the purpose to store rainwater coming from Bargur, Thamaraikarai, Kalmaduvupallam, Thattakarai, Mamarathupallam and other areas in the Bargur forest areas. The Varattupallam reservoir usually stores more than 30 feet of water, with a capacity of about 3 TMCFT of water. During the rainy season, when the reservoir contains enough water, animals like elephants, deer and other wild animals visit this area to have their fill of water.
The water of The Varattupallam reservoir is primarily used for irrigation of crop in Varattupallam, Chellampalayam, Kakkayanaure, Kallimadaikuttai, Kinathadi and Vattakadu areas. Poor rainfall in the Bargur forest area has necessitated the continuous water flow into the reservoir from the river.
