Sea erosion was reported from some areas in Bada Yermal, Kaup, Kaipunjal, and Koteshwar in the district on Tuesday.

Deputy Commissioner Priyanka Mary Francis told
The Hindu
that these areas come under the seawall protection scheme of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), but tenders have been called only for some stretches.

She said there was reluctance among the personnel implementing the scheme to take up work in those stretches where tenders have not been called. Hence, she said, the Public Works Department in Bengaluru would be informed to direct the ADB scheme personnel to take up work in all the stretches.

Ms. Francis said work on putting up boulders to save the road at Kankoda in Udyavar-Padukere and other places was under way as usual.
