Sources said that Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran will launch the imported German ‘Moving Boat’, which will clean up the man-made canal plagued with water weeds.
A trial run is under way at Veli-Akkulam Lake.
A trial run was held on Wednesday and by next week we will launch in Parvathy Puthanar.
“The canal needs regular clean-up and hence we have decided to procure this German machine.
If the trial run is successful we would procure more which would be deployed at strategic points along Kovalam to Bekal coastal waterway,” said an official.
