The Thanneermukkom Bund (Thannermukkom Salt Water Barrier) was constructed as a part of the KuttanadDevelopment Scheme to prevent tidal action and intrusion of salt water into the Kuttanad low-lands across VembanadLake between Thannermukkom on south and Vechur on north. It is the largest mud regulator in India. This barrier essentially divides the lake into two parts - one with brackish water perennially and the other half with fresh water fed by the rivers draining in to the lake.
