This park requires 6.00 Lakhs liters of water per day to meet the demand towards the cleaning of 85 animal houses, providing drinking water to the animals, visitors, staff members, filling up wet moats and irrigating the fodder bank, fruit orchard, hedges and lawns. Tamil Nadu Water Supply and Drainage Board is supplying about 2.00 to 3.00 Lakhs liters of water daily from the Palar river water source and the balance quantity is met from 13 open wells and 2 bore wells situated inside the Zoological Park. The Park is having 11 kv sub stations to provide uninterrupted power supply. An amount of Rs.10.00 lakhs per year is paid to the Tamil Nadu Water supply and drainage Board towards water charges. During summer seasons, this park faces water scarcity due to low yield in the wells and reduction in supply of water from palar river water source. Steps are being taken to augment water supply by sinking more wells and open well at different places inside the park.
