NLCIL gives prime importance to augment the water spread area of reservoirs and thereby increasing the capacity and carries out various renovation works through the CSR schemes. After 2015 flood, number of requests were received from the members of Legislative Assembly, Lok Sabha and officials of District Administration to desilt the water bodies to store more water.

During the years 2017-18 and 2018-19 the company has desilted 19 lakes in Neyveli, Vridhachalam, Bhuvanagiri and Kurinchipadi assembly constituencies of Cuddalore district at a cost of Rs. 4.62 crore.

In this connection, need was felt for sinking of borewells in the desilted water bodies and installing pumping systems to make permanent arrangements for ensuring water availability throughout the year.  Apart from desilting, NLCIL has sunk borewells in the desilted lakes and installed solar  powered pumps for filling the lakes with ground water, so that this water can be utilized by the villagers during drought and summer seasons.

During the first phase, NLCIL has sunk 10 borewells in Perperiyankuppam, Marungur, Sorathur, Keezhakuppam and Melmampattu lakes in Neyveli constituency and Kuppanatham, Veenankanni, Lakshmi Narayanapuram, Muthanai lakes and senghal Eri in other constituencies and installed solar powered submersible pumps at a cost of Rs. 140 lakhs.
