Owing to good rains in the Western Ghats for the past two days, the dam witnessed a huge influx. Meanwhile, the district administration closed the pathway to Ramnathi Dam. It restricted the public from taking bath in the dam water, despite scores of tourists thronging Ramnathi for a week due to the bathing ban at the Courtallam Falls.
