This situation influences the socio-economic status of the people of this region. Hence SEEDS has given priority to work on the Watershed Development activities. From the year 2011, we have been developing water harvesting systems like checkdams, farm ponds, deepening of ooranis, channel renovation, field bunds, bush clearance, levelling and tree plantation in five village Panchayats in the Kariapatti Block of Virudhunagar District with the support of National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) and Tamil Nadu Watershed Development Agency (TAWDEVA). 

The establishments of water harvesting systems have helped to recharge the open well and drinking water borewells which ultimately improve the water capacity of the cultivable lands leading increase in the cropping system and cropping pattern.
