The bench asked for measures to be in place to see to it that inhabitants downstream were safe before the release of water from the dam.
The court said the idea was to resolve the "calamity, rescue and rehabilitate people" caught in flood.
The bench also asked the Kerala Chief Secretary to file an affidavit on what steps were being taken for disaster management, rescue and rehabilitation of those affected.
