What are the common issues that our lakes face today?

  • Blockage of the inlets and outlets thereby choking the lake
  • Letting in raw sewage that causes pollution beyond limits
  • Encroachment and constructions/other commercial purposes
  • Lack of bio-diversity, flora, fauna and aquatic life system
  • Dumping of debris and other waste materials including idol immersions
  • Boundary not being marked and fenced
  • Apathy from the people living around it

An ideal lake must be free from the above and must have active stakeholder engagement maintaining the lake.
