Environmental emergency in Bellandur lake, not even 1 ml of clean water available, NGT informed 14.6.2018 DNA: Top News
 Indiscriminate discharge of untreated sewage into Bengaluru's Bellandur lake has resulted in an "environmental emergency", a committee has told the National Green Tribunal, adding that there is not even one millilitre of clean water in the lake. The NGT-mandated committee said the biggest lake of the beautiful city of Bengaluru had become the largest septic tank of the city due to "sheer callousness and indifference" of the authorities. "According to the material collected, the water holding capacity of Bellandur lake has rapidly shrunk due to indiscriminate dumping of construction and demolition waste, municipal solid waste and due to vast spread of hydrophyte and microphytes in the lake water. Hydrophytes are aquatic plants that grow in or near water and provides cover for fish and other aquatic organisms. "The commission during the inspection was shocked to notice a road that has been constructed on the Varthur lake by dumping construction and demolition waste under the garb of laying a pipeline," ...

You have made Bengaluru's largest lake into the city's biggest septic tank: NGT-formed committee slams K'taka govt 13.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
A special commission that has been set up by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) to inspect Bengaluru’s lakes slammed the Karnataka government saying that it had ‘miserably failed to discharge their obligations to the society and their duties,’ India Today reported. “The biggest lake of the beautiful city of Bengaluru by sheer callousness and indifference of the authorities has become the largest septic tank of the city," the commission stated in its report.  Last February, the Union Ministry for Environment had ordered an inquiry into a fire that had broken out in the garbage strewn around Bellandur lake. Due to several reasons, the main being dumping of construction waste and municipal solid waste, along with the spreads of hydrophytes (underwater plants) and microphytes, the lake’s water holding capacity has reduced. Commission members also pointed out that the storm water drain outlets near the lake were discharging sewage and industrial effluents, which in turn were released into the lake.  The report ...
