An audit check of 10 lakes in Bengaluru has revealed large-scale encroachment, dumping of debris, release of untreated sewage, delay in restoration work and other lapses. The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India's report for 2015 on "Conservation and ecological restoration of lakes under the jurisdiction of lake development authority and urban local bodies", tabled in the legislature, also revealed restoration works were carried out without arresting sewage flow.

CAG raps State government for failing to protect lakes 29.6.2015 deccanherald.com
The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has slammed the State government for its failure to protect and conserve lakes in the State, including those in Bengaluru. The performance audit on "Conservation and ecological restoration of lakes under the jurisdiction of Lake Development Authority and urban local bodies" for the period 2009-2014, the national auditor has found 47 of the 56 test-checked lakes severely polluted. The performance audit covered 56 lakes, including 36 coming under the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA). Water quality of none the lakes conformed to the prescribed standards. Efforts to reduce the pollution by checking the flow of sewage were inadequate. Interestingly, the emphasis of the implementing agencies was seen to focus more on engineering measures rather than ecological preservation and restoration of the lakes. "Works like de-silting were carried out excessively and without justification. Instead of prioritising core works ...

Development, a painfully slow work in progress here 28.6.2015 deccanherald.com
The nine wards in KR Puram Assembly constituency have seen development only in pockets. Open sewage-filled drains, poorly lit streets and uncontrolled stray dog menace paint a picture of apathy and neglect. Eight years ago, when KR Puram came under the expanded Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) limits, thousands harboured a faint hope that their roads, drains and waste collection would improve. Today, on the threshold of big changes in the BBMP, the nine wards under the KR Puram constituency are still struggling with problems linked to sewage-filled stormwater drains, stray dogs, poorly lit streets, poor bus connectivity and more. Deccan Herald dives deep into the wards to take a hard look at their condition, talking directly to the residents. Ward 87: HAL Airport For years, the Ambedkar Road linking Old Airport Road with the HAL Airport ward's Islampur, LB Shastri Nagar, Jagdeeshnagar and other areas has remained untarred.
