Fish die as polluted water enters Dorekere lake 24.4.2015 deccanherald.com
Heavy inflow of highly contaminated water from the adjoining stormwater drain into the historic Dorekere lake near Uttarahalli due to torrential rain on Thursday night resulted in large-scale fishkill. Morning walkers of BHCS Layout and adjoining areas were in for a rude shock on Friday morning when they noticed dead fish floating in the lake. Due to the fishkill and the contamination of water, the lake was stinking. The watchman of the lake immediately alerted the engineers in the BBMP Lake Division and the former Uttarahalli corporator K Ramesh Raju. Quick measures were taken to clear the lake of the dead fish. Yet, it could not be done till late in the evening. A morning walker, B V Mahesh, said this was the fifth time that the fishkill had happened in Dorekere. Whenever there is heavy rainfall, the adjoining SWD gets flooded and its dirty water gushes into the lake. An engineer in the BBMP lake division denied any fishkill at Dorekere.He said some fish keep dying but that did not fall into the ...

Tackle illegal dumping of garbage on lake bund, say residents 21.4.2015 deccanherald.com
Even as the Bengaluru Urban district administration is carrying out an anti-encroachment drive at Sarakki Lake, another issue which needs to be dealt with by the authorities immediately is the dumping of garbage at the vast waterbody, residents and lake activists have said. The residents complained that about 10-15 Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) trucks unload the garbage at the lake bund during morning hours every day. While this is not the end, lorries carrying construction debris too enter the lake, they added. "The unloading of garbage and sorting out the waste are taking place since two to three years. They segregate and dump the unwanted things at the lake bund itself. We have raised this issue with the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) and the Palike's higher officials. But none of them are interested in solving the problem. Since fencing of the lake is incomplete, miscreants easily snug inside," a member from Sarakki Lake Area Improvement Trust said. Kshitij Urs, one of ...
