IISC experts warn of more PES-like flooding 1.9.2014 deccanherald.com
In the wake of the recent incident of water from Rayasandra lake flooding the PES College campus in Electronics City, experts from Indian Institute of Science (IISc) warn that many other parts of Bangalore are prone to flooding as lake beds and rajakaluves have been encroached upon. The Centre of Ecological Sciences, IISc, had prepared a report on the pathetic condition of lakes and stormwater drains and submitted it to the government in 2009. But experts point out that the report lies in cold storage and no corrective measures have been taken so far. Prof T V Ramachandra, senior scientist, Energy and Wetland Research Centre, CES, IISc, said: "We had prepared a detailed survey of prime lakes in Bangalore City. After this, periodic surveys of some lakes too were conducted. The list includes Kempambudhi lake, Sankey Tank, Agaram lake, Varthur lake and Bellandur lake, to name a few. Many stormwater drains around lakes and flowing through main roads like Vittal Malya Road were also studied. We found that ...

10 of 63 City lakes exist only on paper 29.8.2014 deccanherald.com
As many as 10 out of 63 City lakes exist only on paper, and another 26 have nothing of their original identity, a Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) communique has revealed. Emphasising the pathetic state of water bodies in Bangalore, once famed as the "City of Thousand Lakes", a list of 36 lakes sent by BBMP to the deputy commissioner (DC) of Bangalore Urban district has revealed that strategically located Sankey Tank in posh Sadashivanagar too, has not escaped encroachment. As part of a series of letters written to the DC, the BBMP lake division wrote another letter on August 25, 2014 seeking the survey sketch of these 36 lakes, which have been partially or totally encroached upon.
