Bengaluru"s lakes, among the most polluted in the world, are only getting worse. Recent data from the Karnataka Pollution Control Board shows that water quality remains very poor, while the state government and BBMP received a rap from the National Green Tribunal for making no progress on lake rejuvenation. The trouble is that the storm water drains, which empty into the lakes, carry sewage.

The lake was in good condition until last year. United Conservation Movement has lambasted the authorities for neglecting the lake and demanded that the Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka should take the issue as a sou moto case.
