Toxic froth from lake recedes, rain-hit areas recovering 18.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The citys famous Bellandur lake continued to spew toxic froth today, but it is reducing because of receding rains. After being pounded by a record-breaking downpour early this week, the city is on the road to recovery. "The lake still continues to spew toxic froth. Continues to fly, though it is not that nightmarish as it was during the torrential rainfall four days back. "It is reducing because of receding rains," Lakes Conservation Expert and resident of the area, Shalini Batra Sahni told PTI, here today. Incessant rains on August 14 and 15 had resulted in the increase of the lakes water levels and the formation of toxic froth. The rains had aggravated the situation with thick froth spilling on to the road nearby causing inconvenience to commuters driving along the stretch. "This, however, is not the scene today," she said. Sahni expressed fear about residents living around the lake developing disease by coming in contact with toxic froth flying around. After the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had ...

Citizens actively monitoring the efforts to save Bellandur lake are happy that the National Green Tribunal (NGT) is pursuing the matter seriously.

"The NGT's approach to monitoring the progress through a local officer is significant. This will force the administration into taking timely action with the active involvement of citizen watch bodies," he said.

But till today, the majority of the sources have not been identified at all while the KSPCB tries to show activity by persecuting lakeside apartments which are responsible for a mere ...
