Encroachments shrink Hoodi, Sadaramangala lakes to death 19.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Plaster of Paris Ganesha idols and heaps of garbage dumped in Sadaramangala Lake, KR Puram, have remain uncleared, painting a sorry picture of the waterbody. Hoodi Lake, which is situated nearby, is also in shambles. The two lakes have shrunk drastically over the years. Hoodi lake, at one point in time, spanned 15.10 acres. The catchment area of these lakes was encroached upon by builders even as officials looked the other way. About 1.29 acres of Hoodi lake has been encroached upon by the government itself to build roads and burial grounds. Seema Garg, CEO, Karnataka Lake Conservation and Development Authority, said officials involved in the encroachment do not take the permission of the Authority before going ahead with the projects.

Gridlock on potholed ORR makes commuting a nightmare 16.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Waterlogged roads, traffic snarls and potholes have turned the Ecospace service road on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) Bellandur into a living hell. The road which is home to a host of IT biggies, MNCs and many upscale city residential clusters is a nightmare for motorists, pedestrians and residents alike. Incessant rains over the last few days caused the Savalkere Lake to overflow onto Ecospace road. Police were seen struggling to handle traffic from late in the night until the early hours of Monday. Savalkere Lake near the Ecospace service road overflowed and water gushed on to the ORR causing waterlogging at the tech park RMZ Ecospace on the arterial road. Savalkere is one of the largest lakes in the city. According to local residents, most part of the lake is encroached upon by illegal builders, causing blockages and silting of rajakaluves (stormwater drains). There are five lakes around Sarjapur. If one lake overflows, the water should flow through the drain to another lake. The water overflowing in ...
