Good job LDA

The Lake Development Authority constituted by the S M Krishna Government in 2002 has done an admirable job. Set up to rejuvenate water bodies in a city which at the turn of the 20th century had over 200 lakes, but left with only 15 surviving ones now, the authority has already restored the Hebbal, Vasanthapura, Sankey, Ulsoor lakes and is working on the Yediyur Lake and Kempambudhi Tank. The BDA has also revived the Beniganahalli Lake and work is in progress at the Agara Lake. Its mandate, initially restricted to the Bangalore Metropolitan Region, has now been extended to the whole of Karnataka state.
