Rains breathe new life in to lakes

The Lake Development Authority can't hide its glee. The lakes it had restored over the past two years were lying barren thanks to the failure of rains in the last two years. The pre-monsoon showers that have hit the city over the last 3 weeks, the best in 3 decades in Bangalore, have breathed a new life into these lakes. And with the monoon on its way things can only get better. The Dodda Bommsandra, Nagavara, Vengayyanakere, Ulsoor, Sankey and Beniganahalli lakes now have sustainable water levels. The LDA is currently in the process of restoring the Jaraganahalli, Lalbagh, Yediyur, Agara and Bellandur lakes in collaboration with the BDA and BMP. Soon, the Vasanthapura, Varthur, Hosakerehalli and Jakkur lakes will also be taken up for restoration.
