Revive Lakes

About This Project

‘Revive Lakes’ programme focuses on cleaning and greening existing water bodies that have vanished or are under the threat of vanishing, keeping cities at a greater risk of water shortage.

 

Why

Lakes which are scattered and placed in all vantage areas in most cities, have an important role in recharging groundwater. The capability of these lakes to trap and store rainwater is enormous. The rainwater that could be harvested through these lakes would meet any city’s water requirements partially. Lakes also form a unique irreplaceable system, and are often home to diverse living beings including fish, birds, and a variety of flora and fauna.

 

How

The programme focuses on sensitising local residents not to encroach, not to let sewage contaminate the water body, to keep cattle away, and not to allow illegal activities like debris dumping.

 

Where

The programme is currently ongoing in Vibhutipura Lake in Bengaluru; over 30 volunteers actively volunteer every week to clean up, sensitise, and engage as many stakeholders as possible.
