The state government has and is taking up a series of activities to ensure that the lakes in the city are clean and sewage-free. Right now, various measures are being taken in different parts of the city to divert sewage pollutants and keep the lakes clean and green. As of now, the restoration of 19 lakes polluted due to rapid urbanization is underway in the city.


Two works are being executed at the cost of Rs 279.78 crore. The government has also initiated the Dial a Septic Tank project, wherein 87 septic tankers are transporting fecal matter and treating it at the fecal sludge treatment plant near Nalla Cheruvu, Uppal. As a part of the program, 80 unregulated private desludging operators have also been licensed.


And to give a helping hand to the state government, private companies have also adopted around ten lakes in the city. Currently, the sewerage diversion works are in progress at Durgam Cheruvu, and works are going on at Barla Kunta Lake, Gachibowli. Ramammakunta Lake is also all set for restoration.


Meanwhile, the National Institute of Tourism and Hospitality Management is planning to develop the lake into a joggers' park. Also, works worth Rs 94.17 crore are being taken up by GHMC at 63 lakes to prevent pollutants from entering the lake, putting up fencing around the lake, and developing greenery, among others.


Removal of water hyacinth has also been given to agencies. The MAUD department is also planning to put up floating trash collectors on the lakes. At Hussain Sagar, a floating boom barrier has been installed at Picket Nala to prevent the trash from coming into the water body.


Officials also say that periodic inspections are being carried out at Sewage Treatment Plant.
