  1. 1. Strategic Action Planning for Revival of Bangalore Lakes Prasad Modak
  2. 2. Bangalore Lakes: Progression of Issues Rapid Loss of forest Urbanization coverIncreased requirements of Increased Disposal Disposal of Industrial Non-point land, water & Waste, of SW untreated Effluents sources Infrastructure Runoff Sewage Encroachment Recreatio Immersion s n and Increased of Idols Change in Landuse other in- Pollution situ uses Interception Interconnectin and Decrease Deterioration g channels impairment in Env. of Lakes Poor flows maintenance Pressure on Groundwater Silting 2
  3. 3. Impacts on Lakes Drying of Risks to Water lakes Decreased SecurityDecrease water in Env. Change in Lake Effect on Micro- availability flows morphology Decreased climate Biodiversity GW Depletion Impact on Avian and Fauna Degradation Impacts: Short term? Long term? Reversible? Irreversible? Risks to Water Security, Additionally of Climate Change? 3

  7. 7. Justice Patil Committee: Action Plan Allocation of Lakes to BBMP, BDA, LDA, KFD for –  Installation of fence and laying of embankments  Identification of unauthorized construction within the areas of the lakes and the removal thereof  Removal of silt and weeds  Stoppage of flow of untreated wastewater into lakes Additional activities  Survey of the lakes (Revenue Dept.)  Water Quality monitoring (KSPCB)  Management of sewage in the entire BBMP area (BWSSB)  Management of storm water (BBMP)  Aforestation (Forests department) 7
  8. 8. What is needed? A strategic, coordinated and sustained scientific approach is necessary Basin/ Watershed approach is required with lake prioritization Lake degradation related issues need to be studied in depth Use of modern tools: Math modeling, Remote sensing, Bio-monitoring Innovative technologies for in-situ treatment in channels, in-situ remediation in lakes need to be explored New models for “conservation finance”, institutional roles and partnerships 8
