Silting in powai lake

Lake powai, years ago, had the pleasure of hosting boat rides for its visitors. But since some years it has been reeling under heavy weed growths and silting. The water is only a few feet deep at some places, thanks to the silting and disposal into the lake from all its shores.

Lots of lake lovers are working on getting BMC to clean it up. BMC is requested to pay heed to this nice ecology of the lake and the calm and serene environment it provides right in the midst of the hustle-bustle of the city life.

BMC has been so negligent that water supply to the whole city which was done from Powai Lake had to stopped years ago because of pollution and silting in the lake.

BMC should allocate proper funds and efforts towards cleaning of the lake and making it a picnic spot. This ways BMC can even earn revenue from the lake.
