It provides natural resources to people living around it, acts as a sink for fisher folk cleaning fish or women doing laundry, and receives treated sludge from new residences around it.

Rachenahalli is one of the few living lakes in north Bangalore. It is connected to water bodies upstream and downstream, particularly Jakkur Lake on the north-east. Both these lakes have been rejuvenated at substantial costs by the Bangalore Development Authority over the last decade. A sewage treatment plant (STP) with a capacity to treat 10 million litres a day was set up north of Jakkur Lake by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB). Water from the STP flows into Rachenahalli Lake when Jakkur Lake overflows during monsoon.

India Water Portal talks to Leo F. Saldanha of Bangalore-based Environment Support Group on how to manage these precious resources.

About Arghyam’s GW-SAN Nexus Research Programme

This Groundwater- Sanitation Nexus Research Programme has been developed to deepen the understanding of linkages between ground-water and sanitation in the Indian context, and move towards an integrated approach. At present, the empirical evidence or knowledge about the linkages between groundwater and sanitation, is limited. The GW-SAN Nexus programme aims to bridge some of these knowledge gaps through pure and applied research, and by consolidating existing knowledge on this and related subjects.
