The govt. has started reclaiming encroached lake beds in the IT city but unless citizens interact across class divides, these urban water bodies will continue to spew foam, says Leo F. Saldanha.

Lakes spewing foam and catching fire in Bangalore made big news for several weeks but this is just an indication of the times to come as we fill up water bodies with effluents or turn them into sewage dumps in most cities across India. 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.

With all the disappointing stories of Bangalore’s disappearing lakes, Jakkur Lake is a shining example of how urban water can be managed sustainably.

Jakkur Lake sits nestled behind the bustling Hebbal Highway that leads to Devanahalli International Airport. A pristine, quiet spot of nature in the midst of Bangalore, this lake stands testimony to the potential that exists to manage urban water sustainably, and in an integrated manner.

This event in Bangalore brought together children, people, photographers and cartoonists -- all for the love of their lake!
The morning of the Kere Habba on February 21, 2015, saw over 30 volunteers coming in as early as 7 a.m. and setting to work stringing festoons and paper lanterns between trees, sticking event posters, and more. Almost all the decorative items were home made by the children and adults. Snehadhara Foundation did likewise with sketches and artefacts painstakingly done by their children. Many hands made for quick work and it was all done in a couple of hours.
