Description

Three years after Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) took up rejuvenation of Arekere lake, it continues to be counted among one of the most polluted water bodies in Bengaluru. As of now, the lake has almost dried up.

Apart from a fence and a board cautioning against dumping of garbage, the BDA has failed to keep its promise to revive the lake. Today, it is contaminated by sewage while large tracts of land in the surroundings have been encroached.
