Lake conservation team is a part of Campus 2 community, an internship programme of Students for development, which works on conservation of Bengaluru lakes. The team started it's work on veersandra lake in electronic city phase1, under the guidance of Ramesh Sivram,a renowned environmentalist. The lake was most polluted .
We started our work by mapping the lake, finding inlets and outlets, surveying people in the surrounding area.
We also did video documentary on the lake and it's pollution. This was put in YouTube to reach every person. This had an impact on the concerned authorities.
After the survey and video documentary BMRCL has taken over the lake to rejuvenate.
Presently we are continuing with laboratory tests for water quality parameters and fish diversity which indicates the health of lake. The team has started primary survey in chikkanagamangala lake, which is nearby to veersandra lake.
