WRD officials said the boundary wall could well possibly be built for a size of 6-7 km corresponding to the one built alongside Cooum river, with gaps to enable inflow of floodwater into the lake. About 100 encroachments have been diagnosed around the lake, and the blueprint in which to resettle and rehabilitate them is below system. “We’re following up with local authorities in Kundrathur to arena up a medication facility and run sewage outfalls flowing into the lake in the course of the Thanthikal Channel,” an legitimate said.
Residents demanded that the encroachments within the inlet channels be removed earlier than the northeast monsoon.

The lake is an ingesting water source and also can merely play a pivotal role within the Metrowater’s courageous project on the indirect declare of reclaimed water, he added.
