Bellandur Lake Maintenance

This particular lake has unfortunately been very much in the news for all the wrong reasons up until now! Suggesting remedies for saving it from being polluted on a daily basis is like placing one's hand in fire!!

The best method is to tackle the problem at the source where it occurs. Alternate solution to ensure sewage water does not get mixed with storm water is the only way. No quick fix solution is possible. I wish I had some good news. Of course there are new technologies to convert the entire lake into a crystal clear, Taihiti-like beach with a lagoon like effect, but that requires courage and energy to tackle vested interests in Government. 

Let us pray we can find a solution to tackle the rot amongst the authorities to enable us to tackle the rot in the lake!

Best wishes,

 The purpose of the meeting is to deliberate on a plan of action, to fix up a Praja meeting with the water authorities like BWSSB / Lake authority.

Dear All,

I am sorry I did not see this message up until now. I am not in Bangalore on 4th July. Sorry I wont be able to attend this meeting. Will catch up with you all after 10th July as i am pretty tied up till then.

My suggestion for the best way forward regarding Bellandur lake maintenance is to pressurise the authorities to look for best solution available in the whole world. Let them float an Expression of Interest for Global participation. Some very interesting results will materialise.

There are parties willing to take up the entire cleaning and maintenance on BOOT basis - which means local authorities will not have to shelve out large sums of money in one go. If a foreign Company is willing to upgrade the entire Bellandur Lake at their cost involving an investment of (say) US$ 20 million and if they are willing to collect an annual fee from BWSSB / BBMP of US$ 1 million for 30 years, will the authorities be willing? The fee is payable after the year is over, so in case of default on any count, the authorities can deduct liquidated damages.

Countries like Chile in South America are doing such deals and everyone is enjoying crystal clear lagoon-like water bodies for a whole generation!

Just my two penny worth.
