About Restoration of Water Bodies

The Chennai Metropolitan has been largely dependent on ground water for its sustenance.In turn these shallow well and tanks were recharged only during the annual rains. Due to rapid urbanization and industrialization, hundreds of water bodies adjacent to the urban center and the extended city have already vanished or encroached upon and the rest are either on the verge of extinction or dumped with solid wastes and waste water effluents disturbing the local flora and fauna and also the lives of people living nearby.

Chennai Smart City Limited(CSCL) , a special purpose vehicle established to execute Smart-City projects, is looking at the possibility of bringing corporates and civil society organisations on board the waterbodies restoration programme.

The Greater Chennai Corporation has identified 210 water bodies across 15 zones in its jurisdiction, to be taken up for rejuvenation. Restoration works have already been initiated in many of the lakes and ponds. In a few of the water bodies the projects has been completed with great success.

What Are We Going To Do ?

The Greater Chennai Corporation has acknowledged the importance of ground water for sustenance and survival.The action plan for restoration of these water bodies has been carefully prepared with an objective to increase or restore water holding capacity of the lake, improve the quality of water and evolve a sustainable management plan post restoration. By understanding the biotic and abiotic factors that affect the condition of water bodies, various implementation measures are envisaged.

  1. Cleaning of invasive weeds / plants inside and around the kulam
  2. De-silting to deepen the water holding capacity and better percolation
  3. Bund strengthening of the kulam with the excavated silt
  4. Trenching and central harvesting pit
  5. Regulate inlet and outlet wherever required
  6. Native species bund plantation and fencing
  7. Extensive community awareness and outreach
  8. Core groups to be formed for lake maintenance & training , capacity building shall be a part of it
  9. Bio remediation and ozonisation technique to be implemented to improve the quality of water
