Restoring Water Bodies
Transforming Chennai

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.
