Lakes are getting abused in various ways –in and around Perumbakkam, Madambakkam, Medavakkam, Karanai and Thalambur
CHENNAI: There are so many water boadies – Lakes in and around Perumbakkam, Madambakkam, Medavakkam, Karanai, Thalambur which are abused owing to lack of attention by the authorities.
Vacant lands adjoining the lake bund on the Medavalkkam – Kaleeswari Oil mill road (Perumbakkam Lake) have been turned Water Tanker Body Building work-shop and vehicle wash / water servicing center. All waste water, soap forms, oil discharged from vehicles while performing the water wash and garbage’s coming out of this un-authorized business is getting filled into the lakes. It is disheartening to see trucks; JCBs; Cars, Bikes are driven inside / alongside the lakes and washed using the lake water which will affect the natural eco system of life in the lakes as well as contaminate the lake water.
All these lakes as well are abused by way of creating water wells adjacent to the lake. On daily basis 100’s of water tankers are filled from these lake beds using water tankers has been run by people having good hold in politics/authorities has been increased more than 4 folds. If anyone wish to validate the volume of this business, they can check the number of water tankers on the Kaleeswari Oil Mill – Medavakkam Road from 8 to 11 PM daily.
We urge the Officials of the Water Resources Department in state and central government and Environment Ministry to look-into the seriousness of the issue and to take up restoration works of all these lakes, including the area around the lake be fenced to avoid misuse and saplings planted to strengthen the bund.
It’s an appeal, and not against any political parties or business people, let’s all join hands together to preserve the nature and the resources for our better tomorrow.
