In a prime residential area near Magarpatta Road, a 100 ft. water pit surrounded by waste and garbage has been a prime breeding ground for dengue mosquitoes, rodents and snakes of the likes of Cobra. Residents of Spring Valley Housing Society are battling with this water pit and waste area issue since past seven years with no respite. Sightings of snakes (many of which are venomous) are a daily affair. Many children and senior citizens have had a close brush with snakes during play time and evening walks and the situation is getting worse by the day. The pit is surrounded by huge pile of debris of construction material as well as garbage posing severe health and safety issues for thousands of citizens near Magarpatta. Builder refuses to take action/ownership of the place despite several follow ups.    

Here is a quick visual look at the dismal state -
