“Garbage, sewage and construction debris are eating up Bengaluru’s Chunchaghatta lake situated in the Konankunte ward, adjacent to Eshwar Layout in southern JP Nagar.”

This is what an article on Citizen Matters said, more than five years ago. The article can be read here(Chunchaghatta = Chunchughatta) 

Now residents from the area have taken it upon themselves to clean up the lake.

Do join the Friends of Lake – Chunchughatta Kere on Sunday, 12th June 2016, 7 a.m. to help clean the lake. Assemble at the flagpost, Gaurav Nagar, behind Brigade Gardenia. More details are in the poster below.
