The Chairman, Karnataka State Pollution Control Board, Dr. Vaman Acharya will be formally inaugurating the pipeline to supply surplus treated water from the Sewage Treatment Plant of South City apartments (Arekere Mico Layout) to the Puttenahalli Lake tomorrow, Sunday 17th May at 10:00 a.m. 

After the pipeline was laid, a trial to check for any leakages was done earlier this month, and it seems that all is fine. We are truly grateful to the South City Management Committee and to the residents for helping us revive and replenish Puttenahalli Lake. On an average we can expect a discharge of 4 to 8 lakh litres of water every day. The treated water meets the parameters set by the KSPCB for urban reuse and will not harm the aquatic lives that the lake supports.

It is for the first time that treated water from an apartment complex will be used to fill a lake in the city. More about this project can be read about in an earlier post here

Please be a part of this milestone moment for PNLIT and the lake, by first joining us at the STP in South City at 9:45 a.m. tomorrow, and after this at the lake.

With hope in our hearts
The PNLIT Team
