July 28, 2017

Mysuru: Deputy Commissioner D. Randeep and Corporation Commissioner G. Jagadeesha visited the Kukkarahalli Lake, here this morning and inspected the ongoing works.

There are 13 inlets into the lake that have been blocked because of the wild growth of shrubs. The environmentalists and the morning walkers, who accompanied the DC and the Commissioner, pointed out that the UGD water is flowing into the lake, leading to its pollution.

The MCC has taken up the clearing of the growth, said the DC and added that he  has instructed the Kukkarahalli Lake Expert Committee to submit a pre-feasibility report within a week regarding setting up of a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) at Kukkarahalli Lake and installing a 7.5 km pipeline to draw sewage water from Hebbal Industrial Area and surrounding areas to be treated at Kukkarahalli STP.

Later, the DC inspected the Physics Department where the inlet is blocked and asked the Executive Engineer Kishore Chandra and Assistant Executive Engineer Shivalinga Prasad to get blocked inlet cleared at the earliest.

He also inspected the Kudaremala canal near the Fine Arts College bridge on Bogadi Road and said that efforts are on to clear the blocked canal so that the water can be released into the lake.

The Tourism Department had released Rs. 3 crore for the beautification of Kukkarahalli Lake out of which Rs 1.35 crore is used for fencing and construction of toilets for the walkers and the general public, said the DC.

The Lake Expert Committee members U.N. Ravikumar, KSPCB Environment Secretary Geetha, MCC Superintending Engineer Suresh Babu and others were present.

DC visits malls: Later, DC Randeep and Tahsildar C. Ramesh Babu visited the new multiplexes coming up at Metagalli and near the Police Academy at Nazarbad. They found the entry and the exit  at the Metagalli mall narrow and asked the builders to increase the width and also make the parking space broader.

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “DC inspects Kukkarahalli Lake”

    Some suggestions for development of Lake.
    when I was kid like in 1996, I used to go to swimming in university pool and spend my rest in lake till my father come and pick me, I was always lucky to view this lake with full of water and pleasant ambience.
    I request our DC to use some new technologies and innovative idea for welfare of this lake and public.
    Use precast walls for building compound with reasonable height, it will save lot of time and workmanship which will reduce cost by 30%
    Compound columns should have lights to beautify vicinity and for security reasons
    It will be great if, Lights are powered by solar energy
    Electric tripod gates at each entrance with synchronized timings for opening and closing timings
    CCTV at each entrance
    KIds play area
    Stone bench across the lake to sit and relax
    Good world class washrooms for men and women at least near to each entrance.
    Renovation of that tower which is half merged in water to a light house to enthusiast children

    All these point can be easily covered, can be taken into consideration and can be implement with above mentioned budget of 1.35CR, but our bureaucrats should be innovative and proactive.

    Thank you and regards
