KUKKARAHALLI LAKE DEVELOPMENT: Experts visit Lake, seek public opinion

The two-member expert committee appointed by Karnataka Lake Development Authority visited the Kukkarahalli Lake yesterday to collect public opinion on pro and anti-development of the Lake and its environmental impact. The committee comprised retired Professor Ramprasad from the Indian Institute of Science and retired Chief Engineer C.N. Babu.

The University of Mysore and the district administration had jointly planned to implement a Rs. 3 crore project for de-silting, constructing toilets, boating jetty, entry arches and shelters on the tank bund. Environmentalists had opposed the project and responding to the protests, DC Randeep had written to the Lake Development Authority to depute two experts to study the Lake’s conservation.
