Neknampur Lake in Hyderabad has become a victim of garbage and sewage dumping, which has changed the once beautiful lake into a polluted and sewage-filled water body.
Dhruvansh, a voluntary organization is all set up to protect Neknampur Lake. This organization works for protection of water bodies, has taken the initiative to clean up this lake and its surroundings to bring the lake, back to life. They have decided to work towards purifying the water, in a natural way.
The 2,500 sq ft platform has been designed using Styrofoam, bamboo, gunny bags, coir etc. and will act as a base around 3000 plants including cattails, bulrush, citronella, hibiscus, fountain grass, flowering herbs, and ashwagandha.
These plants were selected after a lot of consideration. This combination is said to be mosquito repellent which is also helping in cleaning water and increasing the biodiversity of the lake.
We hope that the lake would eventually go back to being an ideal habitat for birds and other animals.
