Dehradun, July 17 (ANI): The Naini Lake in Nainital has fallen victim to careless human behavior. The lake's water, which has spiritual importance, is being polluted by garbage and sewerage water.
"This sewage water is polluting the holy water of this lake. The authorities should clean it so that the purity of the lake will be maintained," a local resident said.
The authorities have initiated a National Lake Conservation Project (NLCP) with an amount of 110 million rupees, but no improvement is visible as yet.
The Chairman of Municipal Corporation, Mukesh Joshi said:"The municipal corporation spreads awareness among tourists that garbage or wastes should not be dropped in the lake apart from this, we are working for the waste water of the city and rain water. We have initiated various lake conservation projects in the city. We have also appointed fifteen boys to clear the garbage from the lake."
The lake is ringed by hills and many take to boating across it. (ANI)
