The ongoing flora and fauna survey by green groups at Kaikondrahalli lake has led to the identification of a variety of new species.

Environment protection groups, Save Bangalore Lakes Trust (SBLT) and Namma Bengaluru Foundation (NBF), have brought out a report on the encroachment of lakes in the City.

The BMRCL and the BWSSB blame each other for poor condition of the Kengeri lake.

The Kengeri lake is unlikely to be rejuvenated any time soon, due to the lack of co-operation between the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) and the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB).

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) says it has found a way to control the growth of aquatic weeds, the wild plants which pose a big challenge to revival of the City's vanishing lakes.

Water bodies in the City are fast vanishing due to rampant encroachment.

A report on the condition of lakes in the City is being prepared by lake activists under the aegis of Save Bangalore Lake Trust.
Under the initiative, the volunteers will document the quality of water, the extent of encroachment on the lakes and other crucial information. The photographs of the lakes will also be taken for documentation. The data is being gathered from the local community and also through RTE queries.
