Short-term Lake Stench Advisory

Updated: Nov 13, 2020

Per the lake expert committee, as the lake is in the process of being dewatered and desilted, in the short time, there might be times that the lake gives out strong stench. Brace yourself in the short term as the lake gets restored for the near future. The diversion channels flow with sewage and the sediments exposed to the smell give out the smell.

“As the lake sediments are exposed to sun, foul smell will emanate as will mosquitoes. BBMP will have to take steps to mitigate both, but nearby residents should brace for the worst.”
