Save lakes: lok adalat to civic agencies-Bangalore-Cities-The Times of India
Hearing the 1998 PIL on water supply to Bellandur, the high court lok adalat has directed civic authorities to identify all tanks and
lakes where sewage water is let out, and prepare a comprehensive project for rejuvenation of such water bodies. The tribunal has asked the BWSSB, BDA, BBMP and other agencies to coordinate in the implementation of the project. The tribunal has also suggested setting up of an expert committee.
The court rapped the pollution control board for not implementing its order of closure on six hospitals for failing to set up treatment plants.
